Saint Mark Baptist Church is excited to offer a fun and safe summer learning opportunity for children ages 5 through 14 - Vacation Bible School. It is an evening program where kids can play, learn and explore the love of Christ through Bible, games, music, art, and other fun enriching activities. For a week they will make new friends, play themed games, make art, play sports, all in a warm, loving environment created by our passionate youth ministry volunteers.
Vacation Bible School is FREE to all community members, whether they regularly attend Saint Mark or not, and is offered at three different locations throughout the Little Rock metro area: The Saint Mark Church campus in midtown, Exalt Academy in SWLR, and Shorter College in NLR.
Vacation Bible School came to Little Rock thanks to
who are passionate about helping your child discover God’s love and guidance.
“Our church follows a child-first model that Jesus set forth when he said don’t stop the little children from coming to him. I love helping kids build a relationship with Christ. And it’s so important that we do this work. Most Americans who accept Christ as their personal savior do so between the ages of 4 and 14. At VBS, every child will gain a deeper understanding of God's love for them, and they'll have a fun time learning about God's Word.”
