Information for Parents or Guardians

It’s Vacation Bible School (VBS) time again! We would like to invite you to join us at Maplewood for To Mars and Beyond. It will be held July 15-19, from 5:45–8:30 p.m. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. You will find enclosed registration form(s) or register at our website

At VBS To Mars and Beyond, your students will discover the wonders of God’s universe becoming Voyagers on a journey through space exploring where God’s power can take them. Beginning in the Assembly area – an outpost on Mars – they will lift off to distant planets on special missions to collect power sources.

Along the way, they will learn how God walked with heroes of the Bible, and that God is always with them, too. Add to the adventure with out of this world fun, learning, and timeless Bible Stories that inspire children to give glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine!

They will expand on what they’ve discovered by participating in a variety of activities: making their own art projects at Craft Station, singing new songs at Music Station, playing games at Recreation Station, and enjoying tasty treats at Snack Station.

Along the way, the Voyagers will hear about our mission project! Our mission this year is providing support to a VBS in Northern Ireland. We will collect an offering every night to go toward supplies that are needed so they can effectively provide a fun VBS for the children in the various communities in Northern Ireland.

The activity on Wednesday night will involve water. Please be sure to have your children dress with this in mind and bring a towel. If you choose to send your child in/with a bathing suit please make sure it is modest .

We will NOT register your children until 5:30 p.m. You MUST have an adult attend to your child until they are registered. PLEASE make sure we know your child is here and checked in before you leave. We want to keep your children safe.

We look forward to sharing our hope in Christ with your children during our week of Vacation Bible School. While your children enjoy their time at To Mars and Beyond VBS, stop into our parent area for some light refreshments, coffee, and fun conversations. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the church office at 330-297-6424.
