Community VBS FAQs

main image
This year’s Community VBS is similar... and different.

How so?

Here are some things for you to know as parents, participants, and volunteers:

New Location


We’re meeting at Holloway High School.

This is very close to both Bradley Academy and Patterson Park Community Center.

What’s the theme?

Our theme this year is “Building God’s Kingdom.” The theme will take us through God’s standards for how to live, how our sin undermines this, and how God extends his grace to us in Jesus Christ to be part of his Kingdom.
Lessons will be age-appropriate, interactive, and fun and will incorporate music, games, and other activities.

So What is Mess Fest?

On Friday, June 7, kids/teens will be able to engage in a series of field-day-style, messy games.
Prepare to get wet, messy, and have a lot of fun! (Pack a change of clothes and some towels)

How can I sign up to attend?

Please visit the Community VBS page. Scroll down and select the option to attend as either an adult or child/teen. Once you sign up, you will receive reminders and updates as the date draws closer. We want everyone to attend!

Who can attend?

Children who are potty trained and as young as three years old may attend. We will have classes for children, teenagers, and adults.

Can I still volunteer?

Absolutely! You can sign up to serve in many areas. We still need folks for serving food, as teaching assistants, and registration to name a few.
Please sign up soon so you can receive info and attend some of our all-volunteer meeting on May 30th and walkthrough on June 3.

What churches are sponsoring Community VBS?

We are part of 10 churches in and around downtown Murfreesboro. For a full list of churches see the Community VBS landing page here. We are very thankful and blessed our partnership together.
Ultimately, our goal is to share the love of Jesus and invite people in our community to follow him. We pray that lives are changed and we see people follow through in getting plugged into the life of our local churches. Thank you for helping us make this happen through your service and participation!

Jump With Your Kids

main image

Trampolines are fun.

I loved jumping on my friend’s trampoline when I was a kid.  I thought I was a straight-up ninja.  I felt like I could fly. In all my flips, twists, spins, and tricks I felt like a Cirque du Soleil acrobat.  

Questionable awesomeness aside my favorite move was what we called the “double-jump”.  The double-jump requires more than one person.  You see, it happens when one person times their jump at just the right moment before the other hits the surface.  The result is pure joy. The other person is able to jump higher than they ever could on their own.  Still don’t know what I’m talking about?  You should watch this short video.  

The double-jump is our hope for Jump Day on May 30th and now is the time to make your move.  We see this as a tag-team effort to celebrate together.  CityKids with City Students.  Parents and kids with their leaders.  We are partnering together to see students, kids, and families grow in the gospel, community, and mission together.  This is a chance for us to come together and just have fun.

This could even be a first step toward the gospel for some.  We hope you’ll take the opportunity to invite someone else to the party.  This is an opportunity for families, perhaps entire Community Groups, to reach out to other families in your neighborhoods and networks of relationships.  

So before you hit the park with your picnic lunch or light the grill for your Memorial Day BBQ, join us for Jump Day!  Tickets only cost $4 for kids 3 and under and $7 for kids/adults age 4 and up. You must purchase those in advance here. We also have a limited number of scholarshipped tickets as well. So email me at if you know someone who would love to come but may need a little help.

We hope to see you May 30th at 10:30am at Jumpstreet in Murfreesboro.
