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!
