As a kid detective, you will learn how to grow your faith and learn how to care for, serve and love others in a workshop style summer VBS. 

Kid detectives will select one workshop to participate in for the week.
Each workshop will be led
by highly skilled special agents.
Workshops run Monday – Thursday.
Friday we invite the whole family for a family event.
