Welcome wonderful VBS families, 

It has been our privilege to host you in the past for VBS at FCCOE. This summer we regret we are unable to host Vacation Bible School. We plan to do so next summer and hope you can join us then.  

We do recommend the following alternatives: 

North Shore Baptist VBS

Hamilton Congregational VBS


And we’d love to have you join us you at Sunday School at 9:30 a.m. Sunday mornings through June 10 and starting up again in September. We also have Children’s Church every Sunday during the service throughout the year (9:30 a.m. during the summer months and 10:30 a.m. during the school year). In Sunday School and Children’s Church your children get to learn about loving God and loving others, hear a Bible story, play a game, and do a craft. In these classes, our kids also undertake efforts to support others in need in our community and globally. 

Additional kids’ activities include a fun Fall Festival, a Christmas Pageant, and an Easter egg hunt. In addition, we have our Sunday school children participating in the services in the form of skits and plays. We would invite you to join us for any of these events! 

God’s blessings on you. Hope to see you next summer, if not sooner! 

-Ruth Melkonian-Hoover

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is one of the most exciting programs offered at FCCOE. 

[This description is for pre-COVID, please see the above letter for 2022]

Our mission is to bring the word of God to the children of the community.  One week out of the summer for 5 days from 5-8 p.m. (Sun. -Thurs.) our church is magically transformed into this amazing adventure. Children ages Pre-K to 8th grade come together to experience God’s word through Bible; buddies, points, verses, and stories reinforced through fun outdoor games, crafts/science projects, interactive story telling, themed dinners, animated movies, and fun songs & dances!

The children learn to watch for “God sightings”, make new friends and above all leave here knowing God loves them no matter what. All this is presented & supervised by the talented members of our congregation that make it all come alive! At the end of the week we show family & friends what a great week we had in a slide show like the ones below (2019 pre-COVID, 2020 COVID Virtually).
