Destination Dig (VBS 2021)

VBS 2021 is headed to present-day Israel where discovery awaits at Destination Dig. Kids will unearth more than dirt as they dig up exciting evidence that proves biblical events were not just stories. As junior archaeologists, kids will explore real-life archaeological finds that have helped to uncover the truth about Jesus! Along the way, they’ll discover the truth of Jeremiah 29:13, that God reveals Himself to us when we seek and search for Him with all our hearts.

Hoffmantown Kids VBS is a free event, June 7-11th, for kids who completed kindergarten through 6th grade. Registration for children is available at: or in the Kids Ministry Foyer.

It takes over 100 volunteers to do Vacation Bible School for our community. Will you prayerfully consider serving with this awesome team? We are currently seeking to fill lots of volunteer roles with all kinds of skill-sets both in classes with kids and not. We have a place for you! The Volunteer booth will be set up in the Fellowship Mall. You are welcome to contact Sarah Goodrich at to sign up or for more information.

The Equipping Ministry oversees baptisms, adult Sunday School classes, Next Steps classes, all Communication Card responses, gets prayer requests out to our faithful prayer warriors and coordinates our church celebrations including our family picnic. There are a couple of current needs in the Equipping Ministry. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact
