Learn more about our curriculum below.
Kids will be learning that they are made by God, that they are made for a relationship with Jesus, and that they are made to love others.
- Tuesday the kids will learn that they are fearfully and wonderfully made by God. (Psalm 139:13-16)
- Wednesday they’ll learn that they were made to trust Jesus as they hear how Jesus healed a blind man. (John 9:1-7)
- Thursday the kids will hear that they were made to follow Jesus as they hear a conversation between Jesus and a religious man named Nicodemus. (John 3:1-21)
- Friday they’ll learn that God made them to help others, just as the Good Samaritan helped a man who had been beaten and robbed. (Luke 10:25-37)
Then all the kids are invited to come back to the GLOW CELEBRATIONS at our week-end services on June 10-11, and learn that they can be the light of the world. (Matthew 5:13-16)
This year we are closing out Collide VBS with an epic weekend family experience. More information to come, stay tuned.
It is our desire that no student is ever prohibited from attending a Grace Place event because of finances. Therefore, we do our best whenever possible to provide assistance.
Please prayerfully consider how much you can put toward the event your student/child is attending. In an effort to increase ownership, we typically do not reward full scholarships. We cannot promise a scholarship to everyone who applies, but please know that we take every application into careful consideration. Thanks for applying.

If I volunteer for the entire week, can my children under age 4 participate in Collide VBS?

What if my child has allergies?
Please indicate their allergies on the registration form.
What time do I drop them off and pick them up?
Drop off is at between 5:45 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. at the location specified on the confirmation card they will receive in the mail one week prior to Collide VBS.
Pick up is promptly at 8:30 pm at the same location as drop off. Please note: We will not allow parents into the building until all children are in their correct pick-up location. This is to ensure the safety of all children.
What if I have to pick up my child up early?
Please check in at the School Lobby Desk, where we will be able to pinpoint your child’s current location. A leader will help your child collect their belongings and escort them to the School Lobby to meet you. Only a designated person indicated on the registration form can pick up your child.
What if my child has an allergy to a snack?
Our team does their best to serve snacks that most children and adults would not be allergic to. Gluten free options will also be available. If your child has more extensive allergies, we suggest you send a snack with him/her.

If I volunteer, do I have to work every night?
Yes, although if you have to miss one night for an emergency, you are expected to let your lead coordinator know.
Do we have security on site during Collide VBS?
Yes, we have a trained security team on site.
What if my child has two friends that they would like to be with?
Due to the large number of children that attend Collide VBS, we can only honor one friend request.
What if my child can’t be there each night?
We understand that sometimes it is hard to make every night. Please just let their small group leader know on Monday night.
