Roar @ HPC! (VBS)


An important note from our Director of Christian Education, Karen Shumaker:

"Thank you so much for your interest in HPC’s VBS! You may have heard about some of the problems with this year’s VBS curriculum, “Roar.” We have identified culturally inappropriate and racist aspects of the curriculum. Our response has been to rewrite some parts of the curriculum and completely replace other parts. We have also contacted the publishing company. The main message of God’s goodness through all of life’s ups and downs remains.

We are looking forward to an amazing week of VBS! Please feel free to talk with me if you have additional questions.”

At Roar, kids will explore God’s goodness and celebrate a ferocious faith that powers them through this wild life. During our fun-filled week together we’ll make friends, sing songs, play games, create crafts, and experience God’s Word.

Vacation Bible School for every age! At HPC, VBS is for 4 yr olds through those completing 5th Grade and grows with your child. We run three separate tracks at VBS, each specifically designed to help kids meet God where they are. 

Contact Karen Shumaker or Carole Mills with any questions.
