Nursery and Assembly VBS “Wonder Why” for Children
Provided for those attending Assembly and Conventions
*Please Register each child so we can prepare well for your children.  Thank you.

Have you ever heard a kid say, “I wonder why …?” In our children’s activities for District Assembly, we will be tackling some of the common questions kids have about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and more! We want kids to live in wonder about their awesome God, seeking answers to their questions, standing in awe of how great He is, and having faith for the answers they don’t yet have. Kids from 4 years old through the 6th grade will have a blast as they say, “I wonder why … ?”
