Central Church VBS

Keepers of the Kingdom: Standing Strong in Today’s Battle for Truth

June 26 – June 30 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
2005 East Winchester Blvd, Collierville, TN

What is Vacation Bible School?

We are engaged in an epic battle for the hearts and minds of our youth. Every day, they are bombarded with lies about who they are, who their Creator is, and where their salvation comes from. Thankfully, God has given his children armor to wear in this battle between truth and lies, light and darkness, good and evil.

Kids at this VBS learn how they can be part of God’s kingdom through salvation in his Son and will be equipped with the armor of God to become Keepers of the Kingdom who stand strong in today’s battle for truth.

Here’s a few ways we help teach the value of scripture and have a good time:

Lofty Lessons for Lads and Lasses

During the lesson time, our young squires will learn from wise scholars and unearth the value of scripture.

Games of Gallantry

At this location, our young knights in training will face and overcome physical challenges or have a blast working as teams.

Crafty Creations

Electrifying science experiments to explore, creative crafts to invent, high-energy songs to sing, fun memory verse games to play. After finishing the day’s rotations, everyone heads back to the Assembly for the closing that includes more singing, unveiling our animal pals, contest results, and the greatly anticipated daily drama.

Classrooms of Chivalry

After a full night of sword swinging, book learning, and amazing creations everyone will head back to class to spend time with their awesome teachers and friends.

Why come?

Role Models

Your child will be paired with amazing role models. Not only do they set an example, but they know how to have a ton of fun.

Central Backpack Ministry Event

Fun, Fun, Fun

We’ve got games, crafts, and all types of crazy shenanigans going on! After being at home all summer, we know kids need a way to let their energy out, and we’re prepared to help them go a little crazy (but in a totally safe way).

It's a Parternership

This is more than childcare. We partner with you to give you the resources and tools you need to follow up with your kids and help them understand how to use the Bible as our source of truth in this confusing world.


Have questions? We have answers!

When Is Vacation Bible School this Year?

Central Church’s Keepers of the Kingdom VBS will be held June 26 -30, 2023 from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm.

What age can children attend VBS?

Keepers of the Kingdom VBS is open to children who are 4 years old as of June 1st, 2023 through children entering the 5th grade.

How much does VBS cost?

It’s free! There’s absolutely no cost.

What measures are taken to ensure the safety of our children?

We take the safety of your children very seriously.

All adult volunteers are required to have a cleared background check and complete an online ministry-safe training prior to serving during the week of VBS.

What about my child with allergies?

Your child’s care and well-being is our number one care during their week of VBS. We will not be serving any snacks during our 2 hour program, so allergies should not be an issue.

How will I know which class my child has been assigned to?

We are dividing our classes by school grade. Preschool (4-5), K-1 st, 2nd -3rd, 4th, 5th.  Your child will be in the class of the grade they have just completed.

I'm not a kid, but I want to go! Can I volunteer?

There are many ways adults can help during the week of VBS! The main way is by being a group leader for Preschool – 5 th -grade children. There are other opportunities as well. Please check out our volunteer page for a list of opportunities to help with VBS this year.

To sign up as a volunteer, visit our volunteer registration page.

Can my teenager volunteer for VBS?

Yes! We depend on our youth helpers to make VBS run smoothly each year. Students currently finishing 6th-12th grades can serve as teen volunteers/crew leaders.

In fact, VBS needs the help of your teens! All youth helpers must attend training prior to VBS.

To sign up as a volunteer, visit our volunteer registration page.

I can’t volunteer during the week of VBS, but how else can I help?

You can join our decorations team and help turn our building into a great scene for all our Kids! Please check out our volunteer page for more details.

If I am a volunteer, can my child be placed with me?

We will gladly place you with your child during your volunteer time of VBS! On your registration form, please indicate which child (if you have more than one) you would like to be placed with. Please note, whatever the age/grade of your child, this is where you will be placed. For example, if your child is 4, we will place you as a preschool leader. If your child is 7, we will place you as an elementary leader. If you prefer not to be placed with your child, you have that option as well.

Did we miss a question?

If you have additional questions, please email Pastor Justin with
any other questions you may have.

You’re invited to Central’s VBS!

More than a night away from home, we hope you and your children come away from this week knowing how much God loves you. In a confusing world, we want to provide you with the ability to look to the Bible for truth and joy.
