Vacation Bible School 2020
Safe Sanctuary Policy
Mountain View United Methodist Church as a church has adopted the Safe Sanctuary Policies for all Children and Youth Ministries of the church. These policies call for the promotion and maintenance of a physically and emotionally safe environment to nurture and support our children and adult leaders. Each leader is trained, screened and routinely evaluated on our procedures in order to protect and reflect our congregations commitment in preserving this church as a holy place of safety and protection for all who enter, and worship in this place. This allows all to experience the love of God through relationships with others and be a safe haven free of sexual misconduct, harassment or inappropriate interactions.
North Castle is hidden in a frozen land. The King’s valiant Knights are on a quest in search of the King’s Armor. But the armor isn’t what they think it is.
Cokesbury’s VBS 2020, Knights of North Castle: Quest for the King’s Armor, invites children to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of God’s power by exploring how we put on the armor of God. Kids will take on the role of brave Knights and begin their quest each session by opening the King’s Book. They’ll explore Old and New Testament stories and discover different pieces of protective armor—the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Justice, the Shoes of Peace, the Shield of Faith, and the Helmet of Salvation—at work in the lives of familiar Bible characters, and explore how that armor works in their own lives as they follow and serve God.
Help kids take up the gauntlet this summer and accept the challenge to “armor up” and be strong by remaining with God and sharing God’s love in a world that needs it more than ever.
