As a parent, I love sending my kids to Living Water VBS every year. They value children, and that includes letting kids be kids: having fun, and being themselves. I've never had my children visit a church where they were SO LOVED and KNOWN for who they are. The Living Water community celebrates kids and teaches them about God in fun and engaging ways!

Registration now open!

Our Story

At Living Water CRC, we are a loving cross-cultural community, called to glorify God and raise disciples who actively live the Gospel in the world.

Our desire is that every child feels as amazing and special as they are!
They are made in the Image of God, and they are so loved. Vacation Bible School is a chance to welcome all children to God’s house. Some ways we do this is by welcoming students from a variety of school contexts (public, private, and homeschool), students from a variety of racial and ethnic backgrounds, and students with a variety of abilities and accommodations.
You are welcome here! 

Welcome Home, Child of God!

Meet Adorabilis the octopus! We call her Dora, and we will be following her journey learning about God’s love for us, told with a biblical basis in the parable of the Prodigal Son.

Come to Living Water where all children are included in God’s great big house. We are all God’s children, and God is welcoming us through Jesus’ work on the cross! So we welcome you to Living Water’s 2023 VBS. After all of our learning, crafts, and games, we will have a great big multicultural meal and a water activity on Saturday.
