The EBC VBS Team would like you to join us in searching the visible and discovering the invisible!

VBS is for everyone entering Kindergarten through 6th grade.

We welcome everyone from all backgrounds, whether they have gone to VBS several times before or if this is their first adventure. If you are entering 7th grade or older, consider volunteering! We would love to have you join the VBS Team! Middle School, High School, College students and adults. The program is indeed intended for earthlings, but exceptions can be made for martians and any other extraterrestrials.

What do we do?

We do so much at VBS!

We learn about how we can submerge ourselves in God’s word and bubble up to the surface each day of our lives. We sing songs, do silly dances, listen to adventure stories, and have lots of fun outdoors playing games. We make crafts and help pack materials that will provide important care for children and families around the world. We have snack time to recharge, and then it’s back to having fun while learning how to see ourselves as Jesus sees us.

When is VBS?

VBS is Monday, July 17th – Friday, July 21st!

We can’t wait for the summer! VBS starts Monday, July 17th and ends on Friday, July 21st. Each day, drop off is at 8:45 AM, and pick up is at 12:00 PM. VBS Parents Night is on Friday at 6:30 PM. After a brief program there will be out of this world treats and time for you to meet your children’s group leaders.

Where is VBS?

VBS takes place on the Planet Earth at Emmanuel Baptist Church of Norfolk.

We love opening up the church for the whole community to enjoy. VBS is one of our favorite weeks of the year!

Why VBS?

VBS is truly special!

We absolutely love VBS! It provides a way for children of all ages to have good clean fun, and build relationships with each other and with God. We laugh and play while learning about our God who made us all and loves us deeply. VBS only lasts one week, but all who attend will make memories and learn lessons that last longer than a lifetime. It is the VBS Team’s hope and prayer that everyone one who joins us on this summer adventure is changed in the best possible way.

How much does VBS cost?


There is absolutely no cost to attend VBS at EBC Norfolk. We do take donations throughout the week for other needs around the globe, but these donations are completely voluntary. If families would like, they can donate pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and dollars as each day progresses. On the first day, bring your pennies to donate! Also, if families would like, they can purchase a Music CD for $5.00. We truly want VBS to be joyful week experienced by as many people as possible!

It is such a joy to volunteer with VBS, we receive more than we give. There is something so very special when everyone works together and experiences the VBS week. We experience great joy when we serve others out of love for God. We can’t wait!
