VBS 2023 - Keepers of the Kingdom

We are engaged in an epic battle for the hearts and minds of our youth. Every day, they’re 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.

Your kids will 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 and stand strong in today’s battle for truth.

Children’s Ministry

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” 

Matthew 19:14

Our Mission

 Training children, through God’s Word, to know and serve the Lord.

At Olive Chapel, we believe children are a gift from God. Our Children’s Ministry partners with families to help lay a strong Biblical foundation. Our goal is to help children experience God’s love and come to know Christ as their Savior. Children are taught Bible truths and stories by Christian teachers in a fun, engaging, age-appropriate learning environment.
