At Backyard VBS this June, kids will learn that God’s creativity didn’t stop in Genesis. The Master Artist is working to redeem, reclaim, and transform us–His creation–to the design He planned for us.

Kids will see the beautiful truth that they are God’s workmanship as they learn to use their talents to bring glory to Him.
I want my child to participate in a  Park Hills Church Backyard VBS this year!  What do I do?
Children ages 5-12 (ages 3 and 4 are welcome to attend too-with a caregiver) are invited to one of the many Backyard VBS  locations hosted by families throughout the area.
We have two different  weeks to choose from - pick one that works for your family's schedule.
Locations and times are below.  There is no need to pre-register - just show up a few minutes early Monday at the host home location on  to sign-in your children. We will be ready for them!

Why Backyard VBS? 
Backyard VBS provides fun and safe activities that kids love! We will play games, make crafts, meet new friends and more!  All  while getting those creative juices flowing at Spark Studios VBS- where imagination is ignited and creativity is awakened.   Join us to learn that God is the Creator and Designer, that Jesus is King and Redeemer, and that the Holy Spirit is our Helper.

Who teaches Backyard VBS?
This is a dynamic team of our high school and college students who love children.
Teachers and helpers are screened and trained by staff, and volunteer mentors at Park Hills Church and learn how to lead VBSs and teach Bible lessons, games,  crafts, songs, and memory verses.  The teaching team bring the materials, fun and energy  that capture children’s attention, teach them biblical truths and help them understand and respond to the Gospel. Host families are screened and  provide a space and get to interact with the kids and their families right in your neighborhood.
