To join the race, please register to attend VBS at Bethel. Children ages 4 to 12 are welcome. The race starts July 15 and runs through July 19. Winning a race takes perseverance and motivation. Our vision is to encourage your children to faithfully run the race set before them.


Racers should arrive at 8:45 a.m. each morning to see the daily skits. Children will look in on Terry Turtle and Rocky Rabbit as they run the Race and learn what it takes to follow the one way.

In Bible lessons, they will learn that everyone needs God and the way to God is in the Person of Jesus Christ—the truth Christ taught, the life he gives, the sacrifice he made, and the promise he gave by sending the Holy Spirit.

A snack and outdoor recreation will help them on their way.


The race starts with registration! Show up each day to check your children in at the start line. If you arrive before 8:45 a.m., your children may play briefly on the playground before they’re called inside.

The children will be excited to show you and their friends all they have learned during the week. We will have a closing program  at 7 p.m. Friday so we can celebrate the highlights of Vacation Bible School!
