Good Stuff for Children!

VBS Registration 2021: TO MARS AND BEYOND!

Register for Vacation Bible School at First United Methodist Church, South Bend. Join us for a week of out-of-this-world fun July 26-30! VBS is open to all children age 4 through those having completed 5th grade. Each day includes time for play, art, bible study, a snack, and more.

The suggested fee for VBS is $40 per child, and $30 for each additional child from the same household. However, no family will be turned away for inability to pay. Please let us know at the time of registration if the $40 fee is a burden for your family.

A separate form must be completed for each child.

Vacation Bible School will be a BLAST!

Children having completed grades 6th though 8th grade are invited to register as Junior Counselors using this form. We will have a limited capacity for Junior Counselors.

High Schoolers are invited to apply to be a part of our VBS Staff using our separate Staff Application.

Please contact the Church Office at 574-233-9463 or email Pastor Emily at with any questions.



Be sure to check out Pastor Emily’s weekly children’s time on Instagram and/or Facebook. Your littles will love it!


Our PrayGround is in the works! Stay tuned.


Beginning in outdoor worship on May 2 we will have opportunities in worship for our kids! From activity pages and coloring sheets, to simple activities to keep little ones occupied while parents listen, to our in-person children’s message, we will be planning worship with young ones in mind. Families are always welcome at First Church!


Kids are very welcome in worship!   Read more here.
