Vacation Bible School (VBS)

Each summer we offer an awesome week of Vacation Bible School! Join us to make new friends, create amazing crafts, play wild games, go on surprising adventures, and sing incredible songs. We can’t wait to see you there!

Who: VBS is open to children ages 3 through 6th grade. Three-year-olds should be 3 by August 1st of the following school year.

When: Monday, June 19th- Thursday, June 22nd

Cost: $15 per child with a $45 maximum per family. Scholarships are available; please contact Pastor Dave or John Holt for details.

Schedule: Dinner (included) starts at 6 pm, and our program runs from 6:30pm to 8:30pm each evening.

What if I am too old for VBS?

The only thing better than being a kid at VBS is BEING AN OVERGROWN KID AT VBS! We invite you to join the fun by volunteering your time for VBS. Volunteers can be any age – grade 7 through adult. The only qualifications are that you must love kids and love to have fun.

We have openings for station leaders, small group leaders (games, storytelling, crafts & science, and service), opening and closing time leaders, dinner servers, decorators, pitch-in-wherever-you-need-me helpers and much more. We need some help before VBS to get ready as well as during the evenings of VBS.

Not sure of the best fit? Call or email Lorel Brown today at 913-251-1490 or She will help you find the best place to have the time of your life this summer while helping our youngest members grow in their faith.

Salem Sunday School

Our amazing volunteer team seeks to provide a caring environment where children can build community and grow in their faith. This year's theme is Love, Pray, Serve.

The Spark Lectionary is a three-year curriculum connected to the Revised Common Lectionary, helping kids get more out of both worship and Sunday school. Every Spark lesson follows a four-part sequence: Gather, Open the Bible, Activate Faith, and Send.

Each week, kids and their leaders gather together to explore their Bibles, enjoy fun activities, pray, and grow in faith.

Salem Sunday School is open to all 3yr-12th grade children and youth.
