Summer Events

Vacation Bible School

Summer 2020 Mother of Sorrows 1 PM- 4 PM

Registration details coming soon!

North Castle is hidden in a frozen land. The King’s valiant Knights are on a quest in search of the King’s Armor. But the armor isn’t what they think it is. 

VBS 2020, Knights of the North Castle invites children to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power by exploring how we put on the armor of God. Kids will take on the role of brave Knights and begin their quest each session by opening the King’s Book. 

They’ll explore Old and New Testament stories and discover different pieces of protective armor at work in the lives of familiar bible characters, and explore how that armor works in their own lives as they follow and serve God.
