A 2021 Guide to Vacation Bible School in Dallas

9

School is almost out, and we’re looking ahead for things to do with the kiddos. How about some wholesome VBS? This guide will help you find a Vacation Bible School in Dallas that works for your schedule. Register now to reserve your spot before they fill up.

Capacity is limited this year, and you’ll notice a few churches haven’t posted their VBS details yet (surely because they are figuring out safety measures). We’ve decided to go ahead and publish the guide because many are accepting registration as of May 1. We’ll update any missing information as it becomes available!
