Welcome to Stellar VBS (Vacation Bible School) —the summer event that helps kids discover what it means to shine Jesus’ light! At Stellar VBS, kids explore how Jesus shined hope, love, forgiveness, and joy to the world—and how we can do the same with his power!
You can expect a week full of faith discoveries, memorable music, and epic adventures that help kids grow in friendship with Jesus !
Beacon’s Stellar VBS will be taking place the week of June 26-30th. Registrations and Volunteer Sign ups will start this Spring! This event is FREE.

Underwear Drive – Undergarments are one of the most basic needs we all have and yet they are the most under donated items to people in need.
Beacon’s Compassion Ministry just finished hosting an Underwear Drive for the most vulnerable in the community. We collected NEW womens’ sports bras, briefs, and socks and mens’ boxer briefs, undershirts, and socks. Each donation included a message of God’s Love and Hope.
For questions about this drive reach out to [email protected]
Alpha Course- Interested in exploring the meaning of life? The Alpha Course is a worldwide phenomenon! It’s found in over 160 countries. It’s run in tens of thousands of schools, prisons, homes and churches of all denominations. Beacon runs an 8 session Alpha course several times a year. Each session includes a shared meal, a video teaching, and discussion time.

Youth Mission Trips – Dozens of local youth have signed up to partake in upcoming mission trips this summer! They will be traveling to Oswego, Lynch KY and Mexico. Youth will assist with construction projects on camp properties that will provide more opportunities for growth and support to the community. These kids will get your hands dirty and work hard! They will dedicate their time to an area where jobs are hard to find, programs for children are scarce, and where families are in great need of support and love. Teams will have the opportunity to assist with various home repair projects, participate in the preparation and delivery of meals to families in need in the neighborhood.
Check out the Beacon Website for a list of youth activities including snow camp, minigolf, paintball and many more!
