Vacation Bible School

Friends… we’re excited for Bethel’s 2022 In-Person VBS! VBS will be Monday, June 20 – Thursday, June 23 from 9am-12noon for 5-12 year olds! And, you are all invited to a FAMILY NIGHT at Bethel on Thursday, June 23. Please email us at for more information.

At VBS, we aim to help kids experience the life-changing love of God through Jesus! 

Bethel’s VBS is full and we have closed registration for now. Please call the church office at 630-968-3232 or email us at to let us know if you’d like us to contact you if spots open up.

We’ve had an overwhelming response – we’re super blessed to have all these kiddos, but want to make sure each child has a great experience and is well cared for. Thank you!

Bethel’s vibrant VBS Team is filled with young people (who are going into 8th grade and older)! Please fill out the VBS Team form if you are interested in being on the VBS team.

Bethel’s VBS is always free because of the generosity of folks from the church and community, for which we are incredibly grateful!
