VACATION BIBLE CAMP 2023
June 12th – 15th • Registration closes June 6th • fmcm.org/vbc
REGISTER NOW for our READY, SET, MOVE! 2023 VBC! We offer two sessions to join us along with Special Needs classes; the Morning session is from 9am-12pm and our Evening session is from 6pm-8pm. We are excited to help your children move forward in their own journey of faith as we focus on how we can follow Jesus HERE, THERE and EVERYWHERE at READY, SET, MOVE! Vacation Bible Camp on June 12th-15th. VBC is for ALL children who will have completed PreK-4th grade during the 2022-2023 school year. We follow the MISD guidelines, so to be in the PreK class your child would have needed to turn 4 by September 1st, 2022. We also offer WEE VBC for volunteers’ children who are 1 year of age through children who turned 4 years old after September 1, 2022. You have to register and be an active VBC volunteer for your children to be in WEE VBC.
Our Included Special Needs Ministry is offering a VBC experience during the evening session for Kindergarten and older. Spaces are limited to ensure the safety of our participants and overall quality experience, so register quickly. Inclusion is offered at both the morning and evening sessions for Pre-K through 4th grade. To register, use the main Participant Registration links.
All 6th graders through ADULTS (for the ’22-23 school year), WE NEED YOU to be READY, SET, and MOVE with us as we guide the children to FOLLOW JESUS HERE, THERE, and EVERYWHERE! We can not put on VBC without the help of all our amazing volunteers like YOU!

Throughout the week, there will be amazing opportunities for worship, prayer, fun activities, great food, and most importantly of all, experiencing the presence of Jesus together as we serve others. Every night, after a hard day’s work & a much needed shower at their teams assigned shower houses, you will get to hear from gifted and talented worship leaders, speakers, and spend time bonding with your teammates.
Registration is now open and will close on June 18th.

MANSFIELD SUMMER STRINGS CAMP
June 19th – 23rd • 9:00 am – 3:00 pm • First Methodist Mansfield
We are excited to welcome you to the second year of the Mansfield Summer Strings Camp! This has been a dream for many years, and with the partnership between the Arts Institute of Mansfield, Mansfield Philharmonic, and teachers in Mansfield ISD we are excited to finally see it come to fruition! With the continued growth of the strings program in Mansfield, we wanted a place where all students currently studying a string instrument (Violin, Viola, Cello and Bass) could come to have an opportunity to work with and learn from quality instructional faculty from around the Mansfield area. It is our desire that each student grow musically and personally while at the same time enjoy all the fun, fellowship and excitement of camp.
