Welcome to Jerusalem Marketplace, Pines Chapel’s Vacation Bible School for 2022!


Pines Chapel’s Vacation Bible School took place the week of June 20 – 24, 2022, with 16 children of all ages, and about 16 adults! Everyone had a great time with the children learning about how Jesus would have lived in Biblical times, his ministry and traveled through time from Palm Sunday to Jesus’s Resurrection. 

Students were divided by age into 3 tribes: Dan (for the youngest ages), Simeon (for those from Grade 2-4) and Benjamin (for those Grade 5 and up). The students had a Tribe Time, where they learned about Jesus and learned bible verses; then they moved on to the Marketplace where they did crafts; then went to Synagogue School to learn about traditions and even did some Hebrew writing; and, finally to Music where they learned different songs. They even had a meal time when they came to prepare them for all the learning they would do!
