2023 VBS

Super fun way to learn about Jesus!!

Good Shepherd's "Stellar" Vacation Bible School (VBS) will be held July 24th-28th, 2023 from 9:00 AM-12:00 PM. You may register here.

The registration fee for VBS is $40 per child, which includes a CD, tshirt, and materials for the week. Please bring cash or checks made out to "Good Shepherd Lutheran Church" to the church or preschool office. You may also use our secure online payment option here.

Please note: we also have full-day summer camp available. If your child is attending summer camp at Good Shepherd during VBS week, you do NOT need to fill out this form. All campers will participate in VBS for the mornings!

We rely on many volunteers to make our VBS a success. If a parent or grandparent volunteers to help at VBS, we will waive your child's registration fee! If you are interested in volunteering, please click here.

If you have any questions, please contact Kelsey Tichenor at or (847)741-7788, ext. 4. Thank you!
