star voyager

JUNE 20 - 23  |  6:00 - 7:30 PM

This summer, rising 1st through rising 6th graders will blast off on an unforgettable voyage at Portsmouth City Park. We will traverse the galaxy in our spaceship, the Star Voyager (the pavilion), on a mission of exploration. On this expedition through outer space, we will learn our true identities as we discover exactly who God says we are. Kids will gather safely for an exciting time of music, skits, crafts, games and more June 20-23 from 6-7:30. So grab your  friends and join our crew for VBS (Very Best Summer)!

Check out all the fun we had last year at City Park.

what happens at vbs?

Never been to VBS?  No worries, here's the skinny about what happens each night.


All images below show actual participants & items from VBS 2021. They are not fictional. In fact, these people made new friends, learned more about Jesus, ate some fantastic snacks, and pretty much had an awesome time.

This could be you next year.


    Each child will be assigned to one of five different teams each night. They will stay with their team and work together throughout the event.

  • worship

    Our high-energy songs will get kids up on their feet and worshiping Jesus.  Each song is packed with Bible truths that will stick with your child all summer. Here's a playlist of songs from last VBS. 



    The skit team brings each night's Bible concept to life before our eyes.  They help set the stage for each night's lesson and show how it applies to real life. The skits are a popular favorite among the kids. 

  • games

    Kids love games, period.  Need we say anymore?  

  • crafts

    Our space inspired crafts are bursting with creativity!  Each craft is kid-tested and connects to the Bible lessons learned during the week at VBS.

  • snacks

    There's a lot of activity packed into the 1.5 hours of VBS so we have awesome, themed snacks each night to help keep our energy up.  If your child has an allergy, please make sure to mention it on their registration form.

  • OMC

    Shh, don't tell anyone, but we kind of save the best for last. Thursday, June 23 we will play a huge game of OMC, or Organized Mass Chaos, at Portsmouth City Park. It involves water balloons, toilet paper and whole lot of fun. You'll want to come back out to enjoy the craziness and take lots of pictures. Remember to tag Central on Facebook so we can all enjoy the one of your kid covering their team captain with shaving cream.
