Vacation Bible School 2017


First & Second Congregational Churches of Westfield held our annualjoint Vacation Bible School program in July.   Our VBS is an important part of our community outreach.  The program ran from Monday-Thursday from 9-12:00pm, with a presentation for families on Thursday evening at 6:30-7:30PM.

This year’s theme was Hero Central. We took kids on awesome adventures alongside some of their favorite Bible heroes and discovered the qualities that make us truly heroic to God. VBS Hero Central used epic music, spectacular science, crafty crafts, heroic recreation, and fantastic Bible stories to help kids (and leaders) discover their strength in God!   We were excited to see so many children encouraged to come have fun in a safe, Jesus centered environment.

The program was led by Jen Thielen, Church School Director at Second Congregational Church and this year was held at Second Congregational Church.  She was supported by a staff of volunteers.  All staff and volunteers received “Safe Church” training (provided by our church) and passed a CORI check.  Second Congregational Church is at 487 Western Ave., right in front of Westfield State University.

There’s always a need for volunteers, so if you are interested in helping out  — please email
