Vacation Bible School: If you are looking for a special, meaningful summer activity for your children, each summer The Island Chapel holds Vacation Bible School (VBS).  This year VBS is for ages 4-13 with a special Xtreme VBX for teens.  Watch for 2020 dates!

The focus of VBS is to teach the basics about God through fun activities, crafts, games and music. Each year there is a special theme for Vacation Bible School.




Easter Egg Hunt – Held at Tierra Verde Ballpark, the Saturday morning before Easter Sunday, this free event is open to children up to age 12, filled with games, crafts, face-painting, the Easter Egg Hunt and – of, course, a visit with the Easter Bunny! The “Hunt” is the main event and is split into age groups so all children are sure to find colorful eggs full of candy, some with special prizes!

Fall Harvest Festival - A great alternative to Halloween, this is a fun-filled, afternoon family event with balloons, hay ride, face painting, games, crafts, food, treats, visits with our local fire department and tour of the fire truck. For kids of all ages.

Children’s Christmas Party with The Next Stepp Families The Island Chapel held the first annual Children’s Christmas Party with the Next Stepp families in 2013. The children of The Island Chapel and the children from The Next Stepp Center shared games, crafts, singing, fun, food and fellowship. Each Next Stepp family member received a bundle of Christmas gifts to bring home to open on Christmas morning and a large food basket.

Holiday & Special Music Programs – The Music Director works with the children to develop special children’s music programs. During Christmas, Easter and Vacation Bible School the children perform during church services.
