Kingdom Rock VBS

If you see a castle, fair maidens, squires, and a king you might be at Kingdom Rock! Original scripts, amazing stage designs and a flying dragon made Northside's Kingdom Rock VBS one-of-a kind!



The castle in the Kingdom. It was constructed mostly of Cordalite. The silver bands around the turret, the red bands at the base of the red peaks, and the red framing around the windows are pool noodles.

The message of salvation is always presented on the fourth night.  The cross rose over Kingdom Rock. In the foreground you can see golden crowns that were laid at the foot of the cross.

The Kingdom Rock where the dragon lives. The dragon was scaring the villagers so they hired a dragon tamer . It turns out that dragon wasn't scary at all, he was just shy! Once the dragon tamer convinced the dragon that the villagers were friendly and kind, he came out to see everyone. He could even fly (because he was attached to a cherry picker lift)!

Each night a Bible character was introduced. They made a grand entrance to music and a procession through the crowd. Each one had a sign pole that was placed on the stage as they arrived.

"Family Signs" were posted prominently so the kids could find their group.

The kids could write out something that they were thankful for. As the week went on they were added to a "stone wall." We could visibly see the wall rise around the castle as each day progressed.

Each class had a "Family Sign" so that they could easily find their group.



On the last night the kids made luminaries in their Craft time.  As they left they discovered that their luminaries had been placed around the cross. It was just beautiful!

Brittany's Garden-themed Wedding

A multi-purpose room was turned into a garden-themed wedding. The pop of yellow and blue against white picket fences and pergolas, sprays of greenery, twinkling lights, along with the stage elements gave you the illusion of being in a spring garden.























Hallee & Zach's Elegant Rustic Wedding

Burlap and lace was the theme for this simple, elegant rustic wedding. The ceremony was held in a high-ceiling atrium. The bride descended a stairway lined with greenery, berries and twigs and met her groom in front of a rustic pergola. The centerpieces of candles trimmed with burlap and lace were set on top of a log cross-section, then accented with acorns. The couple danced in front of a beautiful LED light curtain.
