Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School 2021

Here in 2021, we are once again in the position of trying to figure out how to adapt our regular VBS program to best serve our families and keep our kids and community safe.

If you are a parent (or grandparent or other caretaker of children) who would have your child/children participate in Vacation Bible School, or you are one of our VBS volunteers, please fill out this survey to help us know what you would like to see in our Summer 2021 Vacation Bible School program.

As always, our VBS program is open to the community and FREE to all families.

 

 

VBS 2020 — VBS TO-GO!

Since we couldn’t safely be together in person, in 2020 we re-created our summer Vacation Bible School program to be picked up to-go and done at home! Each child who registered received a VBS TO-GO box that included stories, crafts, games, outdoor activities, snacks, music, and more–all to experience the fun of a week of VBS with your families. Everything needed was included, down to the crayons, glue, and juice boxes!

The 2020 theme was:  “The Greatest Hits of Jesus”

 

 

Registration for VBS 2021 will be open in May. Check back to this page for more details.

 

Normally, our summer Vacation Bible School programing takes place over one week at the end of July.

Monday through Thursday are days of fun and learning. Daily activities include crafts, music, games, storytime, and other activities. Children are fed supper and a snack/dessert.

Vacation Bible School is open to all children in our wider community (you do not need to be a church member to attend), and it is free for all families. There will be opportunities to donate food or supplies for the week.

Children age 3 years and older are welcome. Youth 6th grade and up are encouraged to come as helpers.

Adult and youth volunteers are needed to serve in a variety of roles, including: help with prep work before VBS; teach in one of the classrooms (the same material will be taught multiple times over the evening); be a family leader (an adult who leads our children from one activity to the next–no lesson plans to prepare); help with game-time activities; work in the kitchen; help in the craft area, assisting children with the day’s project; be a shepherd (circulating among the activities to insure a safe atmosphere); be an actor or puppeteer at opening time or closing worship;  do some car-control at the end of each day so we can have our closing worship on the lawn in front of the crosses.
