Vacation Bible School

WHEN: July 16 – 20, 2018; 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM

WHO: Children rising into Kindergarten through 6th Grade

WHAT: make new friends, have fun, and learn about Jesus during this 5-day summer camp / Vacation Bible School program. PLUS, the students support a mission project for the week and hold a food drive to refill the shelves at the Western Fairfax Christian Ministries food bank.

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.

Reminder:  In addition to the online registration, each child needs to have a parent of guardian complete and sign the 2018 Child Emergency Care Form (pdf).  Please note that a new Emergency Care Form needs to be completed for each child every calendar year.  Forms may be mailed or delivered to the church office, attention Diane Beatley.

 

VOLUNTEER SUPPORT:  Many thanks to the numerous youth and adults who have already volunteered to serve.  We are no longer accepting volunteer applications.

Reminder: In addition to the online registration, each youth volunteer needs to have a parent or guardian complete and sign the Youth Emergency Care Form-2018 (pdf).  Adult volunteers are also asked to complete an Adult Emergency Care Form (pdf). Please note that new Emergency Care Forms are needed each calendar year.  Forms may be mailed or delivered to the church office, attention of Diane Beatley.

HOW IT WORKS: The VBS experience for children rising into Grades K – 5, begins and ends each day with a general assembly in the sanctuary where parents will sign the students in and out with their small group leader. Each small group is assigned a color and a mascot — look for the balloons and colored signs.  Following the opening assembly, students will rotate through stations by color group.  The stations include: science, interactive Bible story, crafts, music, and outdoor recreation followed by snack.

Rising 6th graders will participate in the opening assembly most days and then work on special mission projects, including a trip to the WFCM food pantry.  The preschool children (aged 2- 5) will have their own smaller-scale version of VBS with their peers.  Nursery care and the preschool program are reserved for children of volunteers.
