On June 16, the VBS wait list begins.  To ensure enough supplies and VBS materials are available, a wait list will be created.  As spots become available, children will be placed in their age appropriate group. Sign up early to avoid the wait list!

VOLUNTEER SUPPORT:  There are many opportunities for youth (rising 7th grade and up) and adults to volunteer. Letters recognizing community service hours are available. There is nursery care and a preschool program for the children of parents who serve throughout the whole week of VBS.  Click HERE to sign-up as a VBS volunteer!

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.
