Vacation Bible School 2024 will be held July 8-12

CUMC will host Cokebury's Camp Firelight Vacation Bible School (VBS) July 8-12, 2024 from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM each day. VBS is open to all rising Kindergartners through rising 6th Graders.



The VBS Registration fee for the first two children per family is $45 each. Registration for additional children per family is $40 each. Payment is required at time of registration. The fees are collected to offset the costs of operating the VBS program and include a t-shirt for each participant, all craft and activity supplies, and a snack each day.

If the VBS registration fee poses a financial hardship, scholarships are available by contacting Joy Rangel at jrangel@centreville-umc.org.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Registration Forms and payment must be received by June 7.


NO REFUNDS ISSUED AFTER JUNE 7. The VBS wait list begins June 7 and children will be placed as spots in appropriate age groups are available. During the wait list period, $45 per child will be accepted and returned if a spot does not become available.


EMERGENCY CARE FORM REQUIRED FOR EACH CHILD:  A signed 2024 Children's Emergency Care Form for each child must be on file prior to the beginning of VBS.  A signature of a parent or guardian is required. Please see the attachment below.
