2017: Sensing God’s Work In Your Life
Hearing, seeing, touching, proclaiming His Word of Life!
We want our young people to learn how each of their senses – seeing, touching, hearing, saying, and all their gifts & talents – leads them to love God and serve their neighbor!
Who can come?
If you’ve completed one year of Sunday School, or if you are 4 years old or older, come join us! We’d love to have you! Our cut off age is going into sixth grade. If you are in jr. or senior high school, maybe you’d like to come help. We have all sorts of ways you can help: from organizing games and treats, to assisting the teams of kids as they go the different stations, or helping other leaders with singing, movies, or more! We also need more adult volunteers, so if you’re interested in helping or purchasing supplies, contact the church.
Registering Your Child for VBS
There are three ways you can register.
- When you are at the church, look for Registration sheets on the back table in the Narthex, outside of the sanctuary. Fill out a Registration sheet for your child (or children), and give it to the pastor or put it in the church office.
- Download a Registration sheet right here off our site. Print it and fill it out, and then drop it off at the church. Or, fill it out on your computer and email it as an attachment. Click here for the Registration sheet.
- Perhaps the easiest method is to register online! Click here to go to our VBS Registration page and fill out the proper fields. Click the submit button, and you’re done! Please note, you have to fill out the online registration form once per each child.
What Will My Child Do?
At VBS 2017, kids will learn about how the God who made us to smell, touch, taste, hear, and speak, uses those senses to reveal to us an even better life possibly only through faith in Christ!
Your child will experience different activities in a group of kids that will be sure to become friends. Each group will have some VBS staff and adult volunteers to provide supervision, and all of the activities are designed to be kid-safe with a focus on helping them have a fantastic time as they learn about Jesus!
Each day of the week will focus on a different sense, with Bible stories, games, crafts & activities, songs, and lessons built in. These crazy, fun, activities are designed to help your child have an amazing week learning about our awesome God and His amazing plan for us!
Be sure to join us for a special congregational meal and program at the end of our week!
