vbs 2018
Shipwrecked

SHIPWRECKED VBS/VBX, where kids (and adults too) learn that Jesus cares about them personally and rescues in life’s toughest situations! Each day will be filled with incredible Bible learning that kids can see, hear, touch, and even taste! Crafts, team building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the activities that help faith flow into real life. Register now to join us for a fun filled island-getaway adventure!

This year we will offer 3 sessions:

Evening (PM)  June 17-21 (S-Th) 6:00-8:30

Morning (AM) June 18-22 (M-F) 9:00-12:00

Afternoon (AF) June 18-22 (M-F) 1:30-4:30

Special Needs classes are available for 4 year olds through young adults at our Evening (PM) Session.

Online registration ends at midnight June 12.

BEFORE YOU REGISTER

VBS Preschool Children

Children must be 4 years old by September 1, 2018 in order to participate in VBS. NOTE: Volunteers may reserve a space and bring their younger aged children with them during the session in which they serve to participate in one of our nursery rooms (Reservations are made during volunteer training).

VBS/VBX for Elementary Children

Our VBS experience is designed for children who have just completed Kindergarten through the third grade.
VBX is an extreme experience for pre-teens that have just completed 4th through 6th grades.

Security Word

When you register your child or children you will be asked to give a “security word” that will be required at pick up each day. You may use the same word for each child in your family. Please share the word with anyone who is allowed to pick up your child.

Friend/Guest Policy

If your child would like to invite a guest, you may request that they be placed in the same classroom/crew. For this request to be considered, the guest must also request your child. We will do our best to accommodate requests, however we cannot guarantee that all requests will be honored. Early registration of both parties is beneficial to meet Friend Requests.
