 To Think About:

  • Vacation Bible School is mission designed to reach our community as appointed to us in Matthew 28.
  • Prayerfully consider the areas in which your talents would best be utilized.
  • All placements will be what is most appropriate for this ministry as a whole.
  • Volunteering to serve in VBS is a commitment to support our church body as we "Build Believers Who Reach Others For Christ."

Service Area Descriptions

  1. Teachers: Prepare Bible lessons through study of scripture and guidelines within curriculum and along with activities which support a primary Biblical principle.
  2. Missions: Teach the children about the missionaries we will be supporting both in prayer and with our money. Help them to understand that our response to Jesus is going out to share the Gospel.
  3. Registration: Use your abilities to organize and account for every child, youth and adult involved in VBS. Help during registration to be sure every child finds his or her place on time.
  4. *Publicity: Use your talents in sales and marketing to promote this year’s VBS and to contact area merchants to donate coupons and prizes.
  5. *Decorations: Use your artistic and creative talents to decorate various areas that will be used during VBS. (This work is accomplished during the daytime, in the evenings prior to VBS)
