As always, we are expecting hundreds of kids to attend VBS, and we will definitely need some extra help. Whether you are a veteran volunteer or you have yet to take part in VBS, we want you here! It is nothing short of the most exciting, crazy, exhausting, yet rewarding week you'll experience all summer.
2021 VBS Changes
To help with volunteer placement, we made an adjustment to the age groups for VBS. This should have very little effect on those serving, and we will evaluate it at the end to decide if we keep it as a permanent change. First, the youngest group will be K4 instead of K3. If you are serving in VBS, we will allow your 3 year olds to join the K4 group; however, that option is not available to the public. Second, the oldest age group will be those entering 6th grade. They will participate in Rocky Railway rather than the teen crusade, and those entering 7th-9th will have a separate event. Last, those entering 10th and above will be serving alongside the adults in VBS! We believe that this will give the Middle School an opportunity to learn at their level while providing the High School with an opportunity to use their gifts.
Over the coming weeks, we will continue to monitor as well as follow CDC recommendations and local guidelines. While we hope and pray that the coronavirus won't have a significant effect on attendance, we are prepared to make adjustments to how we run VBS to ensure the safety of everyone involved. We will communicate those changes to you as soon as we make them, and if those changes affect your ability to serve, then please let us know. We look forward to working with you as we plan for another exciting VBS!
