Registration is now open for Dwell’s VBS--Vacation Bible School--sharing the love of God with kids preschool through 3rd grade. The format will be modified a bit to accommodate COVID safety, but the focus remains on helping children understand God’s grace and love through crafts, activities, music, and teachings.
This year’s VBS will be June 21st-25th, from 9:00-11:30 am each day, and will be primarily outside. Claire Howard with VBS says the emphasis is on fun with a purpose--kids leave the week feeling excited about both what they learned about God and what they can continue to learn. “I think this year especially is important for these young kids to see how many other kids are excited to learn about God in this city. Especially since many haven't interacted with others for some time.”
One of the best things about VBS is how welcoming it is to kids who don’t know about God’s grace--please consider if there’s a guest you might invite. VBS's Anne Trader says it’s a unique opportunity to invite family, friends, and neighbors to hear the gospel and see the amazing blessing of fellowship God has given us through the church.
A few notes about this year: there will be no drama, but there will be a music team, sharing songs that kids (and parents) will be singing long after VBS. There won’t be a nursery this year, so if you’re volunteering and need childcare, you’ll need to make other arrangements. And at this point the plan is for kids and volunteers to wear masks while together.
VBS needs volunteers to help make the week a success--classroom teachers and people to serve on the craft, music, and game teams. You can sign up at this link.
Please be praying for VBS, that it would fulfill its mission to help children better understand how much God loves them, and has a plan for their lives. Consider volunteering for the week. And think if there are any kids God would have you invite.
