VOLUNTEER FOR VBS
Join the ’Mystery Island’ VBS team! We are so excited to help kids ’track down the one true God’ thru our mystery island themed VBS!
VBS is July 19-23 from 5:30-8:30. Volunteers will be needed from 5:15 (5pm on Monday) until about 8:40.
We have childcare for children 2 and under for our volunteers!
This year's VBS will be for families! Parents of children will be encouraged to stay and participate with their children. Groups will be broken up by family, not age/grade.
We are in need of many willing hearts and helpful hands to love on kids, minister to families, and put on this huge event for our church and community!
There are many different types of volunteer positions needed ~ from group leaders to game helpers, from security to science area helpers. Sign Up! Step In! Make a difference!
