IT’S TIME TO REGISTER FOR VBS 2018 – “GAME ON!” VBS is June 11-15, 2018 from 9am-Noon. It’s for kids who are Entering Kindergarten (August 2018) through completed 6th grade (2017-2018 school year). We also provide VBS for Babies – 4 year old children if their parent is serving as a VBS Leader. VBS is 3 hours of learning, singing, dancing, and having fun with friends, while learning about scripture, and what our Great God has done for us through His son, Christ.
This year’s theme: Game ON! Invite your kids to grab their megaphones, lace up their cleats, and tune up their instruments. As they fill up the offensive line, sideline, and drumline, your players, cheerleaders, and band members will realize God has given them His ultimate playbook. He wants them to join His team, train hard, celebrate salvation, and encourage one another. Get in the spirit today with Game On! VBS.
Theme Verse: His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 2 Peter 1:3
VBS Leaders are also needed! We desire to provide a safe space for the 800+ kids we typically have during VBS. It is a huge responsibility and we don’t take it lightly. The BEST way to accomplish this is to have a solid connection with ALL our Leaders. PLEASE MAKE NOTE of our NEW policy for Bay Area Church VBS Leaders (volunteers): (Students, 14 years of age through Adults must complete our Background check.)
- VBS Adult Lead Teachers and Helpers must be members of Bay Area Church
- Adult Leaders in supporting roles are Members of Bay Area Church (or may be consistent Attenders)
- STUDENT HELPERS (7th grade – 12th):
- Student Helpers must be a part of Bay Area Church Student Ministry or Bay Area Christian School. Bay Area StuMin Staff and Bay Area Christian School Principals will provide approval for all student applicants. You may register online through May 31, 2018: www.bayarea.church/vbs.
