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.

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.)

  • ADULTS:
    • VBS Adult Lead Teachers and Helpers must be members of Bay Area Church.
