VBS Super Hero Kick-off Party!  Sunday July 9, 3:00 – 5:00 PM

Come dressed as your favorite Super Hero as we kick-off our Vacation Bible School.   We will gather on the front lawn for theme related crafts, a giant slide, a cold treat, and more super-powered fun—parents can also complete all VBS registration forms.

Put on your cape, tights, mask, whatever and join us! (Even if you aren’t able to attend VBS you are welcome to join us for the Super Hero Party on July 9.)

How Can I Support VBS?

1. Pray.  Please pray for our VBS students, leaders, teachers, helpers—that they will experience God’s love in a powerful way during VBS.  Please pray for leaders and volunteers to step forward to offer their time and talents  to this important ministry.

2. Tell your friends and neighbors about Vacation Bible School.  Don’t just tell them about it—-offer to bring them!

3.  Make sure your children and grandchildren are registered

4.  Volunteer to help!  We are still in need of loving hands to guide our children through the VBS activities.  We also need help with set-up on Sunday, July 9 and clean-up on Friday, July 14.  To offer your services or find out how you can help please email Amy or just give Amy a call (919-787-4240).

5.  Save the following household items for our VBS craft projects:

  • toilet paper and paper towel tubes
  • small peanut butter jars and/or baby food jars
  • buttons
  • refrigerator magnets (the flat ones with advertising printed on them)
  • cereal boxes

Just drop off your items to the Children’s Ministries Office by June 25.

VBS Prep Fest

Our annual prep-fest will be held two weeks before VBS this year (so we can all relax on July 4).   Youth and adult volunteers prepare craft materials, help decorate for VBS, and have fun while they’re at it.

Join us 9-12 on Tuesday,  9-3 on Wednesday and Thursday.  Lunch will be provided on Wednesday, please bring a sack-lunch for Thursday. We sometimes have child-care for younger children—but please check to see before bringing the little ones with you to Prep Fest.
