It's time to register for VBS 2021!
As we've been planning, our team sent out a survey asking for input on what our community was interested in for this summer's VBS. With the need to adapt to changing ministry needs, we thank you so much for taking the time to submit valuable and helpful feedback to us! After going through survey responses, spending time in planning, and much, much prayer... it is now time to launch VBS 2021 registration!
Here are the details...
This year, VBS 2021 will be packed with fun, faith-filled adventures that will encourage participants that God’s greatest treasure isn’t diamonds, gems, or gold - it’s them!
To safely allow space for more participants, Treasured - VBS 2021 will be offered at two sessions each day during the week of July 19 - 23, 2021 in-person at Good Shepherd Church.
- Session 1: Monday - Friday (July 19 - 23) from 9am - 11am
- Session 2: Monday - Friday (July 19 - 23) from 1pm - 3pm
VBS 2021 will be for 4 year-olds (by 9.1.21) through 5th grade (2021-2022 school year). There will be a nursery option and a three-year-old VBS experience available for leaders who are serving full-time with us during the week. You will be able to register your nursery and 3-year-old child on the leader registration form.
This year we will introduce Community Groups to VBS! What will Community Groups look like?
- Our goal is to have VBS participants in Community Groups of 7 - 9 peers with 1 adult leader and 1 student leader.
Participants within a community group will not be socially distant from one another. It is our hope to create community groups based on information provided by families on who you have been in close contact with this past year.
Community groups will share supplies within their group only.
Your child's time in a Large Group setting will consist of approximately 8-10 Community Groups. All Community Groups will be socially distanced from one another.
All VBS participants will wear a mask during the entire time together, and there will be no food throughout the week on-site. Please read Good Shepherd's COVID Updates for the latest information.
We are so excited to host this experience for your child(ren) this upcoming July! If you have any questions about the information listed in this email, please contact the Children's Ministries team. We would be very happy to help you!
