Dear VBS Parents,

We look forward to seeing our registered participants soon! Here are a few things you need to know…

Drop-Off Procedure (no earlier than 8:45 am):

  • VBS begins each morning at 9 am in the gym (located at the back of the church).
  • Monday – please walk in with your child and check in at the registration table. This is very important so we can make sure we have all the information we need.
  • Tuesday-Thursday – you may walk your child inside or use the drop-off driveway between the gym and the education building. The entrance is located off Southland Ave between Cleveland St. and the back parking lot. Follow the driveway around the corner and down the hill.

Pick-Up Procedure (noon):

  • Monday-Wednesday – You may come inside to pick up your child (please check out with child’s teacher), or you may use the drop-off driveway, and we will bring your child out to your car.
  • Thursday – you are invited to the gym at 11:20 am for a brief program and picnic lunch. Bring a blanket or beach towel to sit on! We hope you all can join us.


You will receive a release of liability/permission to participate form in the mail. This form must be returned by the start of Vacation Bible School on Monday morning, July 17, in order for your child to attend. You may bring it on Sunday if you are participating in water day.

You will also receive an RSVP form for Thursday’s lunch. Please return on Monday, July 17, so that we can have an accurate head count.

We are looking forward to a great week!
