I am so excited to have the privilege of telling you about our Vacation Bible School this summer! It will take place on Monday, June 10th through Thursday, June 13th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. each day. This event is free of charge and intended for children going into 4K through children going into 6th grade (there will be a nursery provided, but only for volunteers who have children that do not fall in said age range). Our theme this year is “Scuba: diving into friendship with God.” We will have the wonderful opportunity to “take kids deep into an amazing undersea adventure where they’ll experience the ever-flowing, never-ending love of God!”  

Registration for this event is now open! All you have to do to sign your little ones up is follow this link and fill out the prompts under “Participant Registration.” Once you submit the form, you should get a confirmation email and be good to go! Please let me know if you run into any issues or if you have any questions/special circumstances you need to discuss.  

However, this event can’t happen without a team of awesome people! That’s you! If you would like to volunteer for this event, you can also follow the link above to do so. Or, you may contact me and let me know what position you would like to serve in. Whether you feel really passionate about a certain role or are willing to serve just about anywhere, please let me know as soon as possible so that we can get everyone plugged in and equipped.   

Speaking of being equipped, you will want to be sure to mark Sunday, May 19th on your calendars. There will be a meeting in the Fellowship Hall at 5:00 p.m. for all V.B.S. volunteers to share a meal with those they will be working with, receive their materials, and hear what their schedules and duties will look like. However, before that meeting, there will be a “Safety First” procedure training at 4:00 p.m. for anyone who has not yet been trained on our church’s new policy regarding the protection of children, youth, and vulnerable adults. That way, you have the option of attending one or both meetings depending on what your needs are. Those only attending the first meeting are welcome to grab a bite to eat before departing. Registration for these meetings will be provided in the coming weeks!   

In the meantime, you can help by telling those in your circle about V.B.S. and inviting them out to join us too! This will be a wonderful opportunity to practice joy through play, deepen relationships with those we know, and to make connections with those we don’t. Let’s dig deep to help make this event all it can be and to show our community the love of God!     

In truth and love, 

Matt Waller
