Vacation Bible School 2018

144.medium
Rolling River Rampage Vacation Bible School, June 25-29, is almost here! What a blessing it is to serve such amazing children. During the year, we have short one-hour snippets to be a part of the faith formation of the children of Grace. During VBS week, we have the unique opportunity to share the gospel for almost 15 hours in one week! This is a fun filled week of Bible stories, crafts, recreation time, music and reflection. This may also be the ONLY week that many children from our community get to come to hear about Jesus. 

Our biggest challenge is, that if we do not have enough volunteers, we will need to cap the registration numbers and turn children away. We do not want to do that. We would rather welcome everyone in and share the gospel of Jesus Christ. We invite you to prayerfully consider serving this year! 

Do not over think it! Do not under think it!  Come and share what God has given you. We are so thankful for all you do already to support the Children’s Faith Formation at Grace. We welcome individuals, adult classes who may want to serve together, small groups, affinity groups, and anyone who has a passion and desire to serve children and have fun while doing it. Please see where we need the support of Grace and friends below. 

Currently, we need the following support: 
    1.   10-12 Nursery childcare volunteers (plan with a friend so you can serve together) 3 per day 
    2.   6 Preschool Teachers (we need 4 commitments as soon as possible)
    3.   6 Elementary teachers (we need 6 commitments as soon as possible) 
    4.   6 Material prep team (some can be done at home) 
    5.    2 Photographer/Videographer (we need memories captured and a 3-5 minute photo presentation created) 

Adults register at www.peopleofgrace.org/vbs-adults 
Apprentices/Teens register at www.peopleofgrace.org/vbs-kids-teens

We also need the following items (clearly labeled) to use as props the week of VBS. We prefer that these items be delivered between June 1 and June 21.
    1.   8- Adult size camp chairs 
    2.   3 - 5 foot and/or 7 foot tall fake trees (like easy to assemble Christmas trees)
