HOLY SPIRIT VBS PROGRAM “SHIPWRECKED” OUTLINE

  1. Our entry door with the VBS Sign, and where our mascot sits, will open for your kids at 8:30 each morning. Hopefully by 9:00 am we will all be in the activities center.
  2. Please sign your children in daily on the entrance table sign-up sheets.
  3. On the first day of VBS your child will receive a lanyard with a badge that tells them their Crew group and they will be gathered by the crew leaders.
  4. Children will find their group by looking for a colored sign held up by one of our assistants, matching their group color lanyard badge. We will start the day with morning introductions and announcements, a skit and music activities! Students will then be rotating between teachers to Kid Vid Cinema, Outdoor Activities, Food Craft/Habits of Prayer, and Material Exploration.
  5. A copy of the weekly schedule is available at the registration table. You are welcome to stay and watch the opening group gathering, skit and song before the kids move to various stations and return around 11:30 for our closing songs and penny war.
  6. Please apply sunscreen and bug spray to your children before arriving at VBS. Our outdoor activities will be 20 minutes long.
  7. Please do not send any snacks with your children. We have children with food allergies and we will be providing safe snacks. Do let us know if your child has special dietary needs.
  8. Plenty of water will be given throughout the day and a daily healthy snack will be provided, as well as a sweet snack during Food Craft. Let us know of any allergies and we will plan something special for that child
  9. We will be holding a “Penny War” between Crew groups to raise money for Bridges of Hope on the Island of the Haiti/Dominican Republic where Holy Spirit Missionaries Adam and Jessica Carlile work to help the poor. See details on separate Penny War hand out sheet.
  10. We will hold a potluck on Wednesday for parents/guardians and the kids. There is a sign-up sheet for sides. Hamburgers and hot dogs will be served at the pavilion on the hill behind our church. If the weather is not cooperating (Too hot or wet) we will eat in the activities center.
  11. At 11:25 our groups will gather again in the activities Center for Penny War results, Song and prayer. You are welcome to arrive at this earlier time to watch.
  12. Between 11:45 and 12:00 noon each day, your children can be picked up from the gathering area inside the church. The children will wait in their Crew groups for you to pick them up. They will not be allowed to exit the church building or be picked up in the parking lot. Please sign out your child each day on the entrance table sign in sheet and approach the adult Crew Overseer every-day to pick up your child.

13 We need helpers to take down and clean up after VBS on Friday (Taking down the stage, removing decorations, storing away             materials). We will begin immediately following the Friday closing at noon. Many hands make small work so we appreciate any           help we can get in this.
