VBS 2018 is fast approaching at First Church! We hope your summer calendar includes this event on Sunday, July 22 – Thursday, July 26 from 6:00 – 8:30, with the preschool children having the option of leaving at 8:05 and dinner available for the volunteers at 5:15.
Pre-registration is not required, but it really does help us in our planning! If you have any children planning to attend who are 3-years old through those who have completed 5th grade, please register online at vbspro.events /p/decaturuccOR pick up a registration form on the bulletin board across from the church office or in fellowship hall, complete and return it to us as soon as possible.
Our theme is SHiPWRECKED – RESCUED BY JESUS. We will meet Hope, Beacon, Rae, Guac and Moe as they help us with our daily Bible Point, Key Bible Verse and Bible Story. We will have a week full of amazing adventures that will help kids (and adults) begin or deepen their faith by discovering that Jesus cares about them personally and rescues in life’s toughest circumstances.
This year's mission project is different from the last few years. VBS is supporting the Children's, Youth and Outreach ministries as they team up to help with disaster relief in this country and around the world. VBS will be collecting items and/or funds for 50 School Kits and 50 Hygiene Kits as a part of Church World Service's disaster relief.
We still need leaders for: A couple of Adult helpers for Preschool Tide Pool would be wonderful! We also need help with set-up and take-down of the main set. Please let us know right away if you will help.
Supply lists will be on the bulletin boards, in case you would like to help us out in this way.
