VBS JULY 15-19
JUNE 1- Registration opens to kids 3 years old & potty trained (*to be consistent for all families, children may only participate in VBS once they are 3 years old as well as ENTERING 5th grade, not 6th grade).
VOLUNTEER TO SERVE AT VBS
If Cornerstone is your home church, come join us as we minister to estimating, over 500 children in a memorable & fun way through Vacation Bible School.
All those serving during the week of VBS need to attend one of our Staff Trainings. The two dates to choose from are: Saturday, June 22 OR Saturday July 6, 10am-12:30pm If for any reason you are NOT able to make one of these training dates and stay thru the entire meeting, you must let us know (we will be having a “no-frills” make-up meeting on Monday, 7/8 in the evening *childcare will be available at the make-up training only, if absolutely necessary, but must RSVP by Wed, 7/3– call for time and location.)
CAN’T VOLUNTEER THE WEEK OF VBS? Here are other ways you can be involved:
· Sign up to donate an item or more on our humungous shopping list. Please return item(s) to the VBS Table or Kids Lobby by SUNDAY, July 7 unless list otherwise states another date.
· Come pray with us at the Prayer Walk the Saturday before VBS starts 7/13
· Pray for the team and especially the children that God knows will be attending, BEFORE VBS, DURING VBS & AFTER VBS. We will send out a daily email report from each day so the church family will know how to pray and praise God.
