VBS 2017 will take place from June 26-30
VBS volunteering is your opportunity to connect with the younger members of our FPC family. You will experience the Bible through music, food, games, drama and science. More importantly, you will see Jesus through the eyes of children and they will experience God's love through your kindness, attention and smile!
Last year, our average elementary small group size was 12 children to 1 adult. This year, our goal is to have smaller groups of 8 children to 1 adult. If you have the kind of job that allows you to take a morning off, or maybe 2, we have a way for you to spend 3 hours immersed in a Bible story with a group of children.
It's also your opportunity to connect with the younger members of our FPC neighborhood. As a blessing to the families of the Nehemiah Center, a long-standing partner of FPC, we inivte the children who attend their summer programming to participate in our VBS. The programming at the Nehemiah Center provides childcare for at-risk children. So as not to burden the families wit this gift, we do not request the Nehemiah Center parents to volunteer. We welcome 100 kids from the Nehemiah Center each summer and hope that we will have plenty of FPC volunteers to host them as they participate and form friendships with the children, youth and adults of FPC.
