We can’t have VBS without you!
As most of you know, putting on a successful VBS does not happen without the tireless work of many volunteers. If you would like to help us, we would LOVE that! Please contact Kalenda Adams and let her know what area you might be interested in.
What do VBS volunteers do?

Pack the Tent
One of our projects this year at VBS will be for our kids to bring in lightly used or new books from home to “pack the tent.” The books will be donated to Project Transformation, an organization supported by our United Methodist Conference. Project Transformation creates mini libraries in “book drought” areas. These mini libraries allow local children to borrow books, and take about 1,000 books to start. We hope to collect enough books to send along to Project Transformation for one whole library.
Connections Emergency Shelter
This program accepts youth ages 10 to 17 referred due to runaway behaviors, family conflict, abuse and neglect, or homelessness; this includes youth who are part of the state’s foster care system (Texas Department of Family and Protective Services). The program also accepts youth ages 5-9 who are in the state’s foster care system or are experiencing a family crisis that requires a brief placement.
Connections puts together “comfort bags” for these youth who come into the shelter. They are filled with items the kids can call their own – blanket, toothbrush, sheets, towels, a journal, small flashlight, etc. The bags help ease fears, concerns, and first night jitters as the residents begin their new journeys. All of these items go with them when they leave the shelter.
Our VBS participants will be collecting loose change and bringing in donations that will help to pay for the cost of putting together the bags. Our 4th & 5th graders will put together several bags as a part of our Big Missions group. For more information about this, please contact Kalenda Adams.
