VBS 2019 has concluded! Stay tuned here for updates regarding the 2020 program.
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?
We have many jobs available, for those who can be here for the week of VBS, and those who are only available for nights and weekends. Some of the things we need help with are:
- Set decoration & design
- Crafts station prep
- Room decorations
- Crew Leaders
- Science Station helpers
- Games & Snack helpers
We have several VBS Work Days coming up. Please join us if you can, no need to RSVP, just come and we will have a list of tasks that need to be worked on. Childcare is available. Here are the work days:

Thank you for supporting VBS for children of this church & community!
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.
