June 16-20th, 2019 6PM-8:15PM*
This year for VBS we are joining churches across our denomination in partnership with ELCA World Hunger. This year we are focusing on the question that was posed to Jesus, “Who is my neighbor?” We will focus on stories of our neighbors across the globe and in our communities. Join us for music, games, snacks, simulation, crafts, and stories.
*Registration begins at 5:45PM in the narthex. Please enter through the Queen Street/front doors. Gathering will be in the nave.
There are many ways to be involved with VBS here at Grace.
- Consider donating items for our “Grace Bags.” These bags will be kept in the church office so that the staff can hand them out when people come to the office looking for food. We are collecting the following items: granola bars, dried fruit (small bags/boxes), lunch box sized snacks, such as crackers and cookies, water bottles (8 or 16 oz), lip balm, hand sanitizer, baby wipes, gallon bags, toothbrushes, toothpaste, travel toiletries, travel sized laundry detergent, socks, gum and mints. Collection bins will be placed in the narthex and in the chapel.
- Volunteer as a Shepherd
This year we are in need of shepherds. Shepherds are responsible for making sure our students get from one station to the next. They also, help the station leaders if extra hands are needed. If you are interested in shepherding please contact our Assistant Program Director, Angie Smith, 717-397-2748 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Consider donating items for our “Neighbors Without Homes” simulation. We are in need of tarps, laundry baskets, and masking tape. Please contact Angie before dropping these items off at church.
Children ages 4- rising 5th graders are invited to participate as students. We would love for our rising 6th graders to return as volunteers.
Registration forms can be dropped off at the church office or emailed to Angie. If you have any questions please contact Angie,
717-397-2748 or email@example.com .
