Palm River Campus VBS

JUly 30 - August 3 ~ 8:30 AM - Noon

This vacation Bible School invites your kids to grab their megaphones, lace up their cleats, and tune up their instruments. As they fill up the offensive line, sideline, and drumline, your players, cheerleaders, and band members will realize God has given them His ultimate playbook. He wants them to join His team, train hard, celebrate salvation, and encourage one another. Get in the spirit today with Game On! VBS.



Registration is FREE for all children who will be 5 BEFORE 09/01/18 (entering kindergarten) through completed 6th grade. Children younger than that may register if their parent is volunteering for VBS.

Check-In Instructions:

All children should go to the Welcome Hall first thing each day. The registration team will let you know your class color on the first day. You will receive a color-coordinated name sticker each day and a wristband that you can keep on all week. All children will check in with their leader (by color) each day, then completed Kindergarten through 6th graders will go to the worship center and Pre-K will go to their classrooms.

Pick-Up Instructions:

All parents should receive a Parent Pick-Up card when you drop your child off that will let you know where to pick your child up. You must give the teacher this card in order to receive your child. If someone else will pick up your child, please let the teacher know at drop-off, and give that person your pick up card. If you are not able to get them a pick up card, they will be asked to show ID. Pick-up time is at 12:00 noon each day.

Snack & craft donations:

Check the VBS donation center in the Welcome Hall at the Brandon campus & "B" Building at Palm River campus on Sundays (or the church office during the week) to see what supplies you can donate!
