Palm River Campus VBS

JUly 31 - august 4 ~ 8:30 AM - Noon

Dust off your telescope and discover the incredible mysteries of the final frontier—right from your backyard! Join us for a week of searching the visible to discover the invisible at Galactic Starveyors™. School aged kids will begin each day at the Worship Rally. From the Worship Rally, kids will gather at their Starveyors Clubhouse (Bible Study classroom) where they will explore God’s Word. Each day kids will encounter amazing and wonderful things designed by a Creator who is even bigger than the vastness of His creation, as well as make crafts, play fun games, enjoy tasty snacks, sing cool songs, and learn about missions. Kids will discover that the God who created everything there is - the knowable and the unknowable, the visible and the invisible - wants a relationship with them!

Registration Instructions:

On the first day of VBS, ALL children will go to the front of the Worship Center and receive a Parent Pick-Up card (Children not-preregistered, will register at this time). 4 year olds (Pre K) and 5 year olds (Kindergarten) will be directed to their Bible Study classroom.

1st through 6th graders will be assigned to a group and directed into the Worship Center to join with their group (see Child Placement Chart). After our Worship Rally 1st - 6th graders will go to their Bible Study classes (see Rotation Schedule).

Be sure to list any food allergies when registering your child.  Registration is FREE for all children age 4 (born August 2013 or before) through completed 5th grade. Children younger than 4 (September 2013 or after) may register only if their parent is volunteering for VBS. All volunteers must complete and turn in the attached Confidential Screening Form.

Check-In Instructions:

All children should go to the front of the Worship Center first thing each day. The registration team will let you know your class color on the first day (See Child Placement Chart). 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. Babies – 3 year olds (worker’s kids) will go to their classrooms. 4 year olds (Pre-Kindergarten) and 5 year olds (Kindergarten) will go directly to their Bible Study classrooms. 1st through 6th graders will go to the Worship Center and join their color group.

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 at the child’s classroom (See Directory and Site Map for classroom locations).

Verse for the Week - Colossians 1:15-16 (HCSB)
"He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For everything was created by Him, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him."

Searching the visible...discovering the invisible

Points for the Week:
*The God who created everything wants a relationship with us.
