In light of the significant increases in Covid cases in our community over the last few days, our staff and VBS volunteers have decided to postpone VBS scheduled for next week for our younger elementary aged children. We were expecting about 100 people on campus for VBS with our pre-K through 3rd grade groups, and social distancing at this event would be very difficult, especially for younger children. We believe this decision will help us ensure that we can have a safe and fun VBS for this group on Wednesday nights this fall.
Our 4th and 5th grade VBS groups will still meet next week, but with a much smaller group of children from our church family. If your child has completed 4th or 5th grade, and you would like to sign them up, please call the church office or email to let us know. They will be meeting from 9am-12pm, Monday through Friday, July 20-24. You can drop them off at the Welcome Center on Monday and we will let you know then where you can park to pick them up. We will be checking everyone's temperature each morning during check-in and taking frequent breaks for hand-washing and hand sanitizer. If you have any questions, please let us know.
We are so grateful for the incredible amount of time and effort that has already been done by our Vacation Bible School teachers, decorators, and volunteers. VBS is one of our favorite weeks of the year, and while we are disappointed that most of us will not be able to meet next week, we are excited to see how God works in the lives of our children later this fall as we hold VBS on Wednesday nights.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we seek to protect our children and families and serve our city well.
