July 17-21, 2017
REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.
OUR VBS IS LIMITED TO THE FIRST 200 PARTICIPANTS.
About "Maker's Fun Factory" VBS- Imagine a world where curious kids become hands-on inventors who discover they're lovingly crafted by God. "Maker Fun Factory" will spark creativity with interactive stations, games, snacks, crafts, and experiences. Our kids will explore how they are hand-crafted by God to fulfill His purpose. They will also learn how to serve God by serving others (we incorporate service projects into our VBS).
Open to all kids ages 3 years (potty trained)-5th grade.
Suggested Donation Fee: $10 per child (max $40 per family).
Fees for children of adult volunteers are $5/child.
*PRE-CHECK-IN IS AVAILABLE: Starting the Wednesday prior to the start of VBS, July 12th, you may pre-check in your child to receive their group name, t-shirt, and music CD. However, you are also welcome to check-in on the first day of VBS. Monday we will begin checking in students at 8:45 AM out front of our Fellowship Hall and Sanctuary. At check-in you will receive your child’s t-shirt/CD, and group name. Your child’s group leader will be inside the sanctuary waiting for your student.
Drop-off: We ask that each morning you walk your child into our Sanctuary and make sure they are seated with their group leaders.
How will PICK-UP work for your VBS inventor? Upon our closing ceremony each day at 12:15 PM, your child’s group will be walked out into our blocked off parking lot (where check-in occurs Monday) and will wait in a line with their leader for you to come and sign them out. Only designated people may sign out and pick up your child.
Students are encouraged to wear their VBS shirt throughout the week. We invite all families and inventors back on Sunday, July 23rd, (to any of our 3 worship services) for our Closing Celebration where inventors will lead us in praise and worship (singing VBS songs). Come back and join us- inventors will receive a special surprise.
SUMMER MISSION PROJECTS FOR KIDS:
This VBS, partner with us, as we support two wonderful ministries.
1- local: RACAP (Randolph Area Christian Assistance Program)
2- around the world: Rice Bowls
LOCAL: RACAP - During the month of July, especially the week of VBS, Bracken UMC and our children will be collecting toothbrushes and toothpaste for local families that benefit from the ministries of RACAP. Help families of our community have a great start to the new school year. Donations are welcome.
AROUND THE WORLD: Rice Bowls is a ministry that partners with christian orphanages and children's' homes around the world to provide them with the finances they need to buy local foods to feed hungry children. We are eager to join with them, as we "save change to make a change!" To participate in Rice Bowls, each child is welcome to obtain a free Rice Bowl that will serve as their "piggy bank" during their collecting time. On the morning of Friday, July 21st, before the start of VBS (8:45 AM) all children will be asked to help "Smash Hunger" by breaking open their Rice Bowl and offering their donations towards our combined giving.
