Volunteer

Sign up to donate snacks for VBS.

It takes scores of volunteers to make VBS happen each year. If you’d like to help bring VBS to the hundreds of kids who will come through the doors each day, please let us know. You can register online. Children who are 2 or 3 will be able to participate in the preschool rotation when a family member volunteers!  Professional childcare is also available for children of on-site volunteers.   Register for childcare online.

Save the date for our important volunteer meeting on Sunday, July 9 at 2:00p.m.

If you would prefer, you can print a paper copy of the Servant & Childcare Form and submit it to the church.

Limited afternoon PDO spots during the week of VBS (noon-3:00p.m.) are available on a first come, first serve basis.

For more information about Hero Central VBS 2017, please contact Pastor Jessica Richard, director of Children’s Ministries.
