Rocky Railway VBS, July 11 thru August 8, 2021

We are going to be offering Vacation Bible School this year! We sorely missed not doing it last year. Given the number of children, teens, and adults (pushes 400) that attend VBS at Friends Church and the projected state orders for social distancing and group sizes, the door is still closed to us holding it onsite. BUT we have hit upon the idea of offering a hybrid VBS this year. What will it look like?

On Sundays, at both the 9:30 & 11:00 service times at Kids Church Live, Miss Tammy and Miss Karen will be teaching the children VBS songs and introduce them to that week’s bible buddy, bible point, and bible story. We will record this live event and post it on the church website with the goal to have it there by the following Monday at noon. The children will be sent home from Kids Church Live with the bible buddy for that week and craft supplies. Along with the weekly live recording, there will be videos of the bible story and the KidVid Cinema story posted on the website. We’ll also provide instructions for the craft and give you a snack idea. These materials will be available for you to use with your child during the week to help embed in their heart the bible point, bible verse and bible story.

If your child isn’t able to attend Kids Church Live at one of the service times, you can stop by the church during the week and pick up their bible buddy and craft instructions. We will gladly provide extra weekly supplies if you find yourself able to host cousins or neighborhood kids in your home or backyard! There is no cost to participate although we will gladly accept donations to offset the cost of the music CDs (one free per family), bible buddies, and craft supplies.
