Registration is OPEN!
Turns your kids into Galactic Starveyors! As kids focus their telescopes on the marvels painted in the sky by the Creator, they will discover the wonder among all wonders—that the God who created everything there is—the knowable and the unknowable, the visible and the invisible—wants a personal relationship with them! Invite your kids into the clubhouse and show them the God who is over the moon in love with them.
Colossians 1:15-16: “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.”
Registration is OPEN!
VBS is for ages 4 to those going into 5th grade. If you’re going into 6th grade or older and would like to volunteer, you must contact Bethany Dattolo, Kids Connect Children’s Director, prior to VBS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Year’s Mission Project
Each year at VBS we have what we call our “mission project”, where we collect items to be donated to people in need; locally or even internationally. This year, we are partnering with Samaritan’s Purse and asking our VBS families to bring in items for shoeboxes that will become part of the Operation Christmas Child (OCC) program. This program brings shoeboxes filled with gifts to children all around the world and for some, it is the only Christmas gift they will receive.
Hope Chapel is a relay center for OCC and will be hosting our own “packing party”, which you are all invited to, in the fall. To gear up for it, we are asking you to bring in items that we can use during the packing party to assemble LOTS of boxes!!!
To make this fun and easy, we have given each day of VBS a “theme.” If you miss one day, no problem! Don’t let that stop you from bringing something in on another day.
MONDAY: stuffed animals (small, such as beanie babies or the like)
TUESDAY: hygiene items
THURSDAY: school supplies
You do NOT have to worry about the age/gender of the person receiving your item(s). That will get figured out when the boxes get assembled. Your items may not all end up in the same box, and other items will be added to them.
