VBS – Vacation Bible School
VBS is almost here!!!
June 9 – 13, 2019 ~ 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM
This VBS is open for potty-trained three-year-olds through entering 12th grade and bible study is also available for adults. (Nursery will be provided only for children whose parent or guardian attends the Adult VBS Class or work as a volunteer.)
We need volunteers and would love to hear from anyone interested in volunteering at this year’s VBS. All volunteers must have a background check. If you have not already had a background check at Belmont, please register as a volunteer early to give us time to get one done.
If you are registering more than one child be sure to click the “Add Additional Participant” button, before hitting the Register button. This will allow you to reuse some of the info entered for each child from the first child entered.
Ages: Potty-Trained 3 year old’s through entering 12th grade and an adult class (with child care provided)!
This summer, go on an African adventure with Roar VBS —an exploration of discovery they’ll never forget! Based on five key bible verses that will change a child’s life. Venture into the African savannah where kids survive and thrive. Anchor kids in the truth that Jesus carries them through life’s storms.
Five Bible verses, five biblical truths, five days of discovery and an experience that can last a lifetime: Roar! will bring your kids closer to Jesus, every day. This year’s vacation bible school will begin on Sunday night, and end on Thursday with a parent’s night on the following Sunday. Sunday night through Thursday night will be regular classes.
Additionally, we will continue to have an adult class, and just like the kids, members and visitors alike are invited to attend and there is no cost. So bring your kids and stay for a lesson and a time to fellowship with other adults in their walk.
While supplies last, we will have themed T-shirts available for purchase for $10 before and after VBS each night. They may also be purchased from the church office in advance of VBS. Please call 813-988-1501 for more information.
Please dress comfortably and appropriately for the activities. Jeans or shorts, T-shirts, and sneakers are probably most common. Flip Flops are discouraged for safety reasons.
The first night especially, please escort ALL students to the registration area for check in. All students must check in at the registration table EVERY NIGHT.
To ensure the safety and security of all of our adventurers, we ask that you follow our pick up procedures.
Pre-School children must be picked up BY AN ADULT in the children’s area. Follow the signs for “Pre-School / Little Paws” or ask any member of our team and we will be happy to help you find your way.
All Elementary students must remain in the sanctuary until called by our team leader. Please let the registration table know who you are picking up and we will call them for you.
Monday-Thursday students are encouraged to participate in themed dress-up nights if they wish, but it is OPTIONAL.
Monday – Crazy Hat / Crazy Hair
Tuesday – Wacky/Tacky SOCK Day! The crazier and more mis-matched the better!
Wednesday – Hero Day – Dress like your favorite hero (super or not!)
Thursday – Safari Day – Dress like you’re going on a safari or maybe as one of the animals you’d see in the Savannah!
Please call the church office at 813-988-1501 or e-mail the VBS director at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any question, comments, concerns, or need additional information.
