Vacation Bible School is a one-week ministry for three year olds (potty-trained) through children entering 4th grade. The kids will sing songs, create and play with gizmos, listen to interactive Bible stories, participate in awesome games, and eat tasty snacks. Kids will discover how Jesus rescues us through life's storms.
Kids going into 5th grade through 8th grade participate in VBS+. These students will spread God's love to local communities through hands-on mission work. VBS+ kids will take a van offsite on Tuesday through Friday to visit local organizations in need.
Parents will pay for their children on the first day of VBS. (Cash or check to "Parkwood Church"). You may mail a check to Parkwood Church ahead of time if you prefer. Include a note telling us your child's name. Please mail the check by July 18th.

To add even more fun to our week, we will have themed days that your child can participate in if he or she would like:
Tuesday - Crazy Sock Day • Wednesday - Crazy Hair Day • Thursday - Tie Dye/Camo Day • Friday - Hat Day
At VBS this year we're going to collect items for Samaritan's Purse's "Operation Christmas Child." The children will have an opportunity to donate toys/items or filled Shoeboxes to be sent to children in need around the world. What a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas in July! More information will be distributed at VBS.
We plan on playing water games on warm days. If you're heading anywhere after VBS, you can bring a change of dry clothes for your possibly wet kids. (We will not have kids change clothes during VBS, but you can use our restrooms after you have picked up your child.)
Preschool children will be grouped together and will participate in age-appropriate activities. Children kindergarten through grade 4 will be grouped based on the number of registrants.
We will provide a list of each day's snack if you have allergy concerns. Feel free to pack your child his or her own snack if you would like. We'll also provide grapes each day as a snack alternative.
We will have a family picnic on the last day of VBS. You can join us for hot dogs after you pick up your child on July 27th. We will distribute RSVP and donation sign-ups for the picnic throughout the week of VBS.
We will take pictures of the children throughout the week. We will give each child a printed picture on the last day of VBS, and we will post pictures on our website so you can see all of the fun that the kids had throughout the week. If you prefer not to have your child photographed, please let Erin Wharton (VBS director) know when you drop off your child on the first day.
