VBS FAQs
 
Who can come- Potty trained children age 3 – 4th grade are able to come and participate in VBS!
 
Does it cost money- NO, VBS at St. Andrew’s is always free.  However, we do happily accept donations of snacks and supplies to make the week happen.  Please be on the look out for more information about how to help out.  We also take an offering throughout VBS that lifts up and supports the mission and ministry of the ELCA.  More information about this year’s cause will be coming soon.
 
How do I register- Registration slips will be at the church and online (registration link above).  You can also register the first day of VBS, but we ask that you do your best to register ahead of time as this helps us to be better prepared for the week.  
 
How can I help? We need small group leaders, kitchen crew, craft leaders, game leaders, story tellers, helpers and behind-the-scene people!  Please check out the above link to learn more about the individual jobs! 
 
What about my older kids?  Middle school youth 5th grade – 8th grade are invited to join us for the week as helpers!  Helpers either help at a station such as crafts or games, or follow a small group and help the leader and children of that group throughout the week.  Youth that are 11th grade and up are invited to be Group leaders and station leaders.  Both Middle School and High School Youth are a valuable part of VBS!  Both middle school and high school youth still need to sign up at the kiosk or at the volunteer link above if they would like to help!
 
 
Items needed for LWR Personal Care Kits
We collect items through the summer until the week of VBS.
Lutheran World Relief is an organization actively sharing God’s love with people during some of the most difficult times in their lives.  The Personal Care Kits that our VBS students help assemble each year go to people who have literally lost everything due to war, violence, and natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes, and tsunamis.  Simple items make all the difference and let these people know they are not forgotten or alone as they recover from disaster.  The following items are needed to make these kits and all donations are welcome:
  • Bath Towels-Light weight dark colored towels are preferred
  • Full Sized bars of soap
  • Toothbrushes – Adult
  • Combs
  • Nail Clippers
  • Cash donations to help with shipping or buy more items.
 
IN 2018, we made close to 100 Personal Care Kits to Help Those Who Have Lost Their Homes Due to Violence and Natural Disasters!  Thank you for your donations to the Care Kits!!!!
