2018 VBS Registration is OPEN!!!!!!
Our 2018 VBS Created to Care is now open for participants to register! 
Each day we will learn how God has created us to care for things like the environment, animals, friends and family, neighbors, and more! We do this by inviting kids age 3-4th grade to join us for crafts, games, songs, Bible stories, science projects, service and more!
VBS will be June 10th-14th from 4:30-7:30pm with a light meal served
Middle school youth are invited to participate as youth helpers by helping with small groups and stations
High School Youth and Adults are invited to help out as small group leaders, station leaders, kitchen helpers, and more! Please see the sign up in the Fellowship Hall or contact Pastor Megan for more information. 
We are collecting items for Personal Care Kits again – See FAQ 
We are also collecting Empty Oatmeal containers for a decorating project. If you have any they can be dropped off at the church anytime!
Thank you for joining us for VBS!
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 years cause will be coming soon.
How do I register- Registration slips will be at the church and online (registration link above and below).  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.  You can also register by clicking HERE and filling out the online form!
What about my older kids? Middle school youth 5th grade – 8th grade are invited to join us for the week as Jr. Guides!  Jr. Guides 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.  High School youth are invited to be Group leaders and station leaders. These youth work along side adult volunteers to help guide small groups and lead stations.  Both Middle School and High School Youth are a valuable part of VBS!
How can I help We have sign ups for volunteers to help decorate, run stations, set up snacks, clean up, and lead small groups.  Sign up sheets are posted in the Fellowship Hall at St. Andrew’s.  We also often have a need for special props and decorations.  If you have a love of art, decorating, helping prepare crafts, or just want to know how you can be involved, please contact Pastor Megan at the church office.
Items needed for LWR Personal Care Kits
We collect items from Mid May 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
Nail Clippers
Cash donations to help with shipping or buy more items. 
We Made 130 Personal Care Kits Last Year to Help Those Who Have Lost Their Homes Due to Violence and Natural Disasters! 
Our Goal for 2018 is 200 Care Kits!!!!
