VBS Volunteers

Everything you need to lead well at VBS

Volunteer Information

Registration for VBS Volunteers is now open!

Looking for a fulfilling and meaningful way to invest in the next generation?

Are you hoping to make a deeper connection with other people in your church community?

Do you have some free time that you’re looking to use in a way that honors Jesus?

Look no further than this summer’s Vacation Bible School!  Volunteers like you not only create amazing experiences for our kids and students to learn more about our good God, but we truly could not do it without you! We are looking for both adults and students (7th Grade +) to facilitate VBS.

We are looking for volunteers to assist with various tasks such as decorating, preparing snacks, running outdoor activities, leading small groups, playing with babies, and so much more. Not only will you have the chance to use your talents and skills to the glory of God, but you will also have a chance to form lasting connections with fellow volunteers and children alike.

Partner with us as we dive into Breaker Rock Beach to underscore the beauty and power of God’s rock solid truth in a world of shifting sands. We will equip you to lead our Village Kids and 5/6 students as they discover that God’s truth never changes, everyone needs Jesus, and we can speak God’s truth with love.


Is childcare available for my younger child? Yes! We will have childcare available for nursery-age children, and there will be a special program for 2/3 year-olds. These are offered for volunteers only.

If I volunteer, will I receive a discount on registration for my child who will be participating in VBS? Yes! We offer a $5 discount per child until May 3. Registered volunteers will also receive a discount code for $10 off per child. You will receive a discount code to register your child upon registering as a volunteer.
