We are so excited to announce that VBS WILL BE HAPPENING this year! With one modification, though. Instead of families bringing their kids to VBS, we’re bringing VBS to the kids.
This summer, during July, we’ll be using a quarantine-friendly VBS called BOLT. With minimal preparation, easy-to-follow instructions, and a video that leads you and your kids step-by-step through each of the 3 days, BOLT is designed for you to perform with your family at home. It’s so simple!
During BOLT, your family will participate in fun games that illustrate what it means to listen to, focus on, and follow Jesus. Depending on your pace, you can expect that each day’s experience will last about an hour and a half. It’s great for kids 5 and up. Even middle and high school kids can enjoy it!
There’s something else we’re really excited about—this could also be an amazing outreach opportunity. If you feel comfortable gathering with more people, you can invite as many neighbors, friends, and family to your house for BOLT as you would like. It’s such an easy and fun way to share the good news of Jesus with our community.
If you feel comfortable gathering with more people, we are asking for host families to register using the online form. We will then match your family with a teacher. This teacher will come to your home each day of your Backyard VBS to handle all the ins and outs . You are free to focus on building relationships with the families gathered at your home. The teacher will bring all the needed supplies and digital curriculum.
Please indicate on the online form if you are willing to be a host family for onl Backyard VBS or if you will be using Bolt for just your immediate family. If you opt for the immediate family option we will provide you with a link to the digital material but we will not match you with a teacher.
Registration deadline is June 19, 2020
