Splash Zone VBS at Home
This summer you have an amazing opportunity to disciple your child by engaging them in worship, Bible story, crafts, and family devotions. Life looks different right now, but that does not mean that summer fun has to stop.
We have worked hard to make Splash Zone parent-friendly! We have provided you with a flexible schedule that includes a 30min worship service video, family craft time, and a family mission devotion. Each aspect of VBS at Home is easy to use, gives the opportunity for discussion, and can be done anytime throughout your day. Splash Zone can even be split up into three different times throughout your day!
If you think it can’t get better, it can! This year every child will get a FREE SHIRT! We know you are excited to get started so here are the steps you take to become a Family VBS Pro!
Step 1: Sign up on the church website. You will need to give us contact information, and each of your kids' names, grade, and t-shirt size. If you have a friend that will be joining your family for VBS at Home, simply place them under your family.
Step 2: Pick up your boxes at either campus. From July 5-19, you'll have the opportunity to pick up your VBS box from the church between 9am-4pm Monday-Thursday and then on campus Sundays during worship hours. Each child will receive their own box that includes the craft supplies, a FREE shirt, and all information you will need as a parent to be a successful VBS leader.
Step 3: Read through the parent guide before July 20. Your parent guide will have helpful tips for keeping your child engaged throughout the week, as well as your daily parent resources.
Step 4: Take a deep breath and remember God is in control and has given you a church family to support you in your calling as a parent. You are not alone! We know VBS is not going to look the same for everyone, so adapt VBS to best fit your family. If you need help, your Kids Ministry Team is here for you! You can always reach us through email, text, or phone call.
Can we do VBS if we are on vacation? YES! Splash Zone is created to have a flexible schedule, you can easily add Splash Zone into your family fun!
Can we do VBS on a different week? YES! After July 23 all of our resources will be available to you. Don’t forget to grab your box early though!
How will the Bible Story work? We will start off each day at 9am with a Facebook live worship service. If your family can participate during the morning, there will be interaction with the Kids ministry team in the comments. If you can’t make it at 9am, you will be able to go back and watch the video on Facebook and YouTube. The worship service will be 30min long. Each day will include worship songs, skits, a Bible story, and announcements. We know that kids get wiggly after 5 min, so we have broken our service up with interactive worship songs that will get kids up and moving every few minutes so that they can focus during the Bible story.
What if we want to invite a friend? Please invite friends! If you have a friend that would like to join your family for VBS, you will just need to sign the child up under your family! If you want to invite a neighbor, we will have neighbor boxes available for pick-up.
How much time will this take up in our day? Approximately two hours a day. The schedule includes a 30min worship service, 10min of discussion questions, a 30-60min craft, and a 15min mission devotion.
What if I can’t get my child to sit down and do VBS? We have designed VBS to reach every learning style and to include repetitive content. Your child might not pick up the content through the Bible story, but may pick it up through songs and/or crafts. Be patient and persistent. This one week could have a lasting impact on your child’s walk with the Lord - let that motivate you throughout the week. Always know that your Kids Ministry Team is here for you. Let us help you figure out creative ways to reach your children where they are at!
