Will my child stay with their sibilings?

Children are grouped by age, to ensure age-appropriate activities. Kids play together for the first 30 minutes of VBS to meet friends. If there is any reluctance or resistance, leaders will group children with their siblings.


What are your COVID considerations?

Masks are optional for all staff, volunteers, and guests during any church-sponsored activity for indoor and outdoor areas, unless mandated by federal or local authorities.
