Beginning Sunday, June 16, parents of registered children can pick up their children’s T-shirts at the Children’s Ministry Entrance.

Anyone picking up a child must be listed on the child’s registration form.

If you need to make changes after the form has been submitted, please email vbs@cornerstonechapel.net.

 

Can I pick up my child early?

Children are involved in many activities and often rotate throughout the building. For this and other security reasons, early pick-ups are discouraged. Please do your best to schedule dental, doctor, and other appointments outside the VBS schedule.

Does my child need to bring a snack?

We provide a daily snack. Please do not bring a snack except for allergy reasons.

 

Is the environment allergy safe?

We try to avoid common allergens when selecting snacks, but we cannot guarantee the selection will be free of all possible allergens.

  • If your child has a food allergy or other dietary medical condition, we must be made aware at the time of registration.
  • You may supply one snack item for your child per day.
  • This snack item will be carried by your child’s coach in his/her daily bag. Please give the item to the coach upon arrival.
  • Please make sure your child understands that they are not to eat anything other than what you have supplied.

Am I able to observe while VBS is in session?
For the safety of all children and volunteers, no one is permitted to remain in the building except approved volunteers with background checks, our Safety Team, and church staff.

 

Is there a dress code?
We ask that children and volunteers wear sneakers, the VBS T-shirt, and modest length shorts.

 

What is the 2024 VBS Mission Project?
We will be collecting items to support local food banks.
