What is the cost?
The cost is $30 per child. Space permitting, late registration takes place from June 15–July 4, and the cost increases to $50 per child during that time. A t-shirt and CD will be included. Please note, t-shirt size requests will only be available while supplies last. Register early.
Can I register my child at any time?
Online registration is available through July 4, as space allows. Late registration begins June 15 and the fee increases to $50. Space is limited, so sign up early!
Can my child be placed in the same group as his/her friend?
We will do our best to honor special requests only if BOTH parties make the request at the time of registration and BOTH children are in the same grade. Requests are not guaranteed. We will not be able to accommodate any special requests after June 14.
How will I know what team my child is on?
Children are placed by the grade they just completed. Their individual team assignments will be available upon check-in on the first day of VBS.
Where do I pick up my child’s t-shirt?
After you register, t-shirts can be picked up at the Children’s Ministry Entrance beginning Sunday, June 20. They may be picked up before or after services on Wednesdays and Sundays, or during the week during regular business hours. If you do not get a chance to pick it up early, they will be available on the first day of VBS. No size exchanges can be made once registration has been submitted. For anyone registered after June 14, CDs and t-shirts are only given based on availability.
Drop Off/Pick Up
What are the drop-off and pick-up processes?
The Atrium doors will open at 8:40 a.m. and we will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. Please enter and exit through West Entrance.
Students attending the Special Needs Ministry VBS should enter and exit through the Children’s Ministry entrance.
There will be sign-in kiosks at each drop-off location. If you have several children, you may sign them in at one kiosk. Clear signage will be available to direct you to your child’s group in the Sanctuary.
Is my friend/neighbor permitted to pick up my child?
Anyone picking up a child must be listed on their registration form. If you need to make changes after the form has been submitted, please email email@example.com.
Can I pick up my child early?
Children are involved in many activities and often rotating through the building. For this and other security reasons, early pickups are discouraged. Please do your best to schedule dental, doctor and other appointments outside the daily VBS schedule.
Does my child need to bring a snack?
Snack is provided as part of the VBS program. Please do not bring a snack unless necessary for allergy reasons.
Is the environment allergy safe?
We try to avoid common allergies when selecting snacks, but we cannot guarantee the selection will be free of all possible allergens. If your child has a medical condition, you may supply one snack item for your child per day. We must be made aware of the allergy at the time of registration. 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 and background-checked volunteers, 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 2021 VBS Mission Project?
We will be collecting school supplies and backpacks for local schools in the area.
Do I have to attend Cornerstone Chapel to volunteer?
No. If you wish to help, you will need to complete the volunteer form and we will send a link for you to complete a background check. Please give us the name and contact information of a person you know at Cornerstone Chapel as a reference. In addition, you are required to attend a VBS training meeting.
