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

Can I pick up my child early?
Children are involved in many activities and often rotating throughout the building. For this and other security reasons, early pickups are discouraged.
Does my child need to bring a snack?
A daily snack is provided. Please do not bring a snack unless necessary 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 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 2022 VBS Mission Project?
We will be collecting items to support local food banks.
