VBS 2016 Update
I would like to express to each and every worker, my deep appreciation for the numerous hours of work that you served. The types of volunteers that served are directors, teachers, class helpers, worship leaders, registration table helpers, van drivers, snack crew, recreation, music, security, art/crafts leaders, nursery workers, volunteers who gave out lunches, clean up and set up crews, backdrop painters, and many other helpers who gave of their time and effort to make this year’s VBS a true success!
Weeks prior to VBS there was outreach, phone calls, personal contacts, and more to promote VBS. The results were better than we ever could have imagined! God worked in numerous ways and touched the hearts of students and adults.
Below are some interesting facts about VBS 2016:
Four lunch outreach areas each day for five days
Outreach was done in 11 neighborhoods
Four childcare facilities participated
Six van routes were run twice daily
Over 250 lunches were provided daily
Nine local businesses provided materials/supplies
Registered 360 children
Average daily attendance of 270 children
Approximately 100 VBS volunteers
I personally was very excited about the diversity of our volunteers. Every age group in the church family was represented among the volunteers. For many it was their first time participating in VBS. For me, it was exciting to see God’s family working together to reach children/middle schoolers for Christ.
Hats off to our VBS Leadership Team, Amanda Phelps and Kasey Ledford, for their dedication and loving spirits. Their leadership led to the success of VBS 2016! These ladies are truly amazing!
We are already looking forward to VBS 2017!!!
