June 28-July 2
West End UMC is excited to be having VBS in person this summer June 28-July 2.
We hope you will join us for a fun summer program for children 3 years old through completed 5th grade!
Space will be limited for VBS this year and will be on a first come first serve basis. We will have a wait list if we reach our capacity. For those not ready to return in person or on the wait list, we will have a take home option.
VBS will be 9-12 each morning, with no after care this year. VBS will cost $30 per child, with a discount for additional children in the same family.
All children and volunteers will be required to wear masks during VBS, we will be keeping groups mostly self-contained, and we will be spending as much time as possible outside on the church grounds. We will also ask parents to keep children home if they are sick, and need to be 24 hours fever free before returning.
**In previous years children from the West End Preschool have been able to participate in VBS in the morning and then return to their classrooms for the rest of the day. This year because of both VBS and preschool covid protocols that will not be available. Children from the preschool are still welcome to participate in VBS this year, however, families will need to choose either attending preschool that week or VBS. If you opt for VBS, you'll need to drop off and pick up with the rest of the VBS families at 9:00 and 12:00 and your child will not be able to go to the preschool in the afternoon. We apologize for the inconvenience and the hard choice this may be for some families. Thank you for understanding that we are trying to implement policies that will keep everyone safe to the best of our ability.**
We will need adults to serve as small group leaders and help with check in each day as well as help us with decoration set up and clean up. You can indicate your willingness to serve in these roles on the registration form or contact Maggie Jarrell or Julie Catterton at email@example.com.
We hope you will join us for a week of discovering God love and sharing God's light on Adventure Island!
