July 27- 31, 2020
Student & Volunteer registration is open!
Welcome to VBS 2020: Rainforest Explorers!
This year, VBS will be like no other! Like true explorers, we are not going to turn around because its hard, rather, we are going to press on with our determination, creativity, and use all the tools available to us to learn and engage with God's Word like never before!
This year we are planning for VBS 2020: Rainforest Explorers - Homebound edition! What does this mean? Well it means that this year we will not be able to gather together like we always have. Instead, it means that we will bring VBS to you right at your house! Every student who registers PK-6th grade will receive a special Homebound Explorer Pack! The packs will include FIVE envelopes which will have everything you will need for every single day of VBS, even all the extras! Crafts, t-shirts, collectables, supplies, everything! Starting on Monday, July 27th at 9:00am, you and your whole family will be able to join us on Facebook for our LIVE openings and at 11:30am for closings. In between, you will be able to go to our website and watch every single station in whatever order you want! We will still have crafts, games, storytelling, Bible challenge, music, and prayer! You'll just need your own snack! Thursday night we will join together online for a Sing-a-Long of all our favorite VBS songs and hear all about Jesus!
It seems fitting that our theme is Rainforest Explorers! We have encounteres a massive challenge in our nation right now, but we will not turn around! We will adapt, be flexible, and press on knowing that Jesus is worth the whole expedition! So join us for the adventure of a lifetime! Register today and tell your friends!
PLEASE NOTE: 1. If the social distancing procedures for New York State change in such a way that not only allow us to have large gatherings, but also give us the time to recruit and train additional volunteers, we will prayerfully consider hosting conventional VBS at Our Savior's. That decision will be finalized no later than June 1, 2020. 2. Due to supply limitations we are announcing a maximum capacity of 48 Pre-K students and 200 K-6 students. 3. Registration will close on July 10, 2020 to ensure that we have enough time to distribute Homebound Explorer Packs and prep for the week. 4. Homebound Explorer Kits will be available for pick-up, dates TBD. We are also looking into shipping them for those who cannot pick-up. More information on this soon. 5. We are proud to be able to offer VBS for free every year thanks to your generous donations. Keep them coming so we can continue to offer this week of ministry for free to the community! God bless you!
