Can I volunteer to help with Vacation Bible School?
Yes PLEASE! The program is only as good as all the volunteers that help make it a fun and successful week. All adult VBS volunteers are required to have a current background check and attend Called to Protect training. Please make sure your check and training is current before volunteering for VBS. This is a great opportunity for middle school and high school youth to help out during summer vacation. We are happy to provide proof of community service for those that have those requirements in school programs.
The following is a brief description of volunteer opportunities for Vacation Bible School.
