Vacation Bible School: Summer of 2020
A summer without VBS? That just will not do, so VBS is on! However, given the pandemic we have made significant adjustments to our traditional program. Nevertheless we look forward to welcoming groups of students to church. Important details:
- In-person VBS will be for children who have completed kindergarten through grade 5.
- Pre-School children can sign up for a VBS Resource Bag to do at home.
- In-person VBS will be in multi-age groupings of 10 children, with a limited number of adults.
- We will hold three sessions; children will sign up for one session each (not all three sessions).
- Dates are: August 3 – 1:00-3:00 PM; August 4 – 9:30–11:30 AM; August 6 – 1:00–3:00 PM.
- The theme will be: JOY! God Gives Us Neighbors.
- Activities will include: A lesson with a Bible story and children’s story, snack, outdoor activity (weather permitting), art activities, and a special edition Marshall Wood Project.
We have received guidance and input regarding our plans from the Pierce County Public Health Office. Health and safety precautions include:
- Parents asked to carefully monitor children’s health, sending only healthy children when all family members at home have no symptoms of COVID-19.
- Classrooms set up for social distancing.
- Robust cleaning protocols in place.
- Children will not share scissors or other craft supplies.
- Snacks will be factory-packaged foods and juice boxes.
- Masks will be recommended when indoors and provided when needed.
