VBS is available for children ages 2 to those that just completed 6th grade this past school year. We need people in grades 7 to those who have been out of school for more years than they care to admit. Help is needed in the kitchen to prepare snacks, we also need someone who can help each child make a church calendar in the activity center, lead them in games and people to escort each age group to the next center.
