VBS Supplies Needed

We need the following items for crafts and decorations for VBS. Label all items and place them in the kids kitchen next to the nursery. We will be sure to label your Christmas trees when we put them up to make sure they get back to you.

We need:

Christmas trees
empty toilet paper rolls
empty paper towel rolls
empty and clean milk cartons
empty Kleenex boxes
stuffed FOREST animals (raccoon, bears, rabbits...)
metal trash can
tops to kid's food pouches
empty and clean metal food cans

Please leave them in the kids kitchen by May 28th so we know how much we have. Thank you!

Publicity Chair

We need a Publicity Chair to help us spread the word about our awesome events! Post our events on Nextdoor, The Patch, and others. Dani has a list of sources.

The Publicity Chair also makes sure that banners are put up a few weeks before the events occur.  

This is a great way to volunteer while working from home. Please contact Kenna Anderson if you can help.


We are in need of a second volunteer in the nursery on May 28th (Memorial Day weekend) and June 4th or we will have to close the nursery on those days.

Please consider helping out, especially if you use this service of our church. Let Dani in the office know if you can help.
