VBS FAQS

What is the mission for VBS this year? 

With Kingdom Chronicles, your brave knights and fair maidens will be equipped to put on the full armor of God so they can stand strong in the battle for truth. Plus they'll see the contrast between God's kingdom and Satan's kingdom of darkness, and they'll realize that they are not automatically born into the “good” kingdom but need to be saved from the “bad” kingdom through faith in Jesus Christ. 

Prepare for a royally fun time!

 

How do I register my child? 

Online registration opens June 20th, and our VBS season kicks off with an Open House on July 10th from 4:30-6 PM with an ice cream social, bouncy house, games, and prizes!  Please go to nlicc.org to register and direct any and all questions to Julie Root at jarootva@gmail.com or Jennifer Worman at jworman3@gmail.com.

 

Is there a cost for my child to attend VBS? 

New Life in Christ Church is blessed to offer our VBS free of charge!

 

What is the VBS schedule? 

We have a new policy!  Drop off time begins at 8:50 AM with parents bringing their children to the church foyer registration desk where they will check their child in and get name tags and schedules.  Children will then bid farewell to parents and be escorted into the sanctuary by a VBS volunteer where they will join their class and meet their teachers.  From 9 AM to 12 PM, kids will enjoy worship time, drama performances, classroom activities, recreation, snacks, and crafts.  Pick up will mirror the morning drop off.  Children will be gathered by class in the sanctuary waiting for parents to check them out at the registration desk in the church foyer.  Once checked out, registration will inform VBS volunteers to escort children to meet their parents in the foyer.  While this new protocol is very different from what has been done before, VBS leaders feel strongly this is the best way to ensure safe and simple organization for all.  Thank you!

What should my child wear? 

We encourage relaxed play clothes and comfortable shoes, but that shorts be modest and dresses are worn with shorts underneath.  Children will be enjoying classroom projects, outdoor activities, yummy snacks, and creative but sometimes messy crafts, so they may get dirty!  Each child will design and can wear their own VBS shirt.  Sunscreen application is also strongly recommended before beginning each day’s adventure!

 

What if my child has allergies? 

During the registration process, please inform coordinators of your child’s specific allergies and provide any and all information regarding triggers, treatment, and medications.  Coordinators will work with teacher and kitchen staff to ensure your child is properly cared and provided for!  We will have junior epipens and a med kit available.

 

Can parents stay during VBS? 

In order to limit numbers and avoid crowding, we do not have a parent’s area available at this time, nor are parents able to remain with their child in classes.  However, parents are invited to come and observe in the back of the sanctuary during the closing worship time but will be asked to move back out to the foyer to check their children out at the registration desk before collecting them!

 

Who will be teaching my child? 

Our staff consists of all volunteers ranging from all ages and backgrounds!  We are blessed with their willingness to serve, some for over 30 years!  All adult coordinators, teachers, and assistants 

will have completed a certified Child Protection Course and a satisfactory background check.

Will I need to provide a snack for my child? 

Our kitchen staff does a fantastic job of preparing yummy and nutritious themed snacks for each day, all while attempting to remain peanut free.  If your child has a food allergy or sensitivity, please include that information in your registration.  Labeled water bottles are permitted; however, there will be ample water breaks.
