Virtual Vacation Bible School

July 13-17, 2020
ALL CHILDREN, JOIN US FOR VBS!
We are excited to join together with the North Alabama Conference to offer Virtual VBS! This virtual VBS will be the bee’s knees! This year’s hive of virtual VBS activity will take place synchronously online on July 13-17 and in backyards across our area. And you’ll be snug as a bug (in a rug) to know that all of this opportunity is free! Don’t let yourself get too many butterflies in your stomach, because you’ll have everything you need to know ahead of time along with videos and written instructions for everything coming in this virtual VBS.
Each day will have a corresponding bug image and buzz word that connects with each of the activities.
The following activities will be included in each daily email, and we encourage the following order, as it moves from active elements to more passive elements and back to active. We have provided the following time frames for each activity (but it is not a limitation at all) as simply a guideline. If anything, we encourage you to enjoy every activity and the time you share together:
Introduction to the day (5-10 minutes)
Storytelling (20-25 minutes)
Crafts (20-25 minutes)
Bug Bites/Snacks (20-25 minutes)
Mission (20-25 minutes)
Science (20-25 minutes)
Music (20-25 minutes)
Wrap-up (10-15 minutes)
The team approximately calculated each activity to follow the same timeframe of a regular VBS. Instead of guided instruction throughout the entire time, each activity (with the exception of introduction, storytelling, and wrap-up) will have an instructional video to help introduce the activity and provide an example. Written/digital instructions will accompany all activities so that you can do them successfully in your home or backyard!
**Note that as you register under the "Church" selection, please scroll through the list of churches and select "Other/Not Listed". On the next section that is titled "Other/Not Listed" you will type in "West Point First UMC".
Also, please let Pastor Erik know you've signed up and then be sure to let us know your t-shirt size. The cost of the T-shirt for each registered child is covered so we will place the order for you. If you have any questions, please reach out to Pastor Erik (firstname.lastname@example.org)
