Vacation Bible School 2018

“Shipwrecked” VBS

Get ready for an adventure to an uncharted “island” experience where kids are anchored in the truth that Jesus helps them learn to navigate and weather life’s many storms.

 Saint Luke’s can’t wait to be marooned with boatloads of kids ready to encounter God’s word in lots of fun ways. We offer programs for children ages 3 (by September 1, 2017) through 5th grade (current school year).

Ages 3 through 3rd Grade

Children in third grade (current school year) and younger will experience the Bible through science, drama, stories, games, snacks, and movies. Each registration fee includes a T-shirt for each child and a Shipwrecked! Music CD for each household. VBS hours for these ages are 9:15 through 12:30, Monday through Thursday.

Registration Fee on or before April 15: $40*/ Registration Fee after April 15: $45*

*Family Max for this age group is $100 ($120 max. after April 15). Family Max refunds will be issued by Saint Luke’s following full-price registration.  To receive the family discount please pay the regular amount during registration.  You will receive a check for amount of your overpayment within 30 days. Please contact [email protected] with any questions.

 4th and 5th Grade

 Kids in this age group will have the opportunity to discover more about how their own unique gifts can help others in God’s creation. Each morning we will set out for a different outreach location where we will share God’s love through a variety of tasks. On Wednesday we will embark on an overnight retreat in north Georgia, where we will reflect on our experiences and see how they might connect with God’s purpose for our lives.
Registration Fee before April 15: $120

Volunteer Information:

Adult Volunteers

If you’ve ever thought being shipwrecked was a bad thing then you haven’t experienced our Vacation Bible School version of being stranded on a beautiful island! We can’t wait to help children discover that God’s love and care is present – even during life’s toughest times. While God doesn’t promise to “rescue” us from hard things, God DOES promise to see us through them and even provide us hope and healing.

VBS is scheduled from June Monday, June 11 through Thursday, June 14. Our young castaways will hit the island each morning before 9:15 and leave at 12:30 – so most volunteers will need to arrive by 8:45 and plan to stay until 12:45. It will take over a hundred people to manage this merry marooning, so please consider joining our crew.

Attend a volunteer training session in the Seasons Room (231/232), either on Sunday, April 29 from 11:30a to 12:30p or Wednesday, May 2 from 7:00p to 8:00p.

Youth Volunteers

Our VBS kids love having middle and high school buddies help lead them through their daily adventures. This year’s Shipwrecked is going to be more fun than you ever dreamed of having on a deserted island! Here’s how youth volunteers can join the crew. Sign up here for a youth position. We have listed the number of helpers needed in each area so know that if you want to work with a particular person, they will need to sign up as well.
