Looking for a hero!

Berit Kimrey loves VBS at Fellowship North. She wrote about it here a couple of summers ago. It’s that time of year again, and Berit wants to know if you will help out – here’s what she wants her family at FN to know:

2010 VBS will be held June 21-25!  As in years past, we will open our VBS to the community with special emphasis on the Summertree/Pike View area.

This year’s theme is Hero Headquarters! which is a supercool superhero format relating to unlikely heroes in the Bible.  I am including a link here so that you can peek around and listen to the upbeat music.

VBS will once again be held indoors this year (yea!) with the exception of dinner nightly.  We will have moving rotations like last year. However, unlike years past, we will NOT have a middle school program during VBS.  They will have their own event, End-O-Summer Daze, in August. The schedule is provided below:

5:30-6:00 – dinner

6:00-6:35 – opening

6:40-7:35 – rotations

7:40-8:00 – closing

As we all know, VBS doesn’t happen by itself and is only successful because of the dedication of the volunteers, like you.  We have the following groups available:

  • 1st-5th Boys/Girls (there are 10 possible classes)
  • Drivers/Dismissal
  • Registration
  • Dinner (must be available early each day to prepare dinner)
  • Clean up
  • Part-time (we will place you where you are needed most)

So what’s next?  If you served last year as a leader and want to move up with your class, please let me know ASAP so we can reserve that particular age group for you.

Please email me at berit.kimrey@heifer.org, bkimrey1@comcast.net, call/text me at 416-1501, facebook me, or tweet me (@beritk). Let me know the following: Name, Contact Phone, Contact email, area of preferred service, and dates you are available.

We will have a couple of training sessions (Wednesday, June 16, or Sunday, June 20 – you can attend either one) in order to review some necessary information to make VBS both worry and hassle free.

This is one of the best outreach events we do each year- and is so fulfilling to watch kids of all ages and backgrounds come together to shout out Bible verses and sing and dance for the Lord.

In Him,
