Director) will put us in work groups and give instructions on how to set up for VBS.  VBS is a major undertaking, so this is an important night to get ready.  We'll need all hands on deck!

Note: We want to invite all rising 6th graders and their families (including younger siblings) to join us for this important night as we welcome them to the Youth Group. This is a family event: parents and younger siblings of current youth are also invited as we close out the summer and anticipate the coming school year.

8/27 (Sunday) Promotion Sunday: On this Sunday we welcome rising 6th graders to move up from the Children's Ministry to officially join the Youth Group! This is a Family Worship Service, so there is no Sunday morning Youth Group - everyone attends worship services. During the 10:30 am worship service, we will ask rising 6th graders and their families to come up front so that our congregation can celebrate this important transition with them. Please submit a current picture, baby picture, and a life verse for your student to valscott@vbcc.us by 8/20.

8/27 (Sunday) Orientation for rising 6th graders and their parents in the Youth Lounge right after church.  Pizza will be served for lunch. This is a chance to get familiar with the Youth Lounge, ask questions about the Youth Ministry, and hear from Curt and a few of our leaders about our vision and philosophy.

8/30 (Wednesday) No Youth Group - we want to give families and leaders a week off as we gear up for the Fall. VBCPS teachers are in training/preparation for students this week as well.
