We are hosting a completely virtual Vacation Bible School this summer. The theme will be Compassion: for others, for ourselves, and for the world. Interactive video presentations will introduce a new idea each Wednesday, beginning July 15
There will be opportunities for art, crafts, and other activities using a few simple supplies, and more!
This event is FREE, and we would love for you to join us, wherever you are!
*Because of the copyright on the VBS material, we will not be sharing VBS content in public posts on Facebook or websites. Instead, we will be sharing VBS content via a group email as well as a closed Facebook group for participants. Participants can also share photos & videos of their VBS experiences in the closed Facebook group.
*Materials needed for each week's lessons, including printed coloring posters, craft supplies, and a snack, will be available in bags for pickup every Sunday evening, 6-7pm, beginning Sunday, July 12, at First United Methodist Church in Jesup. Bags may be retrieved from the church entryway after that time if you are not able to pick them up at the appointed time.
*T-shirts are available for participants and volunteers to purchase. Size 4T, Youth Small through Youth XL, and Adult Small through Adult XL are $14; adult XXL is $16. Shirt orders must be placed by July 5. T-shirts will be distributed in the bags for pickup on the week they are ready.
*If you would like to donate to the cost of VBS supplies, you can donate to any of the churches in Jesup, and mark "VBS" on the donation.
*Our offering for VBS this year will go to the Jesup Public Library, to help them purchase diverse books.
Once you register, your email address will be added to a group email list and, if you have provided a Facebook username, you will be invited to join a closed Facebook group just for this event.
Each year VBS selects an organization to donate an offering to that ties with the theme. This year we'll be collecting money for the Jesup Public Library to purchase more diverse children's books for their collection. Click the donation button below to donate any amount via credit or debit card.
If you prefer to donate via check, please drop off or mail to any of the local Jesup churches and indicate "VBS offering" in the memo line.
(Note: when paying through PayPal, the payee information may say firstname.lastname@example.org, this is expected. The PayPal account was set up by our offering coordinator Sara Borland, but will ALL be donated to the library.)
