Begin Online registration
Find out who and how many children will participate in your online VBS. You can do it through email, text message, or online sign ups like:
Share information with your church and families
Decide whether you want to do a 5 week VBS (Each week, we cover 1 Day's theme and stations. Starting Sunday with online worship and Monday to Friday 20mins of 1 station each day)
Or if you will do a 1 week only VBS.
*Although CMI will offer all the VBS Station videos to use, remember that parents will ultimately be the one's working with the child at home. So to do a traditional 3hr/day VBS rotation with all the stations, would be too much work and transition for parents. That is why we opted for a 20min 1 station/day option.
Order your materials.
We will be using Group's Imagination station crafts. Ordering through Group.com or Concordiasupply.com will save you money and its free shipping for $50 and over.
We will be using the following materials during the 5 weeks of VBS.
