Vacation Bible Camp--VBC


Here's a Link To the VBC Registration Form

This year's Vacation Bible Camp will be "EGYPT:  Joseph's Journey from Prison to Palace."    VBC will be held from August 1-5.  Gee, Paul, how do we help?  We do have the following volunteer opportunities:

  • Daily Registration--Check in/Check out  (See Tammy Trudeau)

  • Group Leaders for a group of 8-10 children in a particular age group (We need 8 people ages 18+)

  • Bible Stories:  (Bill McCullough is on board to lead a group of teen volunteers; we'd love to have one more adult)

  • Dance Artist of the Day (We need three more people, ages 18 +,  as we have two already committed.  You get to lead a 15-20 minute movement class!!

  • Arts n Crafts Artist of the Day (We need four more, ages 18 +)  since Edna Colcord has told me she is on for one of the days!)

  • Registered Nurses (see Amy Crocker)

  • Snacks (Sharon McAbee is on board but will need at least 2 other adults to help each day.  We also provide a separate snack for the numerous volunteers.  See Shelly Capen for details.)

  • Games (Deb Trimble has volunteered to coordinate) but we would love to have at least one other adult (18 +) to help with this. 

  • Music (we have the awesome services of Mark Jacobson, Patti Colkos, Aaron Pilarcik and Ben Mabrey. Are there any other band members out there?)

  • Office Help (Donna Carlson is our VBC Office Chief, but we could use someone to assist on Monday and Thursday)

  • Decorations, Decorations, Decorations:  we will meet on Tuesday and Thursdays from 9:30-11:30 am and from 6:00-8:00 pm) to make decoration.  We will tell you what we need and supply the materials to make them.    Also, we will do the majority of our decorating on Sunday, July 31 from 6:00-8:00pm.  Last year we had FORTY PEOPLE here decorating and finished things in about one hour. 

  • Clean-up:  What goes up, must come down and get put away on Friday, August 5 from noon -2:00pm.

  • TEEN VOLUNTEERS are students between the ages of 12 (must have finished Gr. 6) through 17.  We can never have enough TEEN VOLUNTEERS!!

  • Please note:  All volunteers who will be present during the actual operation of VBC must have a CORI check.

See Paul or a listed person for further details or explanation.

I am excited for the summer and the plans we are already making for Christian Education/Faith Formation in the year to come.  It continues to be a blessing and pleasure to serve the people of Wilbraham United Church.
Peace,
Paul

!! CHOIR !!
I'm looking for two additional ringers for our Handbell Choir. We're looking for ones who have some familiarity with reading music and who can commit to weekly rehearsals and playing on the first Sunday of each month
(with occasional "extras").
