Vacation Bible School

July 12-16, 2021 9-12 noon

Registration opens May 15, 2021, 8 a.m.

Elementary aged children (currently finishing K through grade 5) will have the option of attending in person or online. We will be setting a maximum number of children we can safely accomodate for the in person program. The online program will NOT be like last year’s Rocky Railway virtual experience. We may cancel the online offering if there is not enough interest or offer a lower number of stations than we first planned.

We are not offering a program for children under the age of 3 ½. This is what we have called “the nursery” in the past.

Preschoolers (those turning 4 by Dec. 1 up to age 5, who have not been to kindergarten) may register. The preschool program is in person only, with a limited amount of children.

Donating Supplies

Can you help defray the cost of VBS? We have donation slips at First Trinity and an online sign up here. Supplies are due June 20th.

Volunteering at Treasured VBS

Many volunteers will be needed! Volunteers must be finishing 6th grade in this current school year up to 99 years old. You can see the volunteer opportunities on the registration page on May 15. We will have some new positions such as the Dismissal Team and Online Streaming Team. We always need crew leaders (adults and teens).

Start learning the theme song!

A Typical Day – how Treasured VBS Works

This video is created by the Group Publising company – not First Trinity. Imagine kids in masks and more socially distanced than what you see here! We modify some things such as kids will not all have snack together.

Safety Practices During the Covid Pandemic

  • As of March, children and volunteers will wear masks during the 3 hours of VBS, unless they go outside for games or during snack time.
  • The air conditioning throughout our building pulls in fresh air; it doesn’t recirculate the air in the room
  • We will ask parents to send a water bottle with their child. The water fountains are currently blocked off.
  • Your elementary child will be in a small group/crew (5 maximum) with a crew leader. This crew will be together all day, discussing, playing, praying, etc. We will try to keep crews 4-6 feet apart when in opening worship or in learning stations.
  • Your preschool child will be in a small group/crew (3 maximum) with a crew leader. Two crews will sit at table during snack and crafts. During the other learning stations, the crew will sit together on the floor.
  • We will try to have “one way traffic” as the children move from station to station so there is less cross traffic and contact with other groups.
  • Hand santizer will be available throughout the campus.
  • Parents will daily answer brief screening questions about symptoms or contact for each child attending.
  • Parents will have very limited access to the building.
  • All snacks will be prepackaged store bought items.
  • No walk in registrations will be taken-everyone must pre-register.
  • No changes will be made to crew groupings after Day 1. Parents can designate siblings or friends on the registration form that they would be like their child to be placed with.
