Volunteering Opportunities

Adult Volunteers

We are in need of adult volunteers for our VBS program. Adult volunteers are needed for the whole week or even a few days. The VBS Fee is waived for all adult volunteer’s children who volunteer all 5 days.

For more information about each of the volunteer roles, view VBS Volunteer Opportunities (PDF).

Adult Volunteer Roles:

  1. Nursery Infant (Birth-2years): This is for the tiniest of tots. While the volunteers will surely interact with the kiddos, this is more of a childcare-type station to help out the volunteers in other stations.
  2. Nursery Toddler (2-3years): This is for the tiniest of tots. While the volunteers will surely interact with the kiddos, this is more of a childcare-type station to help out the volunteers in other stations.
  3. Crew Leader (Preschool): These volunteers lead a small group of children around VBS for one week. They learn their names and assist with their immediate needs.
  4. Crew Leader (Elementary): These volunteers lead a small group of children around VBS for one week. They learn their names and assist with their immediate needs.
  5. Station Helper: These volunteers will be assigned to one of the VBS stations to provide specific guidance on the day’s activity that supports the daily Bible Point.
  6. Special Needs Assistant: These volunteers will be matched up with one of our kids with special needs to assist them during VBS.

For adult volunteers, there will be an option to register on your child’s registration. If are not registering a child participant, please select VBS Adult Volunteer when registering.
