The theme for this year’s Vacation Bible School (VBS) has been chosen! We will be doing Cokesbury’s Hero Hotline: Called Together to Serve God! And we are ready to get started! Our fun and wonderful week will take place during the week of June 26-30, 2023.
What IS the Hero Hotline? According to the Cokesbury website (cokesburyvbs.com):
“In the depths of a colorful underground cave, is the beating heart of the hero community, the Hero Hotline Headquarters where everyone’s gifts are valued and every hero has a role to play. Each day at the Hero Hotline Headquarters, superheroes of all ages and abilities answer the call and join the Professor and veteran hero, Super Meer the Meerkat, to provide expert assistance and solutions to Hero Teams everywhere.
When Heroes in the field call in, the Professor, Super Meer, and our team of heroes will spring into action and explore the ultimate Hero Handbook -the Bible- to discover how all Heroes can follow the examples set by a cast of supporting Bible Heroes in stories from the Old and New Testaments, who work together to bring peace, build each other up, and share the great story of God’s love for us where they are and with the whole world.
As kids (called Heroes) experience these stories through music, drama and storytelling, games, arts and crafts, science, and even snacks, they’ll learn that Heroes are called to Follow Jesus, Help Others, Work Together, Listen to God, and Show Grace! And, best of all, they’ll be invited to answer this call at VBS, at church, at home, and every area of their lives.”
Registration information (for leader guide volunteers and kids) will be coming later in the spring, but for right now, we are in need of Station Leaders (or Co-Leaders- grab a friend and volunteer!) for ALL of our VBS Stations (Science, Snack, Arts/Crafts, Storytelling, Recreation, and Opening/Closing/Music). If you are looking for a way to get to know the children and the youth of WPC, this is it! And they would love to get to know you, too! If you would like to volunteer as a Station Leader for VBS 2023, please contact Jodie Davis ( ).
