JOIN US for Stellar VBS!

VBS DATES: June 20 – 22
TIME:  6pm to 8pm
COST:  $15 per child / $40 cap per family

It’s going to be the summer event that helps kids discover what it means to shine Jesus’ light!

At STELLAR VBS, kids explore how Jesus shined hope, love, forgiveness, and joy to the world – and how we can do the same with his power! Kids will experience faith discoveries, memorable music, and epic adventures that help kids grow in friendship with Jesus!

We are excited to offer VBS in a new evening format this year to include more families and volunteers. Stellar VBS will be held at Crestview on Tuesday, June 20 – Thursday, June 22 from 6-8PM. We are also offering a family dinner on those evenings starting at 5:30PM. Please feel free to join us for this great family gathering time!

Elementary includes students entering 1st-6th grades in the fall. Walk in registration will be available for our Elementary program only.

Preschool/Kindergarten includes 4-year-old preschoolers through children who will be entering kindergarten in the fall. (Age 3 can also be included for Crestview families, WCCNS families, or children of volunteers.)All Preschool/Kindergarten students must be pre-registered and potty independent. There will be no walk-in registration for preschoolers or kindergarteners. Register early, as space in our Preschool/Kindergarten VBS Program is limited.

Online preregistration ends at 4:00 PM on Tuesday, June 13th. Hard copy registration forms are available in Crestview’s Main Office and Children’s Ministry Office.

Need to know info to get your kids ready for VBS

Once you have registered your child online, you can choose to pay online as well, or by cash or check. Please write checks out to Crestview Presbyterian Church. Then sit back and relax until Tuesday, June 20th! Registration begins at 5pm that evening in our main narthex. Volunteers will be available to show you and your child where to go once registered. (This is also where your child will meet his/her preschool teacher or crew leader each evening.) Each evening after that, preschool aged children will be escorted to their classrooms by a parent and elementary aged children will be escorted to our middle sanctuary by a parent. All children must be signed in each evening with the preschool teacher or crew leader and then signed out each evening for safety purposes. If, for any reason, a parent will not be dropping off or picking up, please let the teacher or crew leader know in advance who will be doing this instead. We will check IDs for any person picking up children who is not a parent. Thank you in advance for this as our first priority is always the safety of our children!

Each day, please send your child/children in play clothes that can get dirty and wet and closed-toe shoes with non-skid soles. We will be playing and experimenting and this can be messy business! Some of our games include water fun, which helps us to cool off on those hot summer days but gets very messy too.

Our prayer is that Stellar VBS will allow everyone involved to discover the greatness of God’s mighty love.
