This group is for anyone who loves children and wants to help (in a small or big way) with VBX this year. We will plan and prepare during April, promote both internally (to our own families) and externally (to the families in our community) during May, and present during June.
We can benefit from a variety of skills and talents (praying, organizing, promoting, greeting, decorating, cooking, music, storytelling, crafts, outdoor activities, . . .) so we need you!
Note: Joining this group will require completing a Background Check administered by the Conference. The cost will be covered by the church, so a commitment to participate through June is asked for.
