Be a part of your own special group – The Reef!
At Shipwrecked, kids discover that Jesus rescues them! Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures and collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings.
We begin on Monday, June 11 and continue until Friday, June 15, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. Drop off time will be from 8:45-9:00 a.m. With all the activities each day, please make sure your child wears comfortable clothes and closed toe shoes. Each child will receive a VBS T-shirt while supplies last. Music CDs will be available upon request for an additional donation of $7.00.
With the growing concern of allergies and amount that is offered, we ask each parent to send a snack for your child daily in the amounts they need. The group crew leader will collect them at the opening session and keep them until snack time. Please send in a closed bag labeled with your child's name.
We will have a designated snack area if your child has a peanut allergy. St. John's will provide water and lemonade daily.
Each day concludes with Sail Away Sendoff that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. Family members and friends are encouraged to join in daily for this special time at 11:50 p.m. General pick up is at 12:00 p.m. No child will be released to siblings unless they are listed on the registration form and are over the age of 18. In addition, no child will be released to an adult without their pickup card unless they are listed on the registration form and have proper ID or notified by the parent prior to pick up.
