FAQs

Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we get about Vacation Bible School…

  • Morning Session 9am–Noon
  • Evening Session 6–9pm
This year, VBS is for children who are 5 years old (by June 24) through 6th grade completed.
Casual attire is best (shorts, t-shirts) with close-toed shoes (no flip flops, please; tennis shoes preferred). Your child will have game time outside every day, and they will need to be comfortably dressed. Also, sometimes crafts can get a little messy, so wear something that you don’t mind getting dirty. Put sunscreen on your child before dropping them off.
As little as possible. They will be moving from room to room, and unnecessary stuff can get lost easily.

Make sure you indicate any allergies on your child’s registration form. We have a daily snack and also offer bags of Skinny Pop popcorn or Lays potato chips as an alternative. If what we provide doesn’t work for your child, you are welcome to provide your own snack. Please give it to your child’s group leader at drop-off.

  • The full snack list will be placed here as soon as it’s finalized. Check back for updates.

We usually finalize classes a few days before VBS begins. An email will be sent out with each child’s class assignment. Unfortunately, spam filters can catch these emails, so please check your spam filter and add kids@nwbible.org to your safe senders list.
T-shirts are $10 and are not required, but most kids buy one…it’s fun to see a sea of kids wearing their VBS shirts. You can purchase them with cash or check. Sorry, no credit or debit cards.
The VBS albums are $5 (cash or check), and will be available as digital downloads or CDs.
Come early on Monday. Since it’s the first day it takes a little longer to get checked in. Our opening sessions start at 9am and 6pm so make sure you arrive in time for them to get checked in for our opening. Your kids won’t want to miss it!
We ask that you park in the main parking lot, walk your child into the building, and drop them off at their group (in the Worship Center) each day. You will enter at our main doors, under the canopy, and head into the Worship Center to drop off your child. Pick up will be the same as drop off.
Please let your child’s leader know at drop-off if someone other than you is picking up your child.
We try to honor requests for your child to be with their friends. All our games, crafts, and lessons are geared towards specific ages, so if there is a large age gap between children (more than one grade) we would ask that your child stays in their age-appropriate group.
Yes, our VBS concession stand will return in 2022. It will be in the gym and will open each evening at 5pm with items for $1 each. Check back for updates including our daily menu. The concession stand will close at 5:45pm so everyone can be in the Worship Center for the opening session.

Yes, and we’ll get you more details as soon as they are finalized.
