It seems to be a constantly changing world these days and Westbrook has been busy adapting to these changes. Our latest endeavor has been our 2020 VBS program. Due to regulations on group size and social distancing, it just did not seem possible to hold VBS in 2020...until we re-imagined VBS.
With the success of our Facebook Live Sunday morning Westbrook Kids program, we decided to dream up what the potential of a Virtual VBS could be. We are excited to announce that we will not be canceling our 2020 VBS program this year, but moving ahead with a Virtual VBS. We are planning a weekly Wednesday evening Facebook Live VBS program filled with lessons, games, crafts and more. The unique aspects of a Virtual VBS are family participation and how it is not limited to only K-5th grade. Because of parent involvement, any child is welcome to participate.
Our 2020 VBS theme this year is God's Backyard Bible Camp. This VBS has a major focus on SERVICE, which is incredibly important during this time of change. We will be holding our VBS on Facebook Live each Wednesday evening throughout the month of July 6:00-7:00pm. Registration is required for any family wishing to participate and receive the materials needed for the program. We will be packing supply bags and leaving them in a deck box outside of the office for pick-up at your convenience. The following information is the schedule for our Virtual VBS.
Wednesday, July 1st: Serve Family
Wednesday, July 8th: Serve Friends
Wednesday, July 15th: Serve Neighbors
Wednesday, July 22nd: Serve Community
Wednesday, July 29th: Serve Jesus
While gathering over 100 kids for in-person VBS makes social distancing virtually impossible, another potential opportunity our Virtual VBS holds is participating together with members of your Small Group. Spending Wednesday evenings together through the month of July could not only be a great bonding experience over the summer, but has potential to spark some amazing Small Group Service Projects.
We hope you are able to join us for God's Backyard Bible Camp in July. Please be sure to register your family as soon as possible so we can prepare the supplies needed for home participation.
