Ten Reasons You Should Help With VBS

Hello Harvest Family. I am sending your way ten reasons why you should be part of the VBS volunteer staff. Some are big, some are small, all are relevant. Enjoy!

1. We have snacks. They’re going to be good snacks. They are going to be theme-driven and cute. Why even finish the list?

2. Jesus loves kids. He said to let the little children come to me. Whether you are a regular volunteer, so scared of large groups of children that you make a wide loop into the auditorium away from the kid wing, or have been slowly considering whether or not Uptown is a ministry you want to commit to, we can find a way for you to take part in Jesus’ love for the little ones.

3. Your kid/grandkid/brother/niece would love it. They would be so excited to have you there taking part!

4. You’ll get a t-shirt. All volunteers are going to get an AWESOME t-shirt, design and color TBD.

5. You will get to take part in teaching kids about how BIG God is. If you love God, if you love God so much that you just can’t help but let it pour out of you, I NEED        you. No negotiations. We will have unreached kids there that NEED someone passionate to tell them about how awesome God is.

6. You can be a part of our children’s ministry, even if you don’t have the opportunity for a month on/month off Uptown commitment. I get it, it’s hard to say “yes, I can be in the classroom every other month.” But this is just three hours a day for five days. It’s easy. It’s a great opportunity for members of our congregation who are not normally in our ministry to get to support their discipleship.

7. You really love stargazing, right? Well, we have a stargazing themed VBS this year. It’s perfect for you!

8. These lessons are great for everyone. They are basic and important. Kids, big kids, and adults alike can benefit from what we are offering.

9. We have crafts. And games. And worship. And missions. It’s going to be so much fun.

10. You love Harvest. We love you! You’re part of our family. Serving at VBS is a great way to solidify connections and make relationships. It’s a good thing, I promise.

There you have it. Ten simple reasons. If you resonate with any of these, you can pass a background check, and you have some spare time in the month of July please consider being a part of the VBS staff. There is a wide variety of ways you can help, and they aren’t all Monday –Friday 8:30-12:30. You can sign up with this link [Sign up Here] , or fill out a volunteer form on Sunday. I’ll be in touch soon.
