Imagine…

…a child hearing about the love of God and the light of Christ for the first time.

…kids praising God in amazing ways.

…children praying for each other in the challenges they face.

…adults and teens modeling Jesus’ love to children.

…children serving each other.

 

This summer at Maker Fun Factory VBS, kids will get into gear and learn how they are created by God and build for a purpose. Maker Fun Factory VBS is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences that kids see, hear, touch and even taste!  We invite you to be a part of vacation Bible school at Bethany Lutheran Church (June 19-23). 


We’re praying this awesome VBS program will be the brightest week of the year and help kids in our community discover that: 

          God Made You!          God is For You!          God is Always With You!   

          God Will Always Love You!          God Made You For A Reason! 


As we plan and prepare for Maker Fun Factory VBS, our team would cherish your prayers. Pray that God would give us wisdom in planning. Pray for the right staff members to join our team. And pray that God would begin working in the hearts of the children who will come to Maker Fun Factory VBS! 


Soon our church will be ready to begin this fun week as we seek to follow Jesus at Maker Fun Factory VBS! Kids will learn about God through songs and prayer, experiment with Sciency-Fun Gizmos, and discover life changing Bible truths in fun and memorable ways. To have the best event possible, we need lots of volunteers who can give some time, energy, and love to the kids who will attend. So let me share a few ideas about ways you might be able to make this program a success. Please check out the following list, and then pray about where God might use you. 


Station Leaders: Use easy-to-follow station leader manuals and prepare one 20-minute session each day, which you will repeat with different groups of approximately 20-40 kids. We need leaders for the following stations:

  • Sound Wave Sing & Play/ Funshop Finale (Daily opening and closing) 
  • Imagination Station (Fun, hands-on science experiments) - Like Crafts, but better!! 
  • Game Makers (High-energy games, that reinforce Bible truths) 
  • KidVid Cinema & Melodious Music (Video featuring the real life adventures of real kids and time to sing songs of praise to God) 
  • Snack Factory  (Snacks! Quite possibly the best part of VBS) 
  • Bible Discovery (Incredible, surprising explorations of Bible stories) 
  • Tinker Tot’s Director (Special program for our preschool and kindergarten students) 

Crew Leaders: Shepherd a mixed-age group of elementary children through each day’s activities…and there’s no prep! 

Crew Coordinators: Lead a group of 4-6 crews as they experience Cave Quest VBS. 

Tinker Tot’s Crew Leaders: Be a friend and helper to a group of preschool or kindergarten children…again, no prep required!

 

Still don’t see something that interests you? We also need a…

          Registration team           Decorating team           Photographers

          Supply coordinator         Media Team Office team          

 

Guess what? There are also a few spots for anyone who’s dramatically inclined! Whatever your gifts, abilities, and time commitment, we’ve got a place for you!

 

We believe that God will use this incredible program to reach many children with the message of His love, so please prayerfully consider your role in Maker Fun Factory VBS. Feel free to contact me by email (smoorman@bethanylutheran.org), phone (562.421.4711 ext. 13), or in person if you have any questions.
