St. Catherine of Siena - 2018 VBS - Splash Canyon: God's Promise on Life's Wild Ride

Vacation Bible School at St. Catherine of Siena Church is fast approaching and we would love your help! The VBS program runs July 16 - 20 from 9:00 AM to noon.  The theme for this year is “Splash Canyon": Strap on your life jacket and get ready for a rip-roaring river ride with Splash Canyon: God's Promise on Life's Wild Ride. 

Whether you can give a day, or the whole week, we’d love to have you on the team. If you are willing or able to volunteer: 

1) SIGN UP! Make sure to select the days you are available if the role is all week. You can also add  in the COMMENT section (ex: all week, select days). Note: some roles are for assistance prior to and/or during VBS week and noted as such.

2) Contact Janet Ingersoll at [email protected], or (269) 327-0861 with any questions, for a detailed role description / duties for each volunteer assignment or to indicate Small Group Leader grade preference.

3)SHARE this with anyone who you think would be interested in helping out!

We kindly ask you sign-up by May 5th to allow us to start slotting in assignments.

Additional information will be forthcoming for donation items needed & training.
