VBS Volunteer Registration 2022

Monumental

July 11-15, 2022

M-Th 8:30-12:00; F 8:30-12:30

Go off-road for a Monumental VBS adventure through the colorful canyons and sunbaked trails of the southwest and help kids form a rock-solid faith! By exploring God's awesomeness, kids form a rock solid faith for the journey ahead. Join us this summer as we dive into the story of Joseph, and learn all about God through Joseph's trials and triumphs. Mark your calendar now to volunteer for this exciting all terrain adventure! We thank God for your desire to volunteer and serve. Please note:

  • In order to simplify the sign-up process we do not require volunteers to sign up for each day. WHEN YOU SIGN UP THE DATE WILL REFLECT JULY 11TH, BUT THE SIGN UP IS ACTUALLY FOR THE ENTIRE WEEK, JULY 11-15, 2022. IF YOU CANNOT VOLUNTEER ON A SPECIFIC DAY(S) PLEASE NOTE THAT IN THE COMMENT SECTION OF YOUR REGISTRATION.
  • *NEW* Background Check All VBS volunteers, 18 years and older, MUST have a current criminal history check on file with Avon UMC. The church has recently partnered with an agency, Ministry Safe, to process background checks. If you have not yet completed a background check with Ministry Safe, you will receive an email from the agency. It is quick and easy, but should be completed within 14 days of receiving the emai! New background checks will be good for 3 years.
  • *NEW* Ministry Safe Training The safety of the children in our care is extremely important to Avon UMC. With that in mind, the church has partnered with Ministry Safe, an organization dedicated to equipping churches and ministry programs to better protect children from sexual abuse.  All volunteers are invited to complete the training, but the church would like all section leaders and adult line leaders specifically to complete the training. The training can be completed online and takes about 1 hour. This certification is good for 5 years.
  • Training Dates Please plan to attend one of the VBS trainings (Thursday, July 7th @ 6pm OR Sunday, July 10 @ noon) to learn how VBS is growing and evolving this summer. 
  • Childcare Childcare for the children of volunteers not yet old enough to participate in VBS (3 and under) is available all week. 
  • Photo Release Throughout the week a church photographer will be taking pictures of our Vacation Bible School activities. These pictures may be shown on our projector screen in the sanctuary, printed in the VBS newsletter or appear on the AUMC Facebook page. Please contact Holly Collins at [email protected] if you do NOT want to be photographed.
  • There are many opportunities available to share God's love throughout the week. A brief description of each area is provided within the sign-up. Detailed descriptions of the line leader and floater positions are available below.
  • Questions If you have any questions, please contact Holly Collins at [email protected] or 317-345-3002 .

Line Leader (Our GREATEST area of need!): Be the leader for a small group of kids for the week of VBS, leading the kids from station to station. Two to three line leaders will be assigned to each group. Volunteer Line Leaders are the lifeline of VBS and easily the area we need the most people. A large pool of line leaders allows us to keep group numbers small which promotes a sincere connection with our kids! We will do our best to honor requests to be placed with specific children.

  • Line Leaders must be able to serve a minimum of 4 of the 5 days.
  • ALL Line Leaders must be able to attend a training session on either Thursday, July 7th @ 6pm or Sunday, July 10th @ noon.
  • Line Leaders MUST be ready to meet his/her group at 8:30 each day.

Floater: If you are unable to commit to a full week of volunteering but still want to serve during VBS week, consider being a floater. Floaters may be assigned to any area that needs an extra set of hands. Sometimes our volunteers aren't able to be at VBS on a particular day or an emergency prohibits a volunteer from fulfilling his/her job on a given day. In such events, our floaters save the day!!!

Thank you again for volunteering. VBS would not be possible without everyone who generously gives of their spirit and time. Thank you!
