 Dropping Off and Picking Up Children

There is no need to stand in a registration line on Day 1 of VBS if your child has a Name Tag and/or Safety Cards.

  • Elementary school-age children have a Group Number on their name tag
    • Children are dropped off and picked up at the Worship Center (Building A).
    • The group number is on your child’s name tag and group numbers are on the Worship Center walls. Take note of the group number so that you will know where to pick up your child when you return.
    • Name tags must be worn every day. Group leaders will collect name tags at dismissal each day.
    • Dismissal begins at 12:15 PM. Please do not enter the Worship Center until the doors are opened for you to come in. If you need to pick up your child before the doors are opened, please go to Registration in the lobby adjacent to the Worship Center.
    • Present your child’s Safety Card to the group leader when picking up your child. Two are included in the registration envelope. The HOLDER of the card picks up the child. Older siblings that are at least 15 years old and have a safety card may pick up a younger sibling.  No children will be released to “meet their parent at the car.” If you do not have a safety card with you, you will be asked to see our Registration Team.
  • Preschool age children have a Letter on their safety cards
    • Children are to be taken to their assigned classrooms in the Preschool Hall (Building A).
    • Signs are posted at the door of each room with a class list posted outside each room.
    • Preschoolers receive sticker name tags in their classroom each day.
    • Present your child’s Safety Card to the classroom leader. Two are included in the registration envelope. If you do not have a Safety Card with you, you will be asked to see our Registration Team.

Please apply sunscreen and/or insect repellent if your child requires this protection when being outside. Our volunteers are not allowed to apply these products.

Each day bring a water bottle labeled with your child's name for them to use during VBS.
