This year’s VBS at Thanksgiving will look much different than years past, but we’re FOCUSED on creating an experience your children, family & friends will love while learning Biblical truths!
In order to provide a safe VBS event for everyone, VBS will be a virtual experience this year!
Here is Some Basic Information for How it Will Go:

Registration: Begins Monday, May 4th via online form found HERE. Register by May 22nd and you’ll receive a FREE VBS t-shirt!
Dates: Sunday, June 7th – Thursday, July 2nd – Instead of one concentrated week of VBS, we have created an entire month of fun that can flex with your family’s schedule and not overwhelm you!
The Basics: Each Sunday we’ll begin the week by kicking off the lesson online. We’ll continue each week with fun & interactive drive through times where you’ll grab weekly supply kits (crafts, activities, snacks and awesome swag to use at home with your family, neighbors or friends! More schedule details will be announced the week prior!
Who Can Participate?
VBS is a fun way to learn more and grow closer to Jesus (even as an adult!)
• Children: Our VBS is tailored for children entering 4-year-old preschool through 5th grade in Fall 2020.
• Teenagers through Grandparents: If you have a young family member, friend, or neighbor, consider leading them through VBS (their parents will love you!) The benefit of being virtual is that even children who live outside our immediate community can participate – we can ship their kits to them each week!
How Can I Support This Ministry?
We do have supply needs to make sure every registrant is equipped for VBS at home. If you’d like to purchase supplies, please see our signup HERE or purchase from Amazon HERE. Donations can be dropped off at the Thanksgiving Church office, M-F, 9am-4pm by Wed, May 27th.
What If I Don’t Feel Confident Leading My Kids?
We hear you! Just as parents had their child’s education suddenly put in their lap, we don’t want to overwhelm you with VBS. We will place everything at your fingertips from videos to watch to craft and activity supplies. All you have to do is be present! The benefit of doing VBS with your kids is the opportunity to learn about Jesus together!
How Much Does VBS Cost?
VBS is FREE…we just ask that you tell everyone you know so they can add some Christ-centered fun to their summer!
VBS usually provides me with a much-needed break as a parent that allows me to refill my tank…HELP!
We get it! Especially during these times. We’ve purposely spread VBS out over the month of June instead of a solid week so it’s not overwhelming when doing it from home. We want to encourage you to partner with other teens/adults in your immediate community so this does not feel like a burden to ‘do more.’
