VBS | July 18-22, 2022

Student Volunteer Sign- Ups CLICK HERE

Calling all students! We are getting so excited for VBS this summer, but in order to make it amazing, we need YOUR help!! Anyone currently in grades 5-11 (entering grades 6-12 next Fall) is eligible to sign up! VBS week will be July 18th-22nd, and students would need to plan to be there from 8:00am-1:30pm each day.

Being a Student Leader at VBS is great opportunity for many reasons, but most importantly, you will get to help lead kids to Christ alongside other students during the best event of the summer! This is also a great way to get service hours signed-off for school or other activities that you may need them for. 

In order to participate, you’ll need to fill out the Volunteer Application by clicking on the “Sign-Up” link. Please note that students will receive their final Student Volunteer Placement when they attend the VBS training on Saturday, July 16th. Any questions about the Volunteer Application or VBS itself can be directed to Amber Flores at aflores@glenkirkchurch.org
