WELCOME TO THE VBS VOLUNTEER PAGE FOR ZILLAH NAZARENE'S ROAR VBS, SUMMER 2019!


Each year, people like you play such an important role in VBS!   It is our chance to teach the kids of our community, have fun with them, and show them love. Thank you for your willingness to be a part of the "village" it takes to put this thing on!


IMPORTANT DATES:


VBS: July 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 at 6:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m. at Zillah Nazarene Church


VOLUNTEER TRAINING MEETING:  July 6, 9:30 am-2:30 pm.  ZNC fellowship hall

  • Team leaders: We will learn procedures and schedule, get our leader t shirts, and decorate the sanctuary, lobby and downstairs so we are ready for the kids!
  • Station Leaders:  You need to decorate your space.


Night #1 (July 8):  Volunteers arrive by 5:30 p.m. in t shirt/safari gear.  Be ready to help with the BUSY registration time and getting kids to their crews before we start singing!   Station leaders go to their station and make sure they are prepped for stations.  You do four a night.


Nights 2, 3, 4:  Be there 5:30. Same basic schedule:  get attendance taken and to registration table, be with your kids during the opening, lead them through stations, and come back up for the big finale!  After your name tags and area is organization, you can go.


Night #5 (Friday):  After we finish with kids, all hands on deck to clean up! ( Ice cream follows!  We usually finish before 10 p.m.)


TO DO BEFORE VBS: Team leaders


1. Make sure you are good for all of the above dates.   If not, let Mrs. Fender or Mrs. Brant know so they can find coverage--we can't have teams or areas left alone!


2.  Come up with a safari guide costume!   You will get the official t shirt from us.  You come up with shorts (khaki?), headgear, bandanas, even props like a canteen...Just make yourself into safari guide!  Wear it Monday, July 8 and all the rest of the evenings we do VBS.

Note:  We have some hats and such leftover from other years if you need one of those.  Get it July 6.


3.  Learn the songs!    The opening and closing sessions have lots of cool songs--but we leaders need to know them if the kids are going to have fun singing them.  See below for a YOU TUBE playlist of the songs!    Station leaders: Be sure you have the supplies you need for all of your lessons.
