VBS Parent Info

**JUST FOR PARENTS**

Vacation Bible School is looking different this year, but thank you for joining us for an exciting week of VIRTUAL VBS! We’re looking forward to partnering with you as YOU lead a virtual experience in your own home. 

START HERE WITH A WELCOME LETTER FROM OUR DIRECTORS

What does Virtual VBS Look Like? In short, that’s completely up to you! We suggest you begin by following the day-by-day links found here on our website. There are games, songs, crafts, bible stories and prayer time. You can watch all the videos at once or divide them up throughout the day… whatever works best for your family! All the links and videos will remain available through July 31st.

REGISTER HERE Register your child HERE for a Virtual VBS experience hosted by Anastasia Kids! By registering, you’ll receive emails about our children’s ministry activities and let us know that you’re doing VBS with us.

7 STEPS TO HAVING THE BEST VBS EVER

FOCUS Activity Boxes Many of the items needed for the crafts and games are easily found around the house and can be found in the instruction videos and PDFs on each Day’s page. The below video references the “Parent Pack” – all items can be found on these pages in digital format.

Conversations about Faith Does your child want to talk more deeply about their faith? We have some tools to help you with those conversations. Start with this video (it’s for kids AND parents!), then download the parent guides and let us know how we can help!

If your child understands and has made a decision to follow Jesus Christ but has never been baptized, we would love to have them join us! If you think your child is ready to make this decision but hasn’t yet, we’re happy to set up a time to talk with them. Contact Tamre Bennett at tamre.b@anastasiachurch.org for more information.

Parent Cue Guides + Devotional We’ve provided daily guides to cue you with what you need, when you need it, so you can be the parent you want to be. Learn more about Parent Cue here.

BIBLE STORY BONUS If you want to dive in further, we’ve included additional lessons and printables that can be used to further discuss the daily Bible Story (Parent Pack). These items will also be available as PDFs each day.
