Here are two VBS teams that you can participate in even if you aren’t able to be at the actual VBS location:

Promotion team

The promotion team will be the ‘hands and feet’ of our VBS outreach. Their job will be distributing promotional materials near the VBS sites. Most of this work will be done on the two Sunday afternoons prior to the start of VBS. Possible forms of promotion: door hangers, posters in nearby businesses, post cards, invitation balloons…. This team’s job is to get the word out!

Materials Team

We have set aside four Saturdays in May and June (5/14, 5/28, 6/4, 6/11) to gather people together to help get all the materials set up and organized for the VBS sites. You DON’T need to come every time! Come as often as you are able. This team will be preparing all the craft projects, making copies for the site binders, setting up snacks for the week, separating art supplies, putting together first aid kits etc. Basically getting everything organized and self-contained so that the VBS teams will be able to hit the ground running!

As you can see, between the site volunteers and these teams, there’s a place for every person in the church to be involved in making GoBig! a huge success!!! All hands on deck! If you aren’t sure where you best fit in, contact Angie Lee at  She will definitely have an opinion ;)

Each VBS team is made up of at least 6 people. Here are the job descriptions for each position on the team:
