VBS Slide.jpg

Grab your megaphones, lace up your cleats, and tune up your horn. It's time to gear up for the big game! It's go time! Whether you're the type to root from the stands, march in the band, cheer on the field, or hustle to the line, the time is now-it's Game On! Kids will learn that the goal is not competing on their own strength. God has already given us everything we need! He's given us His complete Word as the ultimate playbook. He's given us Himself, which gives us a reason to celebrate. He wants us to join His team, to train hard, to celebrate our salvation, to encourage one another, and spur each other on. So what are you waiting for? It's Game On!

Over 200 adults and students help make a successful VBS each year. 

How can I volunteer for VBS?
Adult and Student FBC members and regular  FBC attendees are welcome to register!  Please complete the online Volunteer registration form.  All adult and student volunteers who are 18 years and older will need to undergo a background check.  If we do not have an updated form on file for you , you will be emailed a link to Backgroundchecks.com to complete a new one.  Student volunteers, under the age of 18, will be emailed a separate Student Helper Application to complete and return to the Children’s Ministry.  There are limited student volunteer slots available. If student slots are full, additional students will be notified and placed on a wait list in case a slot becomes available later. Once approved, volunteers will be contacted by a member of the Children or Preschool ministries and given their assignment.
