Pack your bags and grab your gear, VBS 2021 is headed to present-day Israel where an epic adventure of discovery awaits. Discover long-hidden treasures, amazing finds, and exciting evidence that proves biblical events were not just stories. They really happened.
At Destination Dig, kids will unearth more than just dirt. They’ll discover real-life archaeological finds that have helped to uncover the truth about Jesus. Stories from the Bible will leap off the pages as kids explore where Jesus walked and examine artifacts that bring the world of the Bible to life. As junior archaeologists, kids will study tangible pieces of the past to learn the truth about who Jesus is and why He came. Along the way they’ll discover the truth of Jeremiah 29:13 that God reveals Himself to us when we seek and search for Him with all our hearts.
VBS is for kids entering kindergarten through 6th grades.
Participants may want to wear sunblock and clothes that are okay to get wet/dirty daily as games will be outside and are often wet/messy.
What will VBS look like in the midst of a pandemic?
First and foremost, you need to know that VBS will look like it normally does, just on a bit smaller scale. We'll still have people here to share the love of God and the Good News of Jesus with your children.
You also need to know, SOCIAL DISTANCING IS NOT POSSIBLE in children's ministry. VBS will operate as it usually does; we won't be able to keep kids six feet from each other in any way, shape or form, but we will promote good hand hygiene throughout the day by all volunteers and children.
All families and staff will be expected to abide by our Well Family Policy. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please don't hesitate to ask.
Hand washing and/or sanitizer will be required during the rotation between stations.
Classes for children entering Kindergarten through Sixth Grade will be available. Students who just completed sixth grade are welcome to join our youth ministry on Sunday mornings at 9 a.m. and Wednesday nights from 6-8 p.m.
Registration will be limited and class sizes will be kept to a maximum of 25 students per age group. REGISTRATION IS FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE. If you register and decide not to attend, please let us know so we can open your spot for someone else.

When registration closes, IF we have room to put your child in another class (one grade up or down) we will let you know. REGISTRATION IS FIRST, COME FIRST SERVE.

Volunteers are NEEDED. VBS can't happen without volunteers. Everyone has to decide for themselves when they are ready to resume gathering with others. If you are ready, please use the link below to volunteer to serve. All volunteers working with children are required to complete an application process. If you are new to serving at GFC, instructions will be sent to you by email. If you are not ready to join large gatherings, please be in prayer for those who are serving/participating to stay healthy and clearly hear from the Lord.
Donations are NEEDED. If you can donate snack supplies we would surely appreciate it.
