Family VBS is in your backyard and online this year!
July 27-30

All aboard!!! We are excited to invite any kids entering Kindergarten through entering 6th grade to Rocky Railway Family VBS 2020!

We will not be holding VBS on site at Faith, but are encouraging you to host a Family VBS in your own backyard! We will provide online pre-recorded videos with music, Bible story lesson, Bible point and Bible verse for each day (click here for a quick music video montage!) Each family will be provided with a kit that has ideas for games, crafts and even fun snack suggestions to go with our Family VBS theme.

This is an amazing opportunity for you to invite neighbors and show them the hope, reassurance and abundance of God’s love through the unique ministry of Vacation Bible School. You may choose to do Family VBS as an individual family or you can decide to join another family or two and do Family VBS together.

In order to have an accurate number of kits available, we ask that each family register online, listing their children who plan to participate in Family VBS. Even if you are unable to participate during the week of July 27th, you can still register online. The daily videos will remain on Faith’s website throughout the remainder of the summer so you can do Family VBS anytime that works best for you!

Family VBS FAQ

We are so excited to equip families to be the disciple makers to their children and circles of influence this summer with Family VBS at home.  Families will participate together in their homes and backyards using pre-recorded videos, online resources and a Family VBS kit geared to enhance this special week.

July 27-30, 2020.

The kit / online resources are geared towards kids entering Kindergarten – entering 6th grade this fall.  Any ages are welcome to watch the videos or participate in the daily game; however, we will not be offering craft items for children outside the K-6th grade range.

YES!!!!!  In order to have an accurate number of kits available, we ask that each family REGISTER their children who plan on participating in Family VBS. Click/tap on the green Register button above to register.

YES!  This year especially gives us an amazing opportunity to invite friends, family or neighbors to our home and / or backyard and learn about Jesus!  However, keep in mind, Family VBS will be just as much fun if you decide to do this year as an individual family as well. If you do decide to organize and take responsibility for combining with another family or two, we ask that you are mindful of the current state regulations for gathering in groups.

In an effort to be respectful of state guidelines and our desire to see families remain healthy this summer, we are equipping families to be the disciple makers in their own homes and backyards through Family VBS.  In homes, parents will have the oversight and comfort level to facilitate and monitor children with hand washing, restroom usage and food service. Faith Church does not have the resources in place to coordinate many of these necessary activities when gathering large groups of children while meeting NYS guidelines regarding Covid-19.

  • Online videos: Music, Bible lesson, Bible verse, Bible Buddy, and Bible point for each day
  • Kit / Online resources: small group questions and activity, game, craft, and coloring sheet for each day

Each daily video will be posted on Faith’s Facebook page, YouTube channel – Faith Church Online, and church website on Sunday, July 26 (and they will remain there for the rest of the summer, so if you miss a day or have to do VBS later in the summer, you can still access the material).  Additional resources will be provided in a Family VBS kit for each child as well as posted on the church website.

No problem!  The daily videos will remain on Faith’s website throughout the remainder of the summer so you can do Family VBS anytime that works best for you!

Your Family VBS kit will include a music CD (1 per family), daily craft (supplies and instructions), small group discussion questions and printouts needed for daily activity, directions for Loco Motion Games, and Bible Buddy coloring mask, coloring sheet and bookmark.

***NOTE: We will also include in your kit printouts of ideas for snacks that coordinate with our Rocky Railroad theme.  It is completely up to you if you wish to include snack in your specific Family VBS.  We will not be supplying any ingredients needed for the snack suggestions.

Family VBS kits will be available to pick up at Faith:

  • Sunday, July 19th after service
  • Wednesday, July 22nd from 3-5pm outside by Bradt Road entrance
  • Sunday, July 26th after service
