HOW IT WORKS
FUN, CONVERSATIONS, FOOD, AND RELATIONSHIP
YOU CAN HELP THEM
KNOW AND FOLLOW JESUS
How hard is it to run a backyard VBS?
This can be as simple or elaborate as you want to make it. Think of this like a playdate with some added fun.
Who is allowed to purchase a VBS Family Kit?
Anyone who wants to have a great time learning more about how God sees parents and kids is invited to participate. We just ask, if you are able, that each family purchase their own kit. Otherwise, your kids may miss out on some SWEET VBS swag!
Does it have to be in my backyard?
Not at all. Front yard, patio, garage, or pop-up tents all make great locations for this type of event.
What dates can I choose to host my VBS?
Our only request is that it take place in the month of JULY. We recommend a Mon-Wed or Mon-Fri schedule, but the final decision is left up to you.
What time of the day works best?
Whatever time is most convenient for you and your guests. Mid-morning is a great choice because it's still cool enough outside to enjoy all of the day's activities.
Will anyone from the church be at my VBS?
No. But if you would like to have one of the kids staff stop by, send an email to Pastor Josh, and he will get back to you with available times. (He may even bring some extra swag or goodies with him...😉)
What do I do after it's over?
We want you to continue the relationships you have built with your friends and neighbors. Because we are hosting 4 Friday night events in July, you could invite everyone to hang out with you at the church for a fun event. You can also encourage them to join you on Sundays at 10:30 am at the church for our outdoor Family Church services.
What if I invite a family to come that doesn't know Jesus...do they have to purchase a kit?
No. In fact, if that happens, email Pastor Josh and he will try to get some extra swag to you so that each kid has something to remember the week with.
Outreach to Neighbors of GCF
We want to reach our neighbors with the Good News of Jesus this summer by putting on a Neighborhood VBS for those who live in the housing immediately surrounding GCF.
This 3-day program for kids (age 4-5th grade) and their parents, will consist of games, snacks, Bible lesson, and crafts.
We are looking for volunteers who love kids and can help us give the message of Jesus in a brand-new way this summer! Find out more by filling out a volunteer form.

The Eugene Mission needs $1,000,000 annually to do what they do...maybe you can help
WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
As believers, it is our responsibility to reach out to help those in need around us. The Eugene Mission is a great way for you and your family to do exactly that.
This year we would love for you and your kids to get involved in one of four way:
Putting together hygiene bags
Donating food or clothing items
Making a monetary donation
How you interact with this service project is up to you. We hope that God will use this opportunity to open your eyes to just how easy is it to make a difference.
