VBS 2020:  "In the Backyard!"

VBS 2020 is happening!!

St. John’s families, I’m so excited!  We’ve been given the green light by our Return Team to begin sign-ups for St. John’s VBS 2020 “In the Backyard.”  Our VBS will take place August 11,12,13 outside in the parking lot and on the lawn at St. John’s. We have three time slots that families can sign up for: 9:30-10:30, 11-12 and new this year, an evening slot from 6:30-7:30. Children from the same family will be placed together to minimize new contacts. Other changes due to the virus will include but are not limited to: everyone wearing a mask, physical distancing, hand sanitizer between stations and individual supplies for each child.  Prior to your child attending VBS, please read St. John’s current COVID-19 procedures for VBS as approved by our Return Team and assure you and your children are complying with the guidelines.  Please take a look at this as you consider signing up for VBS and before attending in August.  As with everything with COVID-19, these procedures could change.  In that event, I will send any changes in a follow up email.


Our schedule for VBS will look something like this:
