VBS is for children who will be entering kindergarten (or 5 years old by September 30th) through 5th grade this fall (September 2021). Registration will end on Sunday, July 11th or sooner if crews fill. The fee is $50.00 per child with a family max of $120.00. Rocky Railway CDs (music only) are on sale for $8.00 and DVDs (music and motions) are on sale for $16.00. If ordering online you may pick up your CD or DVD at the church prior to VBS or on the first day.
As you can imagine registration is a big undertaking. In order to make this process go as smooth as possible we ask that if you are registering online as a participant or volunteer to please:
1. Make sure that all of your information is complete and accurate. Please pay special attention to your child's birthdate and grade entering this fall (September 2021).
2. If you are registering as a volunteer you may request a specific job. We will try our best to honor that request but in some cases we may need to use your talents in other areas. We appreciate your understanding.
3. We will provide nursery care and a preschool class for children of our volunteers on the days that you volunteer.
4. If you are registering as a crew leader and you would like to crew lead your child's crew please remember to give us his/her name.
5. We do take photos of the children for our Spotlight VBS slide show that is shown at the end of the day. We also may use photos on our website or Facebook page. We do not use names. You can certainly opt out of this but please remember that the children are often sad when told that we do not have permission to take their photo.
6. If you are using our online paying system, Vanco Payment Solution, please pay at time of registration. If you are using this payment method for the first time you will need to create an account. If you are paying by cash or check we need to have your payment within five business days of registration. Please do not send cash through the mail. A lot of time is spent following up with parents who have registered but have not paid. We would love to spend our time preparing for this fun filled week in other ways. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR CHILD'S REGISTRATION IS NOT COMPLETE WITHOUT PAYMENT. THE SYSTEM WILL DELETE YOUR CHILD'S REGISTRATION FOR NON PAYMENT AFTER FIVE BUSINESS DAYS. If writing a check please make the check payable to APC and mail to:
