Hi VBS volunteers!
We had a great training event in early May, in which we introduced the theme, saw some of the room decorations, heard some of the music, ate some snacks, and more.
If you missed some or all of it, or have since misplaced your materials, some of the great information about schedules, volunteer assignments, and more is available for download and viewing here. If you have problems opening these files, try right clicking the link and selecting “Save target as…” or “Save link as…” to save the PDF file to your computer. If you are still unable to open the file, contact Jessica Buckalew or Tommy Knighten for a printed copy.
