2019 VBS Letter to Parents

Dear Parents,

Christ is Risen! We are SO thrilled to be opening registration for our 2019 Vacation Bible School, which will take place online. Our theme this year is “ROAR: Life is Wild. God is Good.” Your child will explore God’s goodness and celebrate a ferocious faith that powers them through this wild life. We’ll learn that even though life can be unfair, scary, sad or can change, God is always good!

This program can’t go on without the help of our precious volunteers. I humbly ask that any parent who may be interested in volunteering please contact me at 904-396-5383×12 or email me at pastoral.assistant@stjohnthedivine.com. We will be accepting a limited number of teenage volunteers in grades 8-12. If your teenager would like to volunteer, please have them register online and attend a mandatory training session on Sunday, June 9 at 1 PM in the Church Hall.

Finally, due to the overwhelming excitement and enrollment in our Vacation Bible School, we strongly encourage you to register your children early because space is limited. This year, space for students will be limited to the number of adult volunteers who are available to assist us so that we can maintain an acceptable student-teacher ratio. Early Registration is $15 and ends on May 31. Late Registration is $20 and ends on June 17. Medical forms will be emailed to you separately. 

Looking forward to seeing you at Vacation Bible School.

In Christ,

Alyssa Kyritsis, MDiv
