Vacation Bible School
August 8-12

VBS Logo 2016Have You Heard?!  We are so excited about VBS Week at RRCB August 8-12. Please consider volunteering. It is such a fun week to share the joy of the Lord with wonderful children and youth.  Last year we were able to host over 100 children!  Without the help of volunteers, we would not be able to have such a successful VBS week.  Please review the list of opportunities below.  The VBS Team is looking for both adult and youth volunteers. Childcare is available for volunteers who have children under 4.

All volunteers are required to have a background check. Please print out, complete, and return the Background Check Consent Form to the church office.

Betsy Lowery will be available at a table during the receptions Sundays, May 1 and May 8 where you can ask any questions about volunteer opportunities, obtain a background check form, and sign up to volunteer.  Please email any questions to or contact Betsy at 804-338-4604.
