Are You Ready?!

WOO HOO! Are you ready to come with us as we MARVEL at the KING?! We will be learning how God uses ordinary people and transforms them into superheroes of FAITH! Get ready for a week of worship, crafts, games & activities, and so much more! We are so excited that you are coming. We can hardly wait for you to see all that is planned for this year! This letter will tell you what to do ahead of time and on Monday morning. Please look it over carefully as there are several changes this year!

Team Names

Please be sure you know your team name! You will need it Monday morning to find your group and your assigned group seats when you get here in the morning!  Each team in VBX 2018 is a brand new superhero name special just for your team! We make every effort to assign each child to a team with a good mix of kids who will get along well and complement the strengths of others in their group. We do not place children outside of their own age group. If your child is not with the team you were expecting, encourage them to make new friends and give their team a chance to shine. Please do not change your child’s team.

Things to Know
