1). VBS is completely free. The only optional expense are t-shirts for leaders. Every leader will receive a VBS t-shirt and they cost Broadway $6 each. If you need a leader t-shirt, email our VBS director, Nancy Crawford at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Leaders need to wear their t-shirts and name badges each night. If you're interested in serving at VBS, email Nancy.
2). Dinner is served every evening to children and leaders. The menu will be posted on the church's Facebook page before VBS begins. We also have themes for children and leaders each day:
- Mismatch Monday
- Team Day Tuesday (Roll Tide!)
- Wacky Socks Wednesday
- B.A.R.F. Day Thursday (Bring A Real Friend)
- Orange Day Friday (Aren't You Glad You Came To VBS)
3). We'll have a "Penny War" between the boys and girls. This is a contest to see who will bring the most money for our VBS offering. If the boys win, our children's director, Mrs. Sherry Lyons, will happily receive a pie in her face. If the girls pull off a rare upset and win...Every penny given goes towards the Kentucky Baptist Convention's Sunrise Children's Services. Sunrise is Kentucky's largest non-profit provider of services for children in crisis. We hope to raise over $470, which is our all-time VBS offering record, set last year. We want children to give their offering to help other children. Begin saving your coins!
4). Sunday June 25 at 6 p.m. is VBS Family Celebration! Your children will perform their VBS songs, hear a Gospel presentation from Pastor Daniel Ausbun (meet below from the Panama Canal), everyone will be served hot dogs, cotton candy, popcorn, popsicles, and jump on inflatables! All family and friends are invited to celebrate an exciting carnival-style Maker Fun Factory week! Everything's free.
5). VBS online pre-registration closes on Friday June 16 at midnight. We close pre-registration three days before VBS to prepare for class sizes. If you miss pre-registration, you can still register in-person on Monday June 19 at 6 p.m. Avoid long-lines and paperwork by pre-registering your child by June 16. Register your child online here. Our goal is over 153 children, which was last year's all-time record.
Parents, our commitment to you is for Broadway Baptist Church to provide a safe environment (every leader has undergone a background check), teach your children about Christ in a fun, engaging setting they will remember for a lifetime. Experience Lexington's Maker Fun Factory! June 19-23 from 6-9 p.m. 2500 Harrodsburg Road 40503
