Wesley United Methodist Church

Ocean Springs, Mississippi

Ann Kaufman, Pastor


It's hard to believe it's VBS time again!  Why it seems like just yesterday we were dressed up in our costumes and learning to be superheroes for God.  

Our first planning meeting will be on Thursday, March 2nd at 6:30pm in the Worship Center classroom.  This will be an important one as we decide what our theme will be for this year, assign folks to different positions, go over the schedule, and decide on things that we want to do or not do for this upcoming year.  Everyone is welcome!  If you can't attend and are interested in volunteering or have some ideas for this year's VBS, please just email me back and let me know.

Putting on a fab VBS takes a team of volunteers.  There are volunteer opportunities for everyone!  If you're interested in helping in anyway, please let me know and we'll find something for you that fits your passions and schedule.

Volunteer opportunities for adults (18yo+) include:

Teachers (crafts, activities, activities, exploration, storytime, dance, snacks/dinner)
Leaders (fundraising for mission, registration, construction, photography, security)

All adult volunteers are required to have a background check conducted within the last 3 years.

Volunteer opportunities for youth (entering 7-12th grades) include :

Teacher Assistants
Assistant Guides
AV/Sound Booth
