VBS Volunteers Needed:
This is a role bestowed to each congregation to help champion VBS. You are a connector and know who to talk to in order to get things done! You are open to heralding VBS in three areas: helping to get the word out to all the children (through their parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles), you'll find ways to share the sponsorship challenges to fund VBS, and help us find volunteers.
Guild Leaders:
Tournament Leaders (Games)
The tournaments of the day challenged participants to show their strengths and to compete against the other kingdoms, this year our tournaments will be teaching children of the victory of Jesus saving us!
Great Hall Leaders (Snacks/Supper)
We are feeding an army this year, with 60 kids plus their families and our volunteers feasting, we need your help with shopping, food preparation, serving, clean-up and help with thematic snack to remind us about the tumbling walls of Jericho, Jerusalem road snacks and God's victory mix.
Mighty Fortress Leader (Bible Challenge)
Challenge the children with rhymes, riddles, word puzzles, and finish off with a song for the kids to remember their bible verse. Help Miss Patti shout out that God is Mighty!
Stronghold Leader (Storytelling)
Help the children get into costume and character as they act out bible stories and get ready for the King coming. Help Pastor Rod teach about Jesus our Saviour.
Festival Leader (Crafts)
This artisan will show the children how to make the make the crafts to take home to reinforce the message of the day.
Opening and Closing
Calling all actors, jesters, and singers to help with the acting of the opening and closing each day. This will be live theatre at its finest with Pastor Greg directing! 
Leading the children (a small army of six kids or helping with the toddler group) on a journey of learning throughout the evening you'll take your knighthood-in-training from site to site. 
Theatre Production (Audio Visual)
Since we don't have the acoustics of the coliseum we need a little help with PowerPoint and sound each evening. You'll help with the opening and closing and the Might Fortress Leader site.
You can keep track of the knights-in-training each day ensuring the children’s parent signs in and out each night.
Castle decorators
Holy Cross is ready for a castle make over. We need a crew that will help out beforehand gathering and creating items to transform the church into a castle with a moat and crocodiles, a great hall for feasting, a tournament area fit for kings and queens, and festival area for making crafts. Most pre-work will be done over the summer with set-up during the week before VBS. 

VBS is fun! Share your gifts with little ones this summer and help in any way you can! Volunteer before, during, and after as there is a role for you and we will be happy to use your time and talents.  Also, all who are over the age of 18 must have a police check performed and provided back by August 7.  If you are interested in helping with VBS please let Jackie Hunter know: at jchunter100@yahoo.com  306-260-7274. 
Attention tech savvy people!  We would like to train people that are interested in learning about our soundboard and power point.  We need more people to help ease the load for the volunteers that already do the job each Sunday at the first service.  Please contact the office to let us know and we will begin the training.
