Common Questions & Need to Know Info

What time is VBS?

Our VBS runs Sunday through Thursday on July 21 – 25 from 6:15 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Is there a fee to register?

Our VBS is free for every family!

Where do I park when I bring my kids?

Please park at the North end of our lot. The entrance will be labeled “NextGen” and there will be other signage to guide you. This is the entrance you should come in to register/check in your kids.

Is it ok to bring friends with us?

Absolutely!! We love meeting new friends! it is helpful to have these kiddos pre-registered for VBS so we know how many kids to prepare for. Plus it makes check in MUCH faster for you 🙂

Do I need to stay with my child?

You are welcome to stay, but we work hard to provide a safe, well protected environment so you can feel confident leaving them with us. Parents often attend our opening and closing activities in the Worship Center. Opening is from 6:15 – 6:30 p.m. and our Closing runs 8:15 – 8:30 p.m.

Do I need to bring anything?

We provide all the materials and supplies for VBS so kids do not need to bring anything special with them.

However, we do offer a Mission Focus for the week and encourage each child to participate as they are able towards our collective goal.

This year’s mission project is providing books for Shining Stars Childcare Center right here in Pleasant Hill. If you can, please bring new or very gently used board books or hard bound books appropriate for infants, toddlers or PreK age children.

What should my kids wear?

Please have your kids wear play clothes. We are into hands on learning here at NewLife and kids may get dirty or spill during activities. We want them to be able to have fun!

How do I know my kids are safe at VBS?

Your child will be part of a group with a 1:5 teacher to student ratio. ALL adults are required to have a clear criminal background check before being permitted to work with children. We will also have members of our Security Team present throughout each evening of VBS to help assure the safety of the children.

How do you handle special medical needs or allergies?

Children with special medical needs or allergies are care d for by one of our nurses who will be present each evening. Parents will be asked to visit with the nurse, advising them of the best way to care for their child. A special sticker will be attached to the child’s name tag as well as a special wristband so that all VBS volunteers will be aware that your child has a medical need, however, for privacy, details of the child’s needs will be included in the nightly roster for the Crew Leader.


My kids get pretty hungry often. Will you have snacks for them?

Snacks and plenty of water are provided for our busy little friends each evening.
