This registration page is used for both weeks of VBS (July 10-13 and July 17-20). You will be able to select a specific week when registering.

We recommend signing up for the follow week based on your location but if a different week works better for your schedule, that's fine:

  • July 10-13 from 6:30pm-8:30pm at Windsor Heights (Suggested for Downtown, South, Altoona)
  • July 17-20 from 6:30pm-8:30pm at Windsor Heights (Suggested for Windsor Heights, Highland Park)

As a final wrap up to the VBS program participants from all weeks will be invited to participate in Christmas in July packing party for Operation Christmas Child on a July 21 at the Downtown location.

2017 VBS: Week 1 Volunteer Signup

July 10th - July 13th, 2017

Summer is here and that meas VBS is coming soon. This year at Walnut Creek we are going to have 2 VBS weeks. As our congregations have been growing these past few years we have surpassed the capacity of our facilities to be able to have all our kids in a one week program. That said, we would encourage you only pick one of the following weeks. We've indicated a suggested week based on what congregation you attend but we know that your schedule may make the other week better. That's OK.

Finally, we are shortening the VBS program to a 4 day format and combining our VBS program with our annual Christmas in July for Operation Christmas Child. Going to 4 days will help our leaders and volunteers to have adequate time to rest and prepare, especially those who are doing both weeks.

  • July 10-13 from 6:30pm-8:30pm at Windsor Heights (Suggested for Downtown, South, Altoona)
  • July 17-20 from 6:30pm-8:30pm at Windsor Heights (Suggested for Windsor Heights, Highland Park)
  • July 21 is the Christmas in July packing party for Operation Christmas Child
