Top 10 Reasons for Not Serving AT VBS


 
1. Who will watch my little ones? 
We will! Our preschool fills up quickly because it’s so awesome. But we provide childcare and priority VBS space for children of those serving. There’s no wait listing for your child if you serve!
 
2. I’m too old. 
We doubt that. We have lots of seniors who serve. Our eldest is 83!
 
3. I don’t know the Bible very well. 
You’re in the right place to learn. We fully prepare the lesson plan for you. If you read and add love, you will help fulfill the great commission! Plus, we also need lots of people to help the teachers.
 
4. I can’t teach kids for 3 hours a day by myself. 
Good! Because you only get 30 minutes. The rest of the time is moving to other activities with other leaders. And every classroom has multiple leaders.
 
5. I don’t have time to prepare. 
We know that. We prepared everything. All crafts, activities, supplies and lessons are prepared for you. We even send instructional videos for each lesson. 
 
6. I don’t have time to decorate my VBS room. 
Let us know and we’ll do it for you.
 
7. I can’t be there every day. 
That’s OK.  We need you on days someone else can’t be there.
 
8. I am not very organized. 
No problem. We are! Our VBS staff is known for superior organization.
 
9. I’ll get hungry and thirsty. 
We understand. That’s why we provide snacks and drinks.
 
10. I don’t know what to wear. 
We have that covered. You can purchase a shirt at the VBS booth but it’s not required. Dress comfortably to be on the move with kids.


Vacation Bible School is June 11-14 from 9:00a - 12:00p.

“Eleven joyous years.”

 That’s how long Monique Cardwell said that she and her husband, John, have been a part of Fun With The Son. FWTS is a Cottonwood Creek family mission event that provides eye and dental screenings, haircuts, face painting, balloon animals, train rides, and every school-aged child in attendance receives a backpack filled with school supplies.

 Monique plays a huge role behind the scenes getting all of the permits and approval from the City of McKinney. Each January, she along with the rest of the planning team, start the ball rolling for the upcoming event held each August.

 “I coordinate getting supplies to the park, setting up the park for the event, medical team and police support,” Monique said. “This definitely is a team effort. Many hands go into making this event work each year.”

 Monique and John make FWTS a family event each year. Whether its helping with the event day of or packing backpacks and canvassing neighborhoods the weekend before, there is a job for everyone, no matter their age. John, a local firefighter, helps each year with the onsite medical support. This year two of the Cardwell’s daughters joined the fun. Katelyn, 14, has served in years past packing school supplies, handing out water and painting faces. As a member of the Cottonwood Creek Student Ministry, Katelyn helped play games with the kids who came to the event this year. Monique and John’s 11-year-old daughter Ashlyn helped at the event for the first time this year handing out books.

 “The hardest part about this for my girls is getting up at 4:30a to get to the park for set up,” Monique said. “They would both agree it’s worth it.”

 FWTS is a great opportunity to be On Mission locally. Make plans to be a part of the 19th annual FWTS on Saturday, August 13, 2016 at Old Setter’s Park in McKinney, Texas.

 “It doesn’t take a lot of effort and you don’t have to travel far,” Monique said. “As a parent I love being able to demonstrate how to show God’s love to others by meeting a need and just having fun with them.”
