Children's Ministry at Wellington Square
As Jesus says in Matthew: “Let the children come to me … for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” We believe that you are never too young to begin your journey following Christ.
How can I get involved?
Kim Belanger, Director of Children’s Ministry
We are just a month and a bit away from our online Treasured Vacation Bible School!!! Are you excited? We are gearing up at Wellington Square United Church and are soooooo excited… we can’t wait to “see” you online on Monday July 5, 2021!! Treasured will run for the week on a private YouTube channel at 9:30am each morning, and each camper will receive the link for the next day’s program. Below are a few things you will want to know in advance, some further details on timing and registrations, and a few other fun facts.
To add to our program this year, we are inviting campers of all ages to attend VBS this year! There will be sessions for adults, teens, and kids alike! Each paying registration will receive a Kit FULL of amazing things—please note that you will be able to pick up these kits in the front roundabout area of Wellington Square United Church (in front of the main sanctuary doors) closer to the start of VBS. If you can’t make these times work, please be in touch with Kim so that we can make arrangements to get the kits delivered to you! Kits will be given out if your $30 payment has been received by our main office. We ask that you do your best to keep the kit in the bag it comes in and try to WAIT and open it on Monday at VBS—yes, we realize that’s a difficult ask but it makes it much more exciting!!
Our VBS program this year focuses on the idea that we are all TREASURED and together we will be discovering that we are priceless to God. Our Bible Adventures, KidVid Cinema, and Imagination Station will include fabulous lessons that will allow all of our campers to connect with our theme! There will be stories to share, games and activities for you and your family and friends to do together, and songs to sing! We will ask you to send us pictures and short video clips of your camp activities– singing and dancing, creations, challenges, etc., to Kim on a daily basis so that we can have an end of week slide show to share as our VBS celebration!
For right now, we are planning a Treasured Zoom Call on Thursday July 8, 2021, at 7:00 p.m. This will be a time for campers to chat with us, share highlights from the week, and connect with some Wellington Square staff and volunteers in smaller groups. We are also going to have an activity for you to complete and present to us on that call—because we won’t be sharing in snacks at our VBS this year, we are challenging all of you to build an edible Treasure Chest!!! We know you can be creative with fruits, veggies, cakes, fondant, rice krispie squares, and more! Start thinking now!! We look forward to seeing you all there. Should COVID restrictions be lifted by the time we get to our Zoom call in July, we will try to gather at the church, with social distances in proper place…stay tuned!
Be sure to register sooner rather than later to ensure you get a kit. For those of you registering for VBS without a kit, you will still need to register online so that you can be added to our camper list. Registration is now open.
We pray that you will join us for VBS and that you will truly feel how deeply you are Treasured! If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Kim!
