Help Make VBS Happen!!!

There are only 12 days until VBS! Can you believe it?!?! We are so excited to see what God has in store for all of those who come and for all of you who serve. 

We still need you! Take a look below at the opportunities to help Athens come to life. Thank you ahead of time for investing your time and gifts telling the Good News to the children of our community!

VBS is just around the corner and we appreciate all you who have been donating supplies! More are still needed though, and you can find those taped to the column in the Welcome Center. In addition to that, listed below are some things we'd like to borrow, and some everyday items that we need your help collecting. Bring them by the Welcome Center any day the office is open! If you are letting us borrow tarps, tents, lights, etc., make sure you label them with your name and number so we can get them back to you!
  1. Pop-Up Canopies
  2. Rope lights
  3. Rugs
  4. Greenery (especially vines)
  5. Baskets
  6. Egg Cartons
  7. Paper towel tubes
  8. Wrapping paper tubes
  9. Large appliance boxes
  10. Tarps
  11. Cereal Boxes/Paper Board Boxes

We know that many of you would love to serve at VBS, but due to work you can't. We have just the place for you to serve! We need hands to help set up Athens on Saturday and Sunday (June 8th and 9th), as well as breaking down. Please contact Chris at if you can be part of this team. 

We are expecting 400 kids for our Vacation Bible School! Praise God! What an opportunity to share the love of Christ with kids in our community! Needless to say, we need all hands on deck! VBS runs from Monday, June 10th - Friday, June 14th from 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM. If you are interested in serving at VBS or registering your children, visit our website here:
