The Incredible Race VBS 2019

July 15-19, 6PM-8:30PM

Online registration is closed. Come the first day and register onsite.

On Your Mark. Get Set. Go! On a race filled with fun clues to find, loaded with interesting challenges to attempt, and a global scavenger hunt like you've never seen. At the same time, it's about another race. A race that began at the Garden of Eden and continues until this day, made up of all people from all time.


What Race? The Human Race.

As we move around the world in The Incredible Race, we'll make pit stops before, during, and after the Tower of Babel. Kids will discover how this event from the Bible matters today.

From The Minute Your Kids Arrive At The Incredible Race, They'll Find Fun Waiting To Happen!

The day begins at the Check Point Assembly, a supercharged opening complete with entertaining welcomes, catchy songs, a mission moment, and prayer. Then we’re off to fun rotation sites: Bible teaching, recreation, music, craft and snack.

Online registration is closed. Come the first day and register onsite.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should my child wear?

Children will be moving around a lot and doing both inside and outside activities, which may include getting wet.

What should my child bring?

Because children will be moving from station to station and having an active evening, we suggest they not bring anything with them.

What types of snacks will you serve?

All children will have a snack and drink each evening.

How will my child's food allergy be handled?

If a food allergy is indicated on the registration form, you will receive an email listing all items provided for snacks for your approval. If a child cannot eat one of the nightly snacks, an alternate snack will be provided.

How do I know what group/class my child will be in?

Each child is assigned a group based on grade completed. Most grades will have several small groups but all small groups of the same grade will rotate together. Your child’s assigned group will be given upon checkin the first night. Friend requests across different grades cannot be accommodated.

How much are T-shirts? Does my child need one?

Each child will receive a free T-shirt with registration if you register by June 24th

How much are music CDs

Each family will receive a free cd with registration! They will get it at check-in on the first night. Please listen to it as much as possible to help your child learn the songs.

What time should I bring my child?

VBS starts promptly at 6pm each night. Doors will open for checkin at 5:45.

How do I pick up my child?

Child pickup will be in the sanctuary. Every child will wear a name tag that matches a guardian tag. Children will be released only to a guardian who has the matching tag.

What if someone other than me is picking up my child?

If someone other than the drop-off person is picking up the child, you need to get the guardian tag to the appropriate person. This is the easiest, quickest and safest way.

Are you doing a special presentation on VBS Sunday this year?

Yes! Everyone is invited back on Sunday for the 9:45 and 11:05 services to perform some of the VBS songs for the congregation. Each child will check into the childrens area and remain with SJC Kids for the performance. Children will be checked out of SJC Kids with the same safety procedures as during VBS.

Is there a cost?

No! Attending VBS is free! All children also get a free T-shirt and CD, along with other free goodies throughout the week!

What are the ages to participate?

All children who have completed kindergarten - 5th grade are welcome.

What’s happening on the Friday Fun Night?

It’s fun you won’t want to miss! All guardians must stay with their children on Friday. We will wrap up the week and the children will perform some of the VBS songs! Then everyone is invited outside for a fun evening. More details will be sent home during the week.
