VBS is right around the corner. You’ve got your curriculum picked, snack foods purchased — still need to decorate your classroom — there’s still a lot to plan.
But do you have the most important part of VBS ready?
While it’s the most important aspect of VBS, it’s probably one of the most overlooked. So, let me ask you:
- How will you keep track of all those kids?
- How will you register kids that just show up?
- Who is authorized to pick them up?
Security Matters Most
VBS should be a time when your church sees a lot of visitors — both kids and parents. If there was any time you should have higher security — for the safety of the children, protection of the church, and to show how much your kid’s ministry cares for kids in a most practical way — it’s during VBS.
You can create a group for each of your VBS classes and then enroll the kids into the appropriate class. Now you know who is coming and how many volunteers you’ll need for each class. This takes a lot of guess-work out of overseeing VBS. I remember during my VBS organizing days, there was a huge ebb and flow from day to day, from class to class.
When the student’s arrive for VBS, you’ll be able to check them into their specific class.
Roll Call will record their attendance and print a name tag for them. You can also choose to have a parent tag printed for pickup. If you have any “drop ins”, you’ll be able to easily capture their contact information, and enroll them in the appropriate class.
Yeah. It’s this easy:
Once everyone has arrived, print out a check in roster for each of the teachers so they know who they are responsible for.
VBS made a whole lot easier, and most importantly, safe and secure kids.
