Living Stones Church is hosting VBS Monday to Friday, August 12-16, 2024, and we need your help! If you love God and love working with children, we would love you to join our team. VBS is open to 200 kids from in and around Red Deer, so we need an army of volunteers to make it a success!

  • VBS runs from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (8:30 to 12:30 for volunteers) for five days; many volunteer shifts can be flexible.
  • VBS is for kids born between 2013-2018.
  • Volunteers must be born in 2012 or earlier.
  • One volunteer training session is required (August 7 or 8, from 6-8 PM)

We need approximately 90 volunteers in areas such as:

  • Leaders
  • Youth Helpers
  • Games
  • Crafts
  • Decorating (Fri, Aug 9 at 10 am & Sun, Aug 11 @ 7:30 pm)
  • Snack Crew
  • Special Needs Companions / Sensory Room Hosts, for kids who need a quick break from the excitement.
  • Check-in
  • Set-up/Clean-up Crew
  • Tech/Sound Crew
  • Cookie Donations (we need 2,500 cookies for the week!)
  • Prize Donations


Prizes! We suggest that individual prizes be less than $25.00. We group smaller prizes to make them all around the same value.

Prizes can be dropped off at the church office anytime during business hours. Please label “For VBS.”

Here are some ideas:

  • Lollypops (for memory verse rewards)
  • Toys
  • Sports Equipment
  • Gift Cards
  • School Supplies

Both of my kids had a great time! Thank you so much for all your hard work to make this happen for the kids. Thank you to all the volunteers. What an awesome week!
