Get Baptized!


Dear VBS Parents,

On Friday July 17th at our closing VBS chapel service and on Sunday July 19th at our 10:15am morning church service, we will include the baptisms of children from VBS.   If your child is not already baptized, we hope that you will seriously consider having your child baptized here at St. John’s during one of these special services!

Please visit the baptism page for:

  • Information on baptism
  • RSVP for the baptism. (Please select “VBS baptism Friday or VBS Baptism Sunday” under the service preference on the scheduling form.)

Once you have scheduled your baptism, we will be in touch with you to go over all the details and service time options.

Sick Child Policy

It is our desire to provide a healthy and safe environment for all of the children at St. John’s Lutheran Church VBS. Parents are encouraged to be considerate of other children when deciding whether to place a child under our care. In general, children with the following symptoms should NOT be dropped off:

  • Fever, diarrhea, or vomiting within the last 24 hours
  • Green or yellow runny nose
  • Eye or skin infections
  • Other symptoms of communicable or infectious disease

Children who are observed by our team to be ill will be separated from other children and the parent or guardian will be contacted to request that the child be picked up.

Medications Policy

It is the policy of St. John’s Lutheran Church not to administer either prescription or non-prescription medications to the children under our care. Medications should be administered by a parent at home.

Parents are reminded of our sick child policy. Exceptions to the medications policy may be granted to parents of children with potentially life threatening conditions (such as severe allergies or asthma). Parents of such children should address their situation with the VBS First Aid Director to develop a plan of action.
