The Children’s Ministry of Edmonton Chinese Baptist Church is excited to introduce a “Concrete and Cranes” Summer VBS Day Camp (Age 4-13) starting on August 17th until August 28th, 2020! Our team of passionate, responsible, and enthusiastic individuals are looking forward to welcoming your children for two weeks of laughter and learning.
Your family is warmly welcome to join us for this different, yet unique experience of summer camp. This year’s VBS camp will occur online through Zoom during the day with field trips in the afternoon occurring outside if the weather permits. VBS summer camp is an opportunity for your child(ren) to connect with and make new friends, learn valuable skills, and have fun activities to look forward to.
In the morning, your child(ren) will join our church virtually on an exciting journey to build a foundation–one that will change their lives–as a Builder. The Builders will get to learn about God in Worship Rally and Bible Study, check out what missionaries do around the world, learn cool songs in Music, develop their creativity in Arts and Crafts, learn how to make yummy snacks themselves, and play exciting games together in Recreation.
We will have outdoor field trips in the afternoons if the weather permits. Social distancing regulations will be reinforced; children will wear a mask and bring hand sanitizer for safety. More information will be provided regarding the field trips’ location and form of activity at a later date. If the weather does not permit an outdoor field trip, we will arrange other fun activities where the Builders will still have the opportunity to get onto their feet! Any changes to the field trip schedule will be announced through email in advance.
We will also have Breakfast together each day at 9:30 AM MDT. The ingredients for each Breakfast may either be delivered to your doorstep at the beginning of each week or you may pick them up at Edmonton Chinese Baptist Church. Please select which option you would prefer in the registration form. The health and safety of all Builders are of utmost priority to all VBS Leaders. If a Builder has specific allergies, please note the allergy in the registration form and we will try our best to accommodate their needs with an alternative ingredient.
At the end of the camp, there will be a Virtual Day Camp celebration on Sunday, August 30th! Children will showcase what they have been learning in our musical presentation. You are all cordially invited to join us virtually as we celebrate our children’s success. More information regarding the celebration will be provided at a later date. You are always welcome to join us Sunday for English, Cantonese, or Mandarin worship at 11:00 am online on YouTube. Preschooler’s worship and Sunday School is at 3:00 pm, fitness class is at 4:15 pm, and Children’s worship and Sunday School at 5:00 pm on Zoom. Contact us for more details.

The purpose of VBS
As in previous years, this year’s VBS is important, because we get to bring the Bible story to life each day for kids. We also get to help them apply Biblical truth to their real lives in a way that makes sense and applies to their particular age and development. We can partner with the work of the Holy Spirit in helping to discern how we might lead a child when he/she might be ready to make the most important decision he/she will ever make: to trust Jesus Christ as his/her personal Lord and Savior. In these two weeks of VBS, we try to mobilize the entire church to reach our community with the Gospel, while simultaneously providing a unique discipleship experience for the individual child and volunteer.
This year, we will encourage the children as they explore a world of concrete and cranes, rivets and rebar, bulldozers and backhoes. They will learn to build their faith in Jesus as they uncover the truth that He who began a good work will be faithful to carry it to completion. Through activities, kids and leaders will learn that God has a blueprint for each person’s life and will be challenged to learn how to build their faith in the love of Jesus!
