God's Living Water - VBS 2023 at St. Paul's Lutheran, Columbia, IL

Warm greetings to our families planning to join us for our VBS in 2023!

Our week starts on Monday, June 12th through Friday, June, 16th from 9 am - 12 pm. 

The week will end with a short closing program starting at 12 PM on Friday in the church sanctuary, followed by a pizza lunch with kids and their families!

All families who wish to attend in-person must pre-register using this form or by contacting our director at 618-719-9307. If you cannot make it in person but would like curriculum materials to work on with your family, please contact carleigh.ottwell@gmail.com for more information.

Please feel free to bring friends and family to our event. We will have activities for students in PreK3 through 6th grade.

A note for our PreK families (entering PreK3, PreK4, or Kindergarten),

  • Children must be potty trained to attend. Please contact our director, Carleigh Ottwell, at carleigh.ottwell@gmail.com if you have any questions or concerns about this.

  • There is a section on the application asking for your child's birthdate. Please provide this so we can group our younger and older preK students appropriately.

  • Pick up and Drop Off procedures will be communicated to families as the date approaches. Please check your email later this spring for these procedures.

  • Sometimes, our little ones (or parents) have a tough time being away from one another. Fear not! Our PreK program has time built in for students and parents to start their VBS day taking a few minutes to learn about the love of Jesus. More information about this will be communicated in our PickUp/Drop Off procedures.

Thank you again for your interest in VBS 2023 - God's Living Water at St. Paul's. We hope your child learns and grows in Christ this week as they hear the word and are in fellowship with other children and adults of faith!

Any other questions or concerns, please email carleigh.ottwell@gmail.com or call the church office at (618)281-4600.
