Who is VBS For?
VBS is for everyone entering Kindergarten through 6th grade.
We welcome everyone from all backgrounds, whether they have gone to VBS several times before or if this is their first adventure. If you are entering 7th grade or older, consider volunteering! We would love to have you join the VBS Team! Middle School, High School, College students and adults. The program is indeed intended for earthlings, but exceptions can be made for martians and any other extraterrestrials.
What do we do?
We do so much at VBS!
This year we have a sports theme! So warm up your megaphones as we gear up, and get ready to get our Game On! We will be learning all about how God has given us His ultimate playbook. He wants us to join His team, train hard, celebrate salvation and encourage one another. Get in the spirit today! Theme Verse: His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. - 2 Peter 1:3

Where is VBS?
VBS at Emmanuel Baptist Church
EBC Norfolk is located at 63 Rockwood Rd. Norfolk, MA 02056. We are located on Route 115, just down the road from the center of Norfolk. Contact the VBS Team Leaders or Church Office for any help in getting directions. We love opening up the church for the whole community to enjoy. VBS is one of our favorite weeks of the year!
VBS is truly Special!
We absolutely love VBS! It provides a way for children of all ages to have good clean fun, and build relationships with each other and with God. We laugh and play while learning about our God who made us all and loves us deeply. VBS only lasts one week, but all who attend will make memories and learn lessons that last longer than a lifetime. It is the VBS Team’s hope and prayer that everyone one who joins us on this summer adventure is changed in the best possible way.
VBS is FREE!
There is absolutely no cost to attend VBS at EBC Norfolk. We do take donations throughout the week for other needs around the globe, but these donations are completely voluntary. If families would like, they can donate pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and dollars as each day progresses. On the first day, bring your pennies to donate! Also, if families would like, they can purchase a Music CD for $5.00. We truly want VBS to be joyful week experienced by as many people as possible!
Meet the VBS Team
All of the VBS Team Members and VBS Team Leaders are volunteers. All have been CORI Checked and we have Registered Nurses available on site in case of any accidents. It is such a joy to volunteer with VBS, we receive more than we give. There is something so very special when everyone works together and experiences the VBS week. We experience great joy when we serve others out of love for God. We can’t wait! The VBS Team Leaders: Andressa, Elyse, Tracy, and Josh all have children of their own and are members of EBC Norfolk. Feel free to contact them with any questions.
