VBS Summer 2021

Greetings, VBS Family!

We are so excited to announce that The Church of the Nativity will be holding

VBS 2021 the week of August 16-20  from 9am to 11:30am 4 years thru 5th grade.  All activities will be outdoors.  We will have a MAIN STAGE where station leaders will rotate through with exciting activities.  As usual there will be Bible Stories, Music, Science, Games and snacks.  Everything will be prepackaged and ready for your family’s crew which will have a spot in the grove socially distanced from other family crews.


Government and Diocesan Covid-19 compliance will be maintained for the safety of all participants and staff.  In order to minimize interaction, we will meet outside as we have for outdoor Masses in the Grove and will also utilize the parking lot.  We will not be mixing the crews.  In order to make this work we will need an adult or high school student from each family to remain with the children that make up their own “Family Crew.”  AND as with all of our other activities there will be a mask policy for EVERYONE except during snack time.  We understand that you may choose to interact with other families on your own time but while we are on church grounds, we have to follow the public safety rules as put out by the Diocese so we will not be able to mix families. This is NOT a drop off program. 

The adult/teen leader in each family crew does not have to pay for participation.

Would you like to receive a VBS kit for home instead?  Let us know!

There will be very limited High School student volunteers outside of family crews but only to gather materials, assist with station rotations, and set up, not for crew leadership. 

If you were signed up last year that means you get preference for this year’s VBS. 

Participation fee is only required for each child 4 years - 5th grade.  Reply to SueH@NativityChurchNJ.org with any questions.
