For the past two summers, a team from Abiding Savior as gone down to assist several Beresford SD churches with their Community VBS. This inter-denominational VBS seeks to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with children from their community. Historically, there have been over 200 children from the Beresford area who attend. Our teams helps with music and skits/drama/puppets during the opening and closing, as well as overseeing the Recreation time.

This year, I hope to build two Abiding Savior teams: one to lead the Opening and Closing, and the other to oversee the Recreation time. I'm looking for teens and adults willing to help in one or both of these teams.

  • Team of Youth and Adults (looking for 14 people total)
  • One 3 hour planning Meeting on Sunday, August 5th after the 3rd Service (pizza provided) to plan and rehearse
  • Meet at Abiding Mon-Fri Aug at 7:45am and Load into church van (or meet us in Beresford about 8:30am)
