Volunteer Opportunities 

As we begin to prepare for our Cave Quest VBS adventure this summer, we are looking for some key leaders to help coordinate different program areas. VBS can't happen without the support of our volunteers. We strongly encourage ALL parents of students to volunteer in some way, including donating food items.

Please include those children on the registration form to reserve their spot.
