Small Group Leaders (Chief Fun Instigators) Needed
Hong Kong Vacation Bible School
Aug. 14-18 and Aug. 21-25
We are so excited to host Vacation Bible School (VBS) over Zoom for our young friends in Hong Kong! With your volunteer help, we will share the love of Jesus with 2,000 Hong Kong children through Bible stories, worship, games, experiments and crafts.
A well-planned list of activities and resources will be provided for each leader, which go along with the Bible theme for the evening.
What to Expect Each Night of VBS
Schedule: When you sign up to lead a small group, you are committing to an entire week of VBS, Sunday through Thursday nights. You will login to Zoom by 7:25 p.m. (Central Standard Time), participate in large group worship from 7:45 to about 8:10 p.m. and then be automatically transferred to the small group that you will lead from 8:10 until about 8:50. Large group closing will last until 9 p.m. Leaders will then login to a different Zoom link for a wrap-up/debrief discussion with all leaders.
Your Role: During your small group time, you will lead a science experiment, craft and game, while encouraging English conversation and sharing your love of Jesus with the children. Each U.S. leader will have a Hong Kong helper who will help facilitate technical needs and assist with language barriers as necessary.
Resources: Materials for leading your small group will be sent to you via mail or available to pick up at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Urbandale, Iowa, for those who live nearby. You will be notified when those materials are ready for you.
Preparation: A Training and Q/A Session for Small Group Leaders will be held via Zoom on Aug. 4 or Aug. 7 at 7:30 p.m. (Central Time). More information will be provided for accessing those training sessions closer to the event.
