  • Times & Dates
    Hero Central VBS meets from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm nightly beginning on Sunday, June 11th and ending on Thursday, June 15th.
    Attending VBS is FREE at Polk Street UMC.
    The doors to Hero Central (PSUMC's Christian Life Center Gym) open for drop off at 5:45 pm each night and the opening assembly begins at 6:00 pm.  
    Parents and guardians are welcome to join their kids for the closing assembly which begins at 7:50 pm each evening.
    Age Range
    Hero Central VBS is open to children who are at least three years old by June 11th (they must be potty trained) all the way up to kids that finished up the fourth grade this spring.
    PSUMC youth (kids that are entering 6th-12th grades next fall) may sign up to volunteer as a youth volunteer.  
    Volunteers
    To comply with our Safe Sanctuary Policy, all adult and youth volunteers must pass a background check and complete our online child safety training.  Background checks must be renewed every 12 months.  Child safety training must be retaken after two years. All volunteers are encouraged to attend the "Heroes" short term Sunday morning class which will meet weekly in Wesley Hall from 9:40-10:40 am each Sunday through May 21st. We had an incredible response to last year's volunteer training breakfast and have scheduled one for this year on June 4th at 9:30 am in the Great Hall. This year's VBS volunteers will be commissioned during worship services on Sunday, June 11th.  They are encouraged to wear their VBS shirts to worship on that day.
    Offerings & Missions
    Each year, the children participate in a VBS Mission Project. This year's mission theme will be: "Help Them Discover Their Strength in God!" The mission project for 2017 will be announced on Sunday, May 14th.
    VBS Work Days
    Your help is needed! This year, a large portion of the set has been designed to be reused upstairs as permanent decorations in the elementary wing.  This means that the construction will be a bit more involved and we need LOTS of help. Some of the types of work include light carpentry, painting, decorating, and prep work for groups or classes. Childcare for the work days will be available by RSVP only.  Please contact kenknight@psumc.com to make reservations.
    2017 Work Days:
    • May 3rd: 6-7:30 pm
    • May 10th: 6-7:30 pm
    • May 17th: 6-8:00 pm
