VBS 2020

Welcome to WE ARE THE LIGHT! VBS. This year, VBS takes place at home with a daily interactive video released each day right here. Videos are independent viewing for all elementary-aged kids, and fully accessible for preschool students with some adult guidance. Each day’s video will include worship, a craft, and a snack – all guided by our dedicated staff. Learn more about each aspect of VBS by clicking on the sunshine buttons below. Don’t forget! All students must be registered in order to secure their small group spot and their family kit. Please see the registration tab below to sign your child up!

July 13-16

Important to Know


At 3pm each day, Sr. Pastor JJ Whitney, Senior Pastor at FUMC Bentonville, will celebrate communion with you via Facebook Live.

Small Groups

All registered children will be placed in a small group for social connection and reflection. Small groups take place at 4pm each day and will be led by our Children’s Ministry Leader, Ms. Ashdon, and volunteers.

Supplies & Snacks

We are providing all the materials and supplies you need, in order to participate! Family kits with all materials for crafts, snacks, and home communion will be available for drive-through pick-up at FUMC Bentonville on July 10 beginning at 9am.

Sponsor a Family

You will have an opportunity to sponsor a family’s participation, when picking up family kits on July 10.  The cost of one family’s participation is $10. We are hoping to register 80 families this year. Contact Sadie, FUMC Bentonville’s Children’s Director HERE with questions or to learn more about making a donation.
