IT’S TIME TO LEVEL UP VBS!
Spin the spinner, beat the clock, skip ahead, level up, and play to win! You’ll need to bring your A-game for this VBS. Twists & Turns is a fantastical celebration of games of all kinds. From classic tabletop games to video games and more, kids will play their way through VBS while learning that Jesus guides them through all the twists and turns of their lives. They’ll find that even when they mess up it’s never “game over.”
Dear Parents, Guardians, and Family members,
Welcome to Vacation Bible School at Immanuel Baptist Church. We are excited to have your child join us this
summer. Please note the following procedures for checking your child in and out of VBS each day (this information
is also available at www.ibcpace.com/VBS).
All children must be walked by an ADULT into the Worship Center each morning. Doors open at 8:30 am for
registration. Opening session begins at 9:00 am.
We are excited to utilize carline pick-up this year! Taking a page from our school systems, the security and
efficiency of carline pickup is familiar to most families. We have carefully planned carline pickup foremost with
children’s security in mind, but also to maximize efficiency for families. The pick-up will be long on Monday as the
children and adults learn the process. However, as the week progresses, the time will shorten considerably. Thank
you for your patience.
Authorized individuals MUST have a Parent Pick-up Tag supplied by Immanuel to pick up their children. Without a
pickup tag, parents will be directed out of line for our security volunteers to check a photo ID against the
authorized pickup list. Only after this security check is completed, will parents be directed back into the pickup line.
Pick-up will not be allowed without the pickup tag or proper identification for the safety and security of the children.
Pickup Directions: (pick-up map included on the back of this letter)
Please plan to enter the campus via the Hwy 90 light in front of the church. Remain in your vehicle, follow the signs,
and security personnel will assist you in the pick-up procedures. Please have your pick-up tag displayed and visible
for VBS personnel upon arriving at the church.
Preschoolers and children will be dismissed from the Worship Center at 12:15 pm. The line for pickup will be
opened no earlier than 11:30 AM. Prior to 11:30, the side and back roads/parking lots on campus will be closed for
the safety of the children as they travel between buildings on campus.
If you need to pick up your child early or drop off a child late, please enter the church campus via ALBA St. and park in the parking area behind the Mattress Store. Go into the church office (tan cinder block building) and a volunteer in the office will assist you.
Follow us on Facebook for daily updates!
We are excited that your child has joined us for Twists & Turns VBS!
In Christ's love,

Mission ProjectWe will be collecting new hair brushes for Backpacks of Hope - a mission project of Immanuel Baptist Church that
provides a backpack, hygiene items, a pair of shoes, and a haircut free of charge to children in the Santa Rosa County community. Donations are greatly appreciated. Our goal is 500 hair brushes. If we make that goal, someone will get pied!
Monday - Friday: The children will get to vote on who they want to get slimed on Sunday with the change/money they bring. The competition is between three fun and fabulous adult VBS leaders. The kids will drop their offering off in the Immanuel foyer when they arrive in the morning. Each bucket will have a leader’s face on it to make voting easy. We will update the kids daily on who is winning that day.
All gifts go to the Florida Baptist Children’s Home and to BackPacks for Hope.
