Our VBS is ONLINE this year in a google classroom! It will run from June 22 through July 13. New content for the week will be uploaded on Monday. Anyone can access this classroom as long as they have the code. So please feel free to share the classroom code(s) with kids or grandkids not in the area, or if you’re an adult who would like to check in and see what’s going on, please feel free to join!!
For google classroom, the person needs to have a google account (The child does not need one, they can use an adult’s account). If you don’t have a google account, you can make an account (you can always delete it after VBS if you’d rather not have a permanent google account).
If you do not have access to a home computer, device, or internet, please contact the church office at 783-843-6166. We can print out activities, crafts, stories, etc. and mail them to you.
How to Access the Classroom
Go to classroom.google.com
Sign in to your google account (or make an account from this page if you do not have one).
At the top right there is a small plus sign. Click the plus sign and click “join a class” from the drop-down menu.
Type in the code for the classroom that matches your child’s age (or the classroom that your child is most interested in). Then click “join”.
Note: you can join all three classes so that if you have children with different ages, they can access all the classrooms from that google account.
Note: After you “join” a class once you will not have to do it again. The class will always be listed in classroom.google.com under that account.
Ages 4-10 Class Code: 7dbwrzi
Ages 11-15 Class Code: rcwgrtt
Ages 16 and Up Class Code: jtpnvnz

Navigating the Classroom
Click on the classroom you wish to access.
At the top of the classroom you will see “Stream” and “Classwork.”
On the “stream” page you will see any announcements I have posted, as well as an intro video. The intro video will introduce you and/or your child(ren)/young adult(s) to the classroom and to this year’s VBS.
If you click on “classwork” you will see topic pages that has videos and documents. Kiddos and young adults may do each topic throughout the week in their own time.
We would like to have a weekly zoom meeting to see any kiddos or young adults involved with VBS. We will have the meeting on Thursdays, time TBA. So please stay tuned for that. We will announce it not only on Trinity’s FB page, but also announce it in the classrooms. That announcement and zoom invite will be seen on the “stream” page.
