    Our Lending Vault Resources is open! Resources are available on Tuesday mornings,  from 10:30 AM-12:00 PM by appointment only. Please telephone or text 503-850-3538 to make an appointment. If this time is impossible for you, please contact us to work out other options.

    Our Lending Vault is a service we provide for churches to help offset costs for event programming. This includes VBS kits, backdrops, stuffed animals and costumes. It is $20 per borrowing trip. We rely on the careful care of those who borrow to return them in a timely manner and follow the care instructions for each item. This is a local service and requires on site pick up and return. If you would like to submit a resources borrow request, please email or click on the button below.

    NOTE: During the month of July, borrowing from our vault is closed due to camp meeting needs. All VBS supplies for July need to be picked up before July 1. Thank you.
