Lending Vault Resources

Our Lending Vault is a service we provide for our churches to help offset costs for event programing. 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 to follow the care instructions for each.  This is a local service and requires on site pick up and return. It is not a mailed lending service.  Please fill out this form to request using our Lending Vault Resources in Children’s Ministries. This will help us to serve you better and see if we have the items you are requesting.  We will contact you further once this form is fully filled out. Thank you to those who help sustain this program by donation and using the service.
