VBS Means Opportunity is Knocking at your Church Door!
by Bob Dasal
VBS is one of the best opportunities the church has to impact the lives of children and preschoolers. This summertime event will be here before you know it and early planning and solid preparation are essential for success. Church had always been a part of my life. My parents took me to church the week I was born. Throughout my childhood I always looked forward to VBS!! The foundational stones of my life, which include Scripture memorization, studying the Bible, and understanding the Great Commission, were laid in VBS. Not only does VBS impact those who attend church regularly, but also those who don't. The only time many children will have to hear the Gospel of Christ this summer will be VBS. Reaching the children can be key to reaching families who are not involved in any church. Children enjoy VBS and may become interested in Sunday School as a result of their positive experience at VBS. Follow-up contact could result in whole families attending a Bible-teaching church where they could grow and have fellowship. As you plan and lead VBS in your church this year, be encouraged knowing there are eternal dividends to your efforts. Our thanks and prayers go out to ALL those who volunteer to help this year! To help you with the important task of selecting a curriculum we have on these two pages information from the best providers of VBS material.
