Be Strong: A VBS/Sports Camp for the Children around the Corner

Have you ever thought, “Those children at the apartment complex (or mobile home park or migrant camp) really need to learn about God’s love”? If you’ve been unsuccessful in getting the children to come to your church, then you could go to them.

VBS: A Golden Opportunity to Engage Families with the Gospel

One of the easiest ways to reach people with the gospel is Vacation Bible School (VBS). Many unbelieving families will send their children to VBS. Often, they will even attend a VBS program at the end of the week.

Deliver VBS to Senior Adults and Shut-ins

Reflecting on the summers of my childhood, I always looked forward to Vacation Bible School (VBS). Complete with fruit punch and cookies, VBS was much less about “school” and much more about growing in my relationship with Christ. The weeklong event typically took place within the walls of our local church with familiar faces and dedicated volunteers.

In today’s world, VBS has happily taken on a revised schedule, with many churches choosing to offer an abbreviated VBS at night or on a weekend. But what about stepping beyond the church walls to personally deliver the gospel to an often-overlooked sector of our society? What if we rolled up our sleeves, packed up our resources, and took VBS on the road to a local nursing home or senior center? We just might discover an untapped dimension to fulfilling the Great Commission while experiencing a whole lot of joy in the process!

Senior VBS!

“Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone” (Psalm 71:9 NIV). God values the elderly, and we should too! Is fun only for the young? Are all old people saved? What about having a Vacation Bible School (VBS) at an assisted living or retirement center?
