VBS

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!

Start Something New

Vacation Bible School

One of the most exciting weeks of the church year is Vacation Bible School (VBS). It is a concentrated time of Bible learning, crafts, games, music, and, of course, snacks. VBS is also an avenue of outreach for the church as preschoolers and children from the community participate. You can make missions part of the excitement of VBS.
