Vacation Bible School Articles
2017 VBS reviews, new programs and recaps of perennial resources including CMT’s Top Picks, five programs we found stood out from the rest. We believe VBS can be a powerful tool for evangelism for your church. Be sure to select a program that mirrors the mission and theology of your church and community.
Taking a break for a quick game or activity can improve focus, the key is being prepared with fun, structured, movement-filled games.
St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Denver likes to dance to our own slightly different beat, even while we embrace the scripture and deeply rooted traditions of our faith. So, not surprisingly, we have a weeklong summer day camp every year. Also not surprisingly, it’s not Vacation Bible School.
Teens make valuable contributions as VBS volunteers. But they need clear and direct training. Here’s what to tell them to keep everyone safe and having fun.
Churches leading VBS (and those with arts, nature, and fitness camps, too!) are also forming the adults and teens who volunteer. Recognizing those who lead the children during their daily camp is an important aspect of the ministry of church camp. Send your volunteers into the glittery fray, reminding them that they do important work on behalf of everyone in your congregation!
