VBS Preparation

We are beginning to plan for 2020 VBS!   


VBS Planning Meeting

Sunday January 12, 2020




  1.            Propose topics for consideration.  These will be presented to the elders at their meeting Monday, January 6.
  2.            Suggestions will be entertained for organizing and implementing the various components of VBS.
  3.            Once the elders have approved a topic future meetings will be devoted to implementing the plan to make the VBS successful for our students.


Guidelines and parameters for VBS:


The purpose of VBS is to explore Bible stories, characters and themes in more detail than can be done in our Bible classes alone.  We want our children to understand better the historical context and settings of these stories, characters and themes.  We want our children to be excited to learn about God's Word and make that learning a personal experience.  The focus of the lessons, experiences, crafts and activities is to help make these Bible lessons come alive in their minds. 


We intend for the VBS to be a limited evangelistic effort.  By that we encourage all of our children of the appropriate ages to attend as well as any of their friends they invite.  We also invite the children of the surrounding congregations to attend.  Our advertising to the community will be limited to our sign and a few radio spots.  We intend to have a pre-registration system that will give us a good idea of the number of students to expect for each class to facilitate our planning for classes and activities.
