Nursing Home VBS

Children's Ministry Magazine

We had a fantastic time re-creating our vacation Bible school for local nursing home residents. Here's how you can do it, too.

  • Contact the recreation director of the nursing home several weeks in advance to schedule your event in the early afternoon.
  • Draw from the closing program of your VBS to prepare songs, poems, Scripture verses, and dramas to present for 30 minutes.
  • Pray as a group beforehand.
  • Introduce each person. We had a karaoke machine with a microphone so children could each say their name and age.
  • Take along back-up tapes or CDs.
  • Bring small gifts kids made in VBS that they can give to the residents afterward. Allow 30 minutes for children and residents to visit.
