But we know a lot of hard work happens before VBS week rolls around. For more than 25 years we’ve created VBS programs, and we understand the crazy and stress that come with it. That’s why we’ve taken the best tips and tricks we’ve learned over the years and rolled them into an easy-to-follow planning guide. In this six-page free downloadable guide, you’ll find our best tricks, as well as tips from veteran VBS leaders around the country, budgeting and fundraising inspiration, and ideas for how to recruit volunteers (and keep them coming back!). Whether you’re a primo planner or more of a “just wing it” kind of person, this FREE download will set you on the right path for VBS success! As you take on this adventure, consider one more thing. When the details feel overwhelming, take a deep breath and remember why you do VBS in the first place: To help draw kids closer to Jesus. At the end of the week, kids won’t remember whether or not everything went perfectly as planned. They’ll remember the friendships they made and the faith-building experiences they had along the way! So use this free guide to help prepare you for the action, but allow God’s love to shine and direct the way. Still deciding on which VBS program to use this year? Take this quiz.
