VBS Season

It seems that this is VBS season. I see notices in the newspaper for a number of churches hosting VBS in the next week or so. At my church, we’re going to have VBS Lite. For the next four Wednesday nights instead of Children’s Church, there will be a VBS session.

It’s been several years since we’ve had VBS so it will be interesting to see how this new format will work out. Having the sessions in the evening instead of the daytime should mean more people will be available to work with the children.

    We started doing evenings some years back. It’s a lot easier to get volunteers, we found. We would feed the kids a light supper (like a cold sandwich and piece of fruit) before the lessons and activities.

    Also, VBS now seems to all be themed, “out of the box” things – there was a camping theme one year, an outer-space theme another. That’s new. When I was a kid the theme was pretty much “God loves you” and “Come and learn about Jesus” and there were a lot fewer bells and whistles, but then again, there wasn’t cable tv and the internet to compete with.

    I think I still have the little felt “Bible without words” we made one year – different colored pages in the progression of “how you tell the story” (black for sin, red for Jesus’ blood, white for being washed clean, gold for the hope of the “Golden streets” of Heaven…and the covers were green, I forget what the green was for)
