Fill your calendar with eternal impact.
As you begin to schedule your 2019 kids ministry activities, you may take a moment to ask yourself, "Is VBS worth it?" It's a valid question. The time, energy, and money you invest in VBS is substantial.
To help you make up your mind about this summer's VBS, consider this:
- For most churches, VBS is the most evangelistic event of the year, providing various moments to connect with unchurched families in your community.
- 95% of American parents said participating in VBS was one of their child's most meaningful church experiences according to a survey conducted by LifeWay Research.
- The unique nature of VBS gives you an opportunity to involve your entire church and impact disciples of every age.
- In 2017, more than 65,000 salvation decisions were reported to LifeWay VBS.
Any event that requires extensive planning, volunteer recruitment, and a portion of your budget should be tested for whether or not it's worth it. After considering the facts above, we hope you'll make room on your ministry calendar for VBS. It's worth it.
