I personally think Vacation Bible School (VBS) is very important. As it can reach many kids and gives them a lot of Biblical training in a week. A great way to reach the community is through the children in the community. That just might reach the parents! If your church is thinking about stopping VBS, I encourage you to keep on, keep on. If your church is thinking about starting a VBS. I would say go for it! Also check out when other churches are doing theirs, so you don’t complete with them. Very few churches even offer an adult vbs class.
