Pause, Breath and Rethink. You've Still Got This!
God has called us for such a time as this.
Right now, the kids in your church need fun, life and connection. It’s essential that in this season the church steps up and serves as a light for families.
With that in mind, more than ever before, this is the summer that the church needs VBS. Don’t quit or give up hope on your summer VBS plans. Just because we are staying home due to COVID-19, doesn’t mean that ministry or our planning should stop. It’s safe to say, due to the current world events, VBS will likely look different this summer. But it is so important for you to offer it to your church families to keep hope alive and to create excitement. If VBS doesn’t work with your originally scheduled dates or plans, we urge you to think creative instead of canceled.
Come July and August our kids will be over screen time, homeschooling will be gone for summer break, parents will be weary and all of us will be ready for face to face interactions after social distancing. In our current world so much can change in 30 days, let alone one day. But there soon will be a day when things start changing for the better and we need to be prepared for it.
Right now none of us has every answer, the Concordia Supply team included. Our team, much like you, is continually in process and sorting through the ever changing information. Through it all, we are here for you, to encourage you, to share our heart for VBS and to affirm that no matter how VBS looks this year, you are going to make an incredible impact on the Kingdom.
We are all in this together.
If at any point in time you feel stuck and are looking for direction, please reach out to our team by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be happy to schedule a call with you.
Over the next five weeks we are committed to partnering with you through this new VBS planning process. We have been scouring the web, talking with the best VBS publishers and chatting with brilliant VBS directors about what’s next. We have taken everything we’ve learned and have broken them down into five VBS bite-sized planning milestones.
Ready to get started? Let’s plan your best VBS yet.
