Vacation Bible School Is A Big Deal

In The ARVBA!

Without question, VBS is still the most effective tool for evangelism in the modern church’s arsenal.  Studies show that as many as 80% of those who ever accept Christ’s salvation do so BEFORE the age of 13.  And Vacation Bible School just happens to be designed to appeal to that very demographic! It is for this very reason the ARVBA commits so much passion and energy to the VBS Equipping Ministry.  Each year we host one of the few Associational Vacation Bible School Clinics in the state. By the time the clinic rolls around, our team has already been to the annual ‘sneak-peek’ hosted by Lifeway Christian Resources.  They have studied the material, noted any changes to style and/format, pre- ordered samples of the current year’s resources and constructed VBS ‘props’ for our churches to share. Clinic attendees were treated to a hands-on experience with all the material, actually saw decoration ideas and suggestions, took part in a scaled down version of the VBS Worship Rally and enjoyed a dinner provided by the Association. PLUS, there is always this added bonus! Order VBS Material through the Association office and shipping is free! The link to the left will open an Excel order sheet (the same one included in your VBS Kit) that can be filled out and sent to the office for processing.  For those without Excel, The link to the right will open a pdf file that can be printed and filled out by hand.  Mrs. Tena is always available to help with with any questions you might have about your order AND she is a great source of information and advice about props, decorations, snack ideas from other churches, etc.
