It may seem obvious that you would begin with prayer, but it can be easy to get ahead of ourselves. Doing VBS is a commitment of time, energy, resources, and takes many volunteers. You shouldn’t commit to it unless you have the support of the leadership of your church and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. If God is calling you to do VBS at your church, we recommend our Reach Out Adventures VBS Curriculum.
We like this curriculum because it makes VBS more manageable. This curriculum brings Scripture alive as each year you study different passages of Scripture in exciting ways. The fact that you cycle through the 4 themes in four years makes it fresh each year, but familiar when you do it again. Cycling through the themes also allows you to build a storehouse of resources for each of the themes: Olympics, mountain climbing, space, and the high seas. Reach Out Adventures takes children on a fun, gospel-centered adventure. Check it out with the links below.
