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 are treated to a hands-on experience with all the material, actually see decoration ideas and suggestions, take part in a scaled down version of the VBS Worship Rally and enjoy a dinner provided by the Association. With the arrival of Covid-19, Vacation Bible School has had to take many different forms (when it wasn’tcanceled altogether!). We are closely monitoring developments and possibilities and will continue to do all we can to help our churches provide quality, life changing, VBS to their communities. More info willadded soon so check back often.
