Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School. Those three words conjure up wonderful memories for millions of people. Ask an adult that attended VBS as a child and you will invoke stories of songs and crafts, fun and games, and Bible stories about God’s love and creation. VBS is a wonderful ministry and the fruit of it lives long in the lives of those that attend.
Birchman, like many other churches, endeavor to make VBS a highlight of the summer months in their children’s ministry. VBS is staffed, funded, bathed in prayer, and protected to help ensure it yields maximum impact upon those young lives that attend.
Sadly, however, some churches have suspended offering VBS or reduced its scope because of the difficulty of getting sufficient workers to staff the event. Understandably, securing workers is a challenge particularly with the changing demographics of family life and work. Yet the reward is worth the extra effort. There is no elixir that brings greater satisfaction than to witness firsthand the joy of a child learning about Jesus.
