(4/15 Update) Free eBook with 4 Ways to do VBS in Covid-19 era- Since posting the blog (linked below), LifeWay has had a great response from many churches on using one of the 4 strategies they recommend. Check out their latest update that is now available as a free eBook to download and share with your VBS Planning team. We strongly encourage you to consider staying the course and plan to host VBS later this summer.  Yes, it will probably look different than anything VBS you have done before, but the Great Commission hasn’t changed due to Covid-19.  And the evangelistic potential of VBS is stronger than ever.
