Kids flock to Vacation Bible School Programs

Vacation Bible SchoolFull of hands-on Bible explorations using skits, songs and stories, interactive games, cool crafts and delicious treats, Vacation Bible School (VBS) is designed to give kids a memorable summer experience that conveys a gospel message.

A summer tradition for almost a century, VBS was originally begun by a doctor’s wife, Mrs. Walter Aylett Hawes, who wanted to get kids off the street in New York, and it has been adopted by many churches as a way to engage young children with the word of God in a fun and enjoyable way that helps them learn to overcome obstacles with the power of God.

Often a five-day program geared for children ranging from preschool through 5th grade, VBS is also a fantastic volunteer opportunity. Churches always need teens and adults to help out, so this summer make sure to sign your children up for VBS program near you. Here is a small sampling of VBS programs offered in South Florida churches.
