Vacation Bible school is one of the greatest ways to spread God’s word and love. Mmany companies exist to supply you with curriculum and material at a price, but why not create your own curriculum and materials and use that outside expense for other outreaches? While there nothing wrong with purchasing VBS material from outside vendors (and many good ones exist), but by creating your own you can customize the experience to your church and audience and tap that potential within your own church. We will teach you and give you resources to accomplish this, creating an outline to perform your own VBS either in person or virtually.
Optional live sessions will be recorded for future reference.
This course is eligible for 1.0 CEU.
