Last Minute Tips Before Your VBS Week Begins

Ocean Commotion VBS weeks have started across the USA and around the world! We have already heard reports of kids diving into the amazing history of Noah and the Flood. Here are some last-minute tips to make this your best VBS ever!

Continue to Pray for VBS, Children, and Volunteers

Prayer should be at the forefront of anything you do with VBS. Remember that God is in control and that we can do nothing apart from Him. Ask that He would prepare the hearts of the children attending and that He would use the volunteers for His glory to build His kingdom.

Drama, Music, and Lesson Rehearsal

Rehearsing the skits and songs for VBS is a beneficial way to get everyone on the same page before sharing with the children. Drama team practice will improve line memorization, work out any miscues, and get the team accustomed to working together. The music team reaps the same benefits as they work on learning the hand motions and words to the awesome VBS music from the contemporary and traditional music formats.

But What about the Bible Lesson?

Ocean Commotion VBS shows students the truth of God’s Word in many exciting ways. This requires a significant preparation on the teacher’s part but will lead to children having a better understanding of the content. As the teacher, consider teaching through the lesson on your own before you begin leading the children so that you fully understand the content and format. The more comfortable you are in presenting, the more the kids enjoy and respond to the material!

Use #AnswersVBS and #OceanCommotion Hashtags on Social Media Platforms

Whether you are looking for ideas, willing to share ideas, or you just want to see how God is working through Ocean Commotion across the globe, use the hashtags of #AnswersVBS and #OceanCommotion to share and search on social media platforms. We are blessed to already see an impact and look forward to hearing your stories too!

Order Any Last-Minute Supplies

Need some follow-up postcards? A scene setter for the hallway? Fun giveaways for children that bring friends?

Order immediately to ensure that you have everything you need before VBS starts. Remember that you can get all seven scene setters for the price of four, using the promo code 1605VBS16 through the end of June.

We hope you have a great week of sharing the love of Christ with the kids as they learn more about and draw closer to Him.
