How to Adapt Answers VBS into a Three-Day VBS

Connect with Us:

Our Answers VBS programs are designed as a five-day VBS experience. But if you have limited time, volunteers, or space, that might not be possible for you. And that’s okay! You can adapt our VBS into a three-day program, and in different ways, to meet your individual needs.

You can adapt our VBS into a three-day program, and in different ways, to meet your individual needs.
  • One way to adapt it is to run your VBS morning and evening for two days, with a fifth session on either the morning or evening the third day. This allows you to cover all the material in a shorter timeframe and is advantageous if you are renting a facility or if your church is only available for limited time.
  • If you can only do one session each day, we suggest covering Day 1 of the VBS on the first day, doing a combo of Day 2 and 3 the second day, and finishing up with a combo of Day 4 and 5 on the third day.
  • You may also want to choose just three lessons to focus on: the first lesson, the gospel lesson, and another lesson of your choice that would best minister to your group.
  • Another alternative, if you’re shortening your VBS due to limited time or volunteers, is to change from a traditional morning VBS to an evening VBS. This allows church members who work during the day to still be able to volunteer.
