Answers VBS strives to be a flexible VBS that works for churches of any size, budget, or time constraint. Sometimes, when flipping through the Director’s Guide, directors feel slightly overwhelmed by all the crafts, games, science experiments, and so on that are provided. But rest assured: we don’t expect you to do everything!
Answers VBS strives to be a flexible VBS that works for churches of any size, budget, or time constraint.
Answers VBS has been specifically designed so that you can pick and choose which crafts or games look most appealing or that work best with your budget, materials already on hand, and time or volunteer constraints. Some churches choose to do only science experiments and no crafts; other churches choose a mix-and-match approach to the experiments and crafts, doing a craft one day and an experiment the next. Still other churches opt to shorten their rotation periods and add a music or missions time, or they combine missions and crafts into one rotation. This variety makes a flexible VBS that works for everyone because it’s easily adapted for large, small, long, or short programs.
In our Answers VBS Discussion Group on Facebook, several people mentioned that they increase the flexibility of Answers VBS by taking away the pressure to plan everything and find enough volunteers. Instead of doing VBS for five days in one week, they do one morning or evening each week for a month or even over the whole summer. An extended VBS can be an effective outreach over the summer or even during the school year (possibly offering parents a “date night” opportunity during the school year as well!).
However you choose to do your VBS, we hope you will consider using Answers VBS. It’s a unique blend of apologetics (faith defense teaching), biblical authority and worldview, and of course fun. It is easy-to-use, and churches and children love it!
