There’s nothing quite like the feeling of summer. School is out and the sun is shining. Everybody wants to soak up the light of summer!
Unfortunately, that also means that many Christian families get out of their church routines. Picnics and pool parties fill up the calendars and families may not leave enough time to fit in church. That’s why Vacation Bible School (VBS) is becoming more important than ever! Getting kids to church in the summer is difficult, but with a creative VBS theme and some affordable Christian gifts, you can make your VBS program the place to be this summer!
Christian Tools of Affirmation (CTA) has developed a VBS theme to remind kids that God Lights Our World (GLOW). The GLOW VBS theme features many of the Christian resources you need to run a successful VBS: children’s devotions, scripture pencils, scripture candy, kids sticker books, VBS goodie bags, drawstring backpacks, and much more. Some of these religious gifts even glow in the dark! Any of these items can be used to reinforce the VBS lesson of the day. Many churches also hang on to the VBS gifts and hand them out at the end of each day.
