I'm the ministry coordinator at my church. I have been working at this church since August so this is the first time I will be helping out with the VBS program. At the church I attended before this one we always have done a VBS Sunday with the whole congregation and those who attended VBS.
How many of you do that? I'm trying very hard to convince those involved that we should host a VBS Sunday, but so far there's been only negative feedback. The most common comment being that it will be poorly attended since it's summer and vacation time. I have tried to assure them that even if only one family from the community walks through the doors on a Sunday, then that is a huge blessing!
I have been trying to find some examples of a worship service, and though there are plenty of videos, most involve a pastor leading a sermon. . . which brings me to my next issue. Our pastor will be on holidays the Sunday after VBS and many feel that that will make it also difficult to host a VBS service, especially since we are having trouble finding pulpit supply for that Sunday. So, have any of your churches hosted a VBS Sunday where there really wasn't a sermon, but maybe it was a VBS sing, with scripture reading, or skits or something along those lines?
Any creative ideas out there? I really see hosting a VBS Sunday as a great outreach opportunity, and any ideas would be helpful.
