KIDZMATTER.COM : The VBS Issue 2018
Article featuring our uniquely branded VBS program, SummerXP
... We decided to trust God and keep registration open throughout the week. Preregistered kids were assigned to a multi-grade-level group (3-5 kids per group). We then encouraged kids to invite friends throughout the week, and when their friends came, they were placed into the same group. God provided enough leaders for us to have the flexibility to keep Summer XP (eXPerience) open to any child who wanted to attend.
What tip would you give other churches for having a great VBS? Do what you can to be unique in your community—we call our program Summer XP (eXPerience) so it stands out from the other churches that do Vacation Bible School. Next year we are going to design and write our own curriculum too so that we are unique and hopefully draw in new kids.
I have enjoyed the NWO KidMid meetings as they are so very helpful for our Children’s Ministry. Becky leads us in prayer as we together discuss topics and ideas that we are able to take back monthly to our church. It is always so reassuring and comforting to know that others have a similar situation and many of the same challenges that I have. I love how we are able to share what is working so well with our children and families as well take time to reflect on areas we know that God is calling us to lead in a bigger way. Becky leads our meetings in such a thoughtful way each month. I have come to the meetings tired, worried, stressed, joyful, excited and I am always glad I took the time to attend. NWO KidMid has given me a place where I feel welcomed and that I belong. We all are in different places in our ministry but we are working to glorify God. NWO KidMin and the friendship that I have found with Becky is so special. I am grateful God lead me to NWO KidMin that is under Becky’s leadership.
