10. Last but not least... Do you think your VBS-like program is worth the effort?

This is a loaded question! Select the answer that most closely resembles your thoughts, and please feel free to add additional comments in the "explanation" question.  

 

In the middle of all the preparations and perspiration, we all wonder about cost vs benefit.

 

"Cost" can mean actual dollars or time spent.  "Benefit" is subjective as well. Some churches are looking for something to benefit their families during the summer, while others expecting to evangelize neighborhood kids or grow their church may see cost vs benefits differently.

Yes, definitely the effort is worth the benefits.
Sometimes I wonder if the effort is worth the results.
No. I don't think the effort is getting us the results we hope for.
