This discussion about "VBS in the Year of the Coronavirus" was kicked off by Nancy Eubanks (seen below). We are expanding it to include other ideas about Summer VBS.
Keep in mind that at the time of posting, "how long" quarantine is or was going to last, and "how many" would be permitted to gather in one place may have still been unsettled questions in the STATE and community where each person lives.
Feel free to offer your thoughts, questions, and requests for help, and to return here with your plans.
During an online staff meeting a couple of weeks ago (in early March), one of my colleagues asked if I had thought about canceling VBS. I burst into tears. At that point, it had not yet entered my mind and the thought was painful, but I am realizing that it is something I'm going to have to "wrestle" with soon. Of course, I realize that there are MUCH more important situations and painful losses that loved ones are enduring at this time.
You are a group of respected Christian educators, and I would love to hear your thoughts on going forward (or not) with VBS this summer.
Thank you for your reflections on the subject!
