Our DIY VBS presentation and discussion was led by Beth Tobin, a creative VBS and Rotation Model veteran. Beth is the Children's Minister at the Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Olympia, Washington. She's also their children's music director and a member of the Board. Beth was joined by fellow Director of Children's Ministry and VBS creator Debbie Fisher at St Alban's Episcopal Church in Cape Elizabeth, Maine.

In addition to discussing how and why they like to create their own Vacation Bible School curriculum and experience each year, Beth and Debbie shared many of the resources they like to use, and how they tailor their VBS to their church's kids, teachers, and community.

Whether you like to "write your own" or simply "improve the VBS your church bought," this seminar will give you a lot of great ideas.

Resource links and a video-recording of the event
are available to Supporting Members.

See a FREE summary of the seminar here.

Don't miss the recap of our January 10 Zoom Coffee Chat

on Lent and Holy Week Sunday School Lessons and Ideas!

Our Zoom group of children's educators, teachers, parents, and pastors shared over three dozen fresh and creative ideas and lesson resources for celebrating Lent and Holy Week with children.

Our focus was Sunday School, but we also had some great ideas for special event programming and family ministry. After we heard and discussed some great ideas, lessons, and resources from a group of presenters, we opened the floor to more ideas and discussion, and those ideas are shared at the link as well.

The summary of this Zoom Coffee Chat is available to all our free registered members. Some resources are available only to our Supporting Members (a bargain at $45/year!).

Thank you for your support!
