showcase logoEven though the New Year just started, it is never too soon to start thinking about VBS. Over the next few weeks, Cokesbury will be hosting five very exciting VBS Showcases at churches in your area. They will be an opportunity for local Christian educators to gather together and share ideas. We will discuss how to promote your VBS and where to find advertising materials. We will share how to go about volunteer recruitment and the best ways to train newcomers.

Finally, we will talk about what works….

  • to organize your VBS
  • to keep the kids excited
  • to get them to bring their friends
  • and most important, what works to make VBS a meaningful experience that will transform lives.

Each showcase will offer opportunities to examine over a dozen VBS Starter kits from your favorite publishers. Come watch the videos, listen to the music and ask questions about what Cokesbury is offering for the 2015 VBS season.
