We chose to send our kids to VBS while we were on vacation. We tend to travel the same time of year that our home church hosts VBS, so having to miss our home church, we try to find one so the kids can still get the experience! I have an advantage here, because I grew up in this neighborhood…so I have known the pastors and leaders for many years. I respect them and know their love for Jesus and children is of highest priority. The teaching is solid and I know my children will hear Bible stories, missionary stories and learn some wonderful Christian songs. (they EVEN sound Christian!!! ) SO, find a church in the area you are visiting, find out if they are having a VBS, attend with your kids if allowed, or volunteer to help out. You will hear some great stories and learn some fun songs! I have found that most churches will allow you to sit in on the group sessions if you ask. They may not allow you to volunteer without a background check or being a member of their church, so some other options, enjoy coffee out with your spouse , do some Bible reading or leisure reading on your own at a nearby park. Possibly plan to visit with your friends who don’t have children during these two-three hour programs. Your kids will get some much needed Bible teaching and you will get some much needed time to re-group and take care of yourself, your marriage, and your other friendships!
Our kids had a wonderful time at International Spy Academy!
We were so blessed to attend VBS at Arvada Baptist Church in Colorado! Thanks to them for a blessed week! Visit there if your ever in town! They are a welcoming church family! (Tell them I sent you!)
