Think outside the box. Why not move your VBS program to a local park? Kids congregate at the park during summer months and this is a great opportunity to reach kids that otherwise wouldn’t attend. Contact your local government well in advance to gain permission to use the park. Promote the event by handing out invitations in the neighborhood in the weeks leading up to your event. Purchase a banner to advertise the date and times. Develop a registration system so that you can gain the contact information for the kids that participate. At the closing of the VBS, invite these kids and their families to your church if they don’t already have a local church.
