Two possible ways to use VBS to reach children this year: First, have home VBS. Have each parent plan a VBS for his or her neighborhood. The Church can provide the materials; maybe even a zoom Bible story & parents provide the location and invite the students. This would work for parents looking for a way to help their children as they are staying at home. Second, plan a church-wide VBS for Thanksgiving or Christmas breaks from school.
VBS is still the most effective evangelism strategy used in Southern Baptist Churches.
