I remember growing up attending Shades Mountain Baptist Church and Vestavia Hills United Methodist Church's VBS every summer. They each had a different theme.
Parents should bring their children to VBS for three reasons:
1). God holds parents responsible for the spiritual upbringing of their children. It's a sin for Christian parents to keep their children out of church. An eleven year old can't drive, how will she attend church? Even if mom and dad don't teach biblical truths to their children, they can at least bring them to church and allow someone else to teach them.
2). Daniel Ausbun and Wendy Moore are passionate about children's ministry. Isn't it exciting that children can get saved. 90% of all people who will ever get saved, will do so before they're 19 years old. 75% will decide to follow Christ before they're 15 years old. This means if your son or daughter doesn't get saved by the time they're out of high school, most likely they never will. One-fourth of all baptisms in the Southern Baptist Convention are a direct result from VBS. Vacation Bible School is essentially a week-long children's revival.
3). VBS is fun. Wendy Moore and her leadership team use a fun and creative approach to sharing the Gospel. From the penny war, pie-in-the-face, water balloon fight, costumes, candy, Papa John's Pizza - children have fun while learning about the Lord.
