Are you the VBS “Last Minute Leader”?
Most people who are leaders do more than one thing at a time, making their lives hectic and in need of help. They are also the people that get things done. If you are one of these “Last Minute Leaders” and you are leading VBS this summer, we’ve got help for you.
Thanks to the Ministry-to-Children blog, there is a free, downloadable VBS theme for you to use. Read more.

One of our readers, Tara Merrill, wanted to share this vacation bible school material. I was really impressed when she sent me the files. I could tell right away that put her heart into writing this curriculum. Here is how she described it in a comment on our site. Be sure to leave a message at the bottom of this page to let her know you appreciate her efforts.
I am 22 years old trying to follow God’s call in my life. I believe He is leading me to write low-cost, Scripture-driven VBS programs. By His grace and will, I wrote one this summer centering on the armor of God passage found in Ephesians 6:11-18. It is a full program and can be adapted for any church size, as long as people are willing to volunteer. I provide craft and snack ideas, but do not include the actual materials as I believe it is cheaper to purchase the necessary items in one’s own hometown. I also provide drama scripts and dialog to help guide the leaders.
