Kelly’s Comments: Since I attend the Methodist church, I figured I’d exercise the ol’ website owner’s privilege and feature the local Methodist VBSs first. (Don’t worry, other faiths–yours are coming.) Vacation Bible School…what a great time! Your kids get to learn about the love of Christ in a safe, fun environment, and the price can’t be beat! Of course, if you have the time, it’s always awesome if you can volunteer to help behind-the-scenes at VBS, whether by teaching classes, serving snacks, acting as clean-up crew, etc. Have middle- or high-school kids? The little ones love it when the youth help with VBS, and it looks great on the ol’ college applications!
