This summer, your VBS can help change the world
By having the kids in your church's Vacation Bible School take part in supporting one or more of the important mission projects below, you’ll teach them the power of generosity, inspire them to reach out to others in need and empower them to make an eternal difference around the world through global mission.
These giving opportunities are perfect for VBS—but you don’t have to stop there. Feel free to share these projects during other summer church events and programs, or invite your entire congregation to participate!
