Try This: VBS Prep Day

The weekend before VBS starts, invite your church to come and help get the campus ready for the week ahead.

The Coastlands Aptos Foursquare Church in Aptos, California, does a prep day on the Saturday before VBS starts to get their campus ready. They tell people, “Bring a friend, a happy heart and a sense of humor!” There’s fresh coffee when people arrive and a free lunch before people leave. And for their 2014 VBS, Hope City in High Point, North Carolina, threw a “prep party”—inviting people to an evening of set painting and craft making.
