VBS 2009 Options

In the world of Children’s Pastor’s VBS is a stinkin’ big deal. Every year the VBS big wigs reveal their carefully thought out themes, competing for the top pick, hoping to be the theme that all the churches will be excited about. Usually Group Publishing releases the best of the best. Then there is Lifeway, Standard and Gospel Light, who all have really great ideas and themes. We need help choosing this year’s VBS, and I was hoping to get some feedback. Please take the poll below, based on the title/theme vote for the VBS that you think sounds the best.

  1. Hi Kate!

    I voted for the Prayer one.
    My reasoning is simple:
    1.) Jesus said that His house is a house of prayer for all nations.
    2.) We are to pray without ceasing
    3.) Kid’s have small bodies but big spirits and need to be trained in hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit for themselves! (I personally think that this would revolutionize the church in America if it happened on a large scale)
    4.) We are the dwelling place of the Living God and so we personally are houses of prayer. That’s kind of crazy if you think about it.
    5.) In the past year there has been an explosion of houses of prayer starting globally with many, many ministries, missions organizations and colleges at the forefront of it. I believe that we are going to see worship and prayer continue to explode in the church globally in the next decade or two as that is a BIG part of the the Holy Spirit is doing in the church right now.

    Kate and Dustin,

    I know I pick on you a lot out of fun and goofiness, but I just wanted to say that we appreciate you and Dustin for all you do in the Children’s department. It feels like forever since I’ve been in Children’s on Wednesday night and I miss it!! Maybe I’ll come back and help sometime (once we figure out what we’re doing) but I just wanted to encourage you guys to keep pressin’ on, lovin’ the kiddos, and following God’s will for your life! I know VBS takes ALOT of prep work, but VBS is such a pivotal and vital tool that ministers to kids and families (much like summer camp for teens). We’ll be praying for you guys as you all plan out VBS for the spring/summer/whenever-you-do-it!! SMILE 🙂
