Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a great opportunity for churches to share the gospel with children. It is also a prime event for community outreach too. Kids are excited to attend, parents are looking forward to being kid-free, and church leaders are inspired to make a difference. One of the goals of VBS is to create a safe environment where kids can learn about Jesus and have fun! That’s why it’s important to do volunteer screening and background checks prior to starting your summer kids’ program.
Easter is one of the biggest Sundays of the year for churches. But, because of the long weekend, it’s often a time when families choose to travel or visit family elsewhere. Or they may not be able to make it to your church building due to weather, sickness, or other unforeseen reasons. (Or a global pandemic that we will never forget). So, instead of accepting that they won’t be able to engage with you on this important Sunday, what if you set up a church live stream so they could tune in wherever they are?

Are you ready to celebrate the greatest event in all of history? The resurrection of Jesus Christ. Though Easter celebrations around the world have become more commercialized and full of candy and bunnies, Resurrection Sunday is extremely important in Christian churches. It is a day commemorating Jesus’ resurrection after His crucifixion and death. Jesus having victory over sin and the grave has great implications for us. That’s probably why churches have many religious Easter traditions. They want to celebrate who Jesus is and what He has done. And they want to share that good news with other people.
With pink and red and hearts everywhere you turn, Valentine’s Day must be on the horizon. Love is in the air and many are watching TV to catch up on all the sappy stories.
