We asked one of our Reachout Churches to share how they brought VBS to their neighborhood in NYC, in order to help others interested in doing the same. Here’s their story:
“We are a small urban church in New York City in a neighborhood of Queens. Ours is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the world, with many different nationalities, cultures and religions represented in a dense urban area. Our church has never owned its own building, but has rented another church’s building for many years for our worship services, as well as a church office in another location. When we wanted to start doing Vacation Bible School, we had to make some significant changes to the full-day VBS model, but we have found that these variations have worked quite well with the Reachout Adventures VBS materials. We have used Reachout Adventures for the last three years in a row to do an evening week-long Vacation Bible Club in a local playground during the summer months.
