I know you’re busy making plans for VBS 17 now and here’s one important question I have for you – what plans have you made for your VBS Missions Offering? Years ago almost every Vacation Bible School in the country gave their VBS Missions Offering through the Cooperative Program. But over the years churches began to give it to other missions, mission trips, or local needs. I would ask that you consider giving through the Cooperative Program once again and at the same time teach the children at your VBS a little about what the Cooperative Program is all about. To make that task a little easier we have five videos that highlight different ministries that are supported by The Cooperative Program. You can show a different video each day of your VBS. These videos are short to hold children’s attention, but will help them understand some of the ministries supported by CP. We also have a short “Thank You Clip” made by the Georgia Baptist Mission Board Staff to show our appreciation. This would be a great clip to show at your Family Night Service. If you have trouble downloading the videos and would like a copy of a DVD with the videos on there, please feel free to contact our office.
Play these videos each day as you take up your VBS offering and educate your VBS participants on the value of giving to the Cooperative Program. You may play them in any order, but titles suggest a recommended sequence.
