2011 VBS Timeline: 5-6 Months Before Your VBS

Welcome to the new year! It's not too early to begin planning for your 2011 Vacation Bible School program. After all, summer will come sooner than we think.

Here are some things to begin doing now in preparation for your 2011 VBS. First, start praying. You may want to organize a prayer team to start praying for potential leaders and workers for your VBS. Then set a budget. Take a look at all the VBS options available and start deciding which ones look best for your church and community. Start choosing VBS Starter Kits to preview. Visit Shop VBS to select several kits to preview for 30 days, risk free. Starter Kits have already started shipping and will continue to ship in January.

Click on the VBS Planning Timeline below to see the larger and expanded view. Print a copy for each of your VBS team members.

When you order your VBS Starter Kit from Shop VBS, you 'll receive FREE Classroom Decorations plus a FREE book download, "Learning About God" for Grades 1-2. You'll also receive up to $150 of coupons when you order by April 30, 2011. Visit Shop VBS to listen to music and video clips, see the daily Bible lessons and Bible points, and download a VBS Comparison Chart we've put together to help you decide which program(s) you'd like to review.

Here are some Vacation Bible School coupons you can use over at Shop VBS. 
Coupons Expire 4-30-11.

I love your chart! This is a great reminder that Vacation Bible School planning happens year-round, not just during summer!

I posted a link to this post on my blog I (Heart) Children's Ministries.

Thank you for sharing this - blessings to you!

Thanks, Chelsea! Sometimes it feels like VBS planning never ends. As soon as we finish one year we're starting on the next. Glad this chart can be helpful. Blessings to your ministry!
