VBS 2019 may have just started in your neck of the woods, but the brilliant minds at Lifeway have been getting the ball rolling on their quest to make VBS 2020 the very best one yet! Earlier this afternoon I was anxiously awaiting their theme announcement on Facebook Live (shown on their Facebook page) and was ooh-ing and aah-ing at all of the magnificent fun it’s going to be!
If you’re a fan of the Lifeway curriculum, you’re probably uncovering some pretty amazing truths as you venture into the wilderness to discover some of Earth’s most marvelous creatures while learning about real life encounters with Jesus in the 2019 theme, In the Wild!
In 2020, we’ll be strapping on our tool belts and learning about Christ the cornerstone and how He is the foundation in which we should build our lives with the brand new theme, Concrete & Cranes!
They’ve already posted a teaser video, music that is SO fun and catchy, and a place to pre-order your Concrete & Cranes starter kit so you can get in on the action early! It comes in a cute construction bag, which I thought was really clever!
In the mean time, I’ve put together a few fun decor ideas (one of my favorite parts of VBS is all of the funky and fun decor!) to help you get your mind rolling about how you want to set the scene at your church for VBS 2020!
Keep in mind: Many items shared here are from Amazon (you know how I feel about my beloved 2 day shipping) and many items are from Oriental Trading, who each year does an OUTSTANDING job of keeping VBS supplies relevant to the yearly theme. I will make a note of where each item is listed in case you have a preference of where to order. Oriental Trading frequently has free shipping deals, most often on orders over $49.
PLEASE Pass On The VBS Love:
After your VBS has come to an end, please reach out to a fellow church in your area to see if they could use any of your leftover VBS supplies. Many churches (often small congregations) elect to not have a VBS each year because funding is too tight. Just think about all of the additional children that could be presented with the gospel because donated items made VBS at a church possible!
