Easy VBS has a new setting every year. The look and feel is very contemporary. Cross Culture VBS explores a different country every summer and helps kids see the big picture—an exciting world of faith beyond their own backyard. Holy Land Adventure VBS takes a step back into the Bible. It has an old-world, Bible times look and feel. Weekend VBS is a shortened program (just 2 days and a closing show). This is designed for churches who are just getting into VBS, thinking of quitting, having trouble getting volunteers, or are such HUGE VBS fans that they need another program every year!

No. but, we highly recommend it! All of our programs are field tested in the real world, at a real church, with real kids—so we know it works! It’s like a recipe, if you start changing the ingredients it may not come out right.

We LOVE decorating! In your HLA and Easy VBS Starter Kits we have an entire DVD devoted to decorating. We also have lots of other fun ideas on VBS Tools, Facebook, and Pinterest. Be sure to follow us there.

We realize that each church's needs are different. Please contact us to discuss the unique factors surrounding your VBS so we can give you a recommendation that's tailored to your needs. Our team of experts are here to help you pull of the best VBS yet!
