We’ve had many requests for some additional help in creating the tree house featured in our Worship Rally set. So grab your copy of Decorating Made Easy and let’s take a closer look together. The supply lists and diagrams you’ll need are on pages 24-25. The diagram on page 25 is also available on the CD-ROM included in Decorating Made Easy so that you can project and trace the panels using a digital or overheard projector. Feel free to simplify and freehand as needed.
Decide whether you want your tree house to be freestanding, propped up against a wall, or painted directly onto a backdrop. We chose to make ours freestanding using two 4-by-8-foot panels of 2-inch rigid insulation foam as rear supports. Check out how it all came together!
September 1, 1924 was a big day in the history of Vacation Bible School. It was the official start of LifeWay’s VBS Ministry Department. The department as such no longer exist, but the ministry of publishing VBS curriculum and training church leaders to use it is bigger and better than ever.
From time to time, over the next year, I’m going back to the archives to not only honor our past but to glean insight and wisdom from the ages.
Today’s wisdom comes from a 1997 training outline titled: 62 Ways to Prepare Yourself for A Galactic Good News Adventure. While some of the ideas were specific to the theme, here are six reminders that apply every year.
2. Learn the Worship Rally music in advance by listening to its while running errands and picking up VBS supplies.
3. Enlist someone to be your personal VBS prayer partner.
4. Pray for the children, youth, and adults who will accept Jesus as Savior and Lord during VBS.
5. Ask someone who became a Christian during a previous VBS to share his/her story with you.
6. Keep a “To Do List” handy to jot down middle-of-the-night inspirations.
