2018 VBS Starter Kits

Posted by Havaleh Havelka on March 8, 2018

A list of all VBS starter kits available for summer 2018. This year, VBS kits will be checked out for 45 days at a time. We recommend that you preview a kit this spring to make your shopping lists for decorations, crafts, snacks, etc. then return the kit until you need it for summertime.

When it comes time for your VBS, we recommend scheduling your reservation to start three weeks prior to VBS. This will give you time to pass out leader guides before the event, then allows two weeks in shipping time to get the kit back to the Resource Center.
