Most churches commit a set amount of their children’s ministry budget to pay for vacation bible school. The main expenses are VBS curriculum, craft supplies, advertising, and decorations.

I just found a few new Vacation Bible School ideas on the Guildcraft VBS blog. Their post is titled Budget-saving ideas for VBS and offers some good advice. Like all things VBS, starting early makes much more possible. Now is the time to stretch the budget.
