Sneak Peek . . . Vacation Bible School 2012 - Sky from Group Publishing!

Sky - 2012 Easy VBSThis week I'll be taking a look at Vacation Bible School 2012 - yes I said, 2012! I'm surprised by how early the publishers are releasing their themes for the following year's VBS - this is certainly the earliest release ever! While it could be tempting to see a theme and pre-order your kit for next year, I strongly encourage you to wait until the kits are actually available to make your decision. It is very possible you'll end up using the resources from the publisher you are familiar with, but wait until you can see the kits and read reviews . . . know your vision and purpose for your VBS and choose the materials which best fit your ministry and needs. Without actually reading complete reviews and sitting down with actual kits how can you possibly know which kit is your best fit?

Having said this, I look forward to sharing a sneak peek at several 2012 VBS themes . . . hopefully this will help you have a better idea of which kits you want to review more closely in January when you are looking for your best fit for Summer 2012!
