Editor’s Note: We understand that many churches are not currently meeting due to COVID-19. With the uncertainty of when shelter-in-place orders will be lifted, consider ways to incorporate these invitations into your current practices. Try integrating these into the slides that run on your live stream prior to the start of your online service.
Consider adding a one-liner to your church bulletin each Sunday for a month or two before VBS. Switch up your bulletin covers once or twice, using the Big Fish Bay bulletin to draw more attention to VBS. Here are 12 one-liners to use or adapt:
