10 WAYS VBS BLESSES GOD'S KINGDOM
John Dobbs

1. VBS brings a smile to the face of children. Matthew 19:14 "Jesus said, 
‘Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of 
Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”

2. VBS gives everyone a chance to serve. Matthew 20:29 "For even the 
Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life 
as a ransom for many.”

3. VBS teaches the Word of God to young hearts. Matthew 5:19 “But 
anyone who obeys God’s laws and teaches them will be called great in 
the Kingdom of Heaven.”

4. VBS reaches out to those who do not know about Jesus. Luke 19:10 
“For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”

5. VBS gives opportunity to glorify God using our diverse talents! 
Romans 12:6 “In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing 
certain things well….”

6. VBS demonstrates to our community that we love them. Galatians 
6:10 “Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good 
to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.”

7. VBS costs a lot. As we give extra to cover the costs we also are 
blessed. Luke 6:38 “Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to 
you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, 
running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will 
determine the amount you get back.”

8. VBS sows gospel seeds that promise a future harvest. Galatians 6:9 
So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we 
will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.

9. VBS may help a young person avoid troubles in life and choose wise 
paths. Proverbs 14:2 Those who follow the right path fear the Lord; 
those who take the wrong path despise him.

10. VBS makes the church beautiful. Romans 10:15 “How beautiful are 
the feet of messengers who bring good news!”
