Vacation Bible School Top Picks 2021

Lifelong Learning at Virginia Theological Seminary has offered Vacation Bible School reviews for more than 15 years. Beginning as an in-person “fair” and transitioning to an online-only presence in 2018, our department has spent countless hours assessing intensive, formative curricula so that hundreds of folks can rely on an authoritative assessment. This year our “top picks” are based on our intimate knowledge of the publishing companies and information from their websites.

To make sure your curriculum choice aligns with your communities theology, read about the publishers here.

Whether and how to do Vacation Bible School can be overwhelming, even as restrictions begin to be lifted. Our team, hosted by Building Faith Editor, Sarah Bentley Allred, and including experienced formation practitioners like Toni Luc and Imani Driskell, will offer about 15 minutes of content. The remaining time will be spent in conversation with participants about their specific needs, concerns, and ideas. Join in one of these collaborative workshops to truly work through how VBS might work in your own context.
