Dear VBS Volunteers,
The ironic thing about writing this is you probably will be so busy with making sure everything runs smoothly that you won’t have time to read it. Organizing and planning for VBS is so hard for so many reasons. Most of us have other responsibilities outside of church which means we have to put those on hold for a while to do this. To add insult to injury, your hours of attention to detail, study, and delivery will go largely unappreciated and unrecognized by the average attendee. But you still do it because you love these kids and because you want them to grow a deeper relationship with Jesus; and that’s why I love you. I know all this can be frustrating, but remember our Lord’s admonition in Matthew 6:6: “But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” Remember, you may not receive the credit you deserve here and now, but you will receive more than you deserve in heaven.
In Jesus’ love,
