How long should Vacation Bible School last?
This week, we have another brief testimonial from a student who has attended a number of Vacation Bible Schools over the years, and who has now enjoyed returning as a photographer or fill-in helper.
I think that one week seems to be way too short of a time. Even two weeks seem short enough. After about a week I think that the children coming really start to get “warmed up”; then on the second week they start to feel like they belong at the church.
At a new church I would tend to feel skeptical at first, but as time went by if the truth was taught I would start believing what I heard as the spirit worked on me. This is another reason that I think two weeks are important.
