The coronavirus has caused the church to adapt. In addition to no in-person worship, Sunday school, and small groups, now churches will need to adapt due to no in-person Vacation Bible School (VBS). VBS is the peak of the summer for many churches. It is an opportunity to disciple the children of the church and the community.
But, in-person VBS is likely not going to happen.
In the Virginia Conference of the United Methodist Church, for example, there will be no in-person VBS during stages 1 and 2. There may be other denominational leaders making similar decisions. Or, maybe your local church has already started thinking about how to do VBS differently this summer.
When it comes to evangelism, there is one thing we know: People come to know Jesus through relationships with Christians. Nathanael came to know Jesus because his friend Philip said, “Come and see” (John 1:43-51). Because of Philip, Nathanael met Jesus and became a follower.
It is because of you and me that others will know the amazing love and grace that is found in Jesus Christ. But first, we have to open ourselves to be in relationship with others. Here are 4 ideas for building relationships.
