For many years we have assumed that the biggest week of VBS is the first full week of June. I have referred to it more than once in this blog and during training sessions. So many indicators have given validity to my assumptions that I have easily convinced others that more churches conduct VBS the first week of June than any other week.
However, data gleamed from Church VBS Reports tells a very different story. I was recently surprised to learn that the single largest week of VBS – at least in 2014 – was not the first full week of June, but the fourth week of June. Who would have thought it?
Here’s a breakdown of schools by month and week*.
Why people choose the weeks and schedules they do has always interested me. So, the questions is, why do you choose the week for VBS you choose? I look forward to hearing from you.
