A Backyard Bible Club is a lot like a Vacation Bible School, except they meet in backyards and parks in neighborhoods across Brookings. Instead of having parents and children come to us to hear the gospel, we want to go out to them!
Summer presents a strategic opportunity for outreach. The days are long, kids are restless, and parents are desperate for activities to engage their families. And while hosting activities at a church campus may be the most common way to engage kids and adults with the good news, many of those who come are already churched or have ample opportunity to hear the gospel. But by sending the traditional activities of VBS to backyards, park playgrounds, and shaded picnic tables, churches take the gospel to kids and families who are unchurched and perhaps hearing the good news of Jesus for the first time.
It is our mission, then, to GO! We want to go out into neighborhoods and share the good news of Jesus while blessing our community! Join us June 24th through June 28th at a Backyard Bible Club near you!
