Vacation Bible School (VBS) in Collin County

Have you made your VBS plans yet?

Vacation Bible School

Disclaimer: We aim to update this post with updated Vacation Bible School information as we get it. We recommend you contact the Churches directly for details this Summer 2022.

Summertime is here.

There are several churches around town that put on a great week of vacation bible school (VBS) for children ages preschool through 5th-6th grades.

Some ages vary so read their guidelines before booking.

Older children can serve as volunteers and help out.

VBS is a great option for parents because it’s very affordable (some are even FREE!!!)  and kids can learn a lot and have fun!


Here are some awesome places for VBS in Collin County near Plano and Frisco for the Summer of 2022.

What images pop into your head when you hear the words Vacation Bible School?

Do you have fond memories, or are you wondering what is VBS? Vacation Bible School is a summer church outreach focused on giving kids a fun and creative place to learn about the Bible and to build relationships with churches and other kids in the area.

If Vacation Bible School has been a great experience for you as a child or adult (or both!), you are probably smiling.

Some may think of VBS as “old school” or not an event for your style of ministry. You might think VBS is OK, but you feel pressure because you need an event that sets your church apart from others in your area.

What Is the Purpose of VBS?

Many people may wonder what the purpose of Vacation Bible School is and if it’s still relevant. The answer is actually very simple: the purpose of VBS is to minister to children in the church, create outreach to the surrounding communities, and create evangelism opportunities. This purpose is supported by a creative theme of Bible study, activities, worship, and even time for some tasty snacks.

Vacation Bible School in Collin County, Texas offers a chance to pull out all the stops and create an unforgettable experience. Research shows connections made during VBS result in salvation, a discovery of church prospects and potential workers for other ongoing children’s programs.

Also, it is not uncommon for a leader to volunteer to help for “just one week of VBS,” and feel God’s tug on his or her heart to work with kids permanently.

Vacation Bible School Creates Lasting Memories

VBS is a special event that creates memories that help lock Bible truths in a child’s heart and mind for a lifetime. Birthday parties and other special events have themes that use creativity to evoke feelings of excitement. Games, food, decorations, and fun all link together in a total package. VBS does the same thing.

When we connect with kids through this ministry, the biblical truths that permeate all aspects of VBS also connect with their hearts and minds.

The biblical content built into the curriculum lays foundational truths that help kids understand who Jesus is and why they need a personal Savior. The relationships you develop with kids and their families can provide many opportunities to not only show the love of Jesus but to share the truth of the gospel.

Don’t forget as the weather heats up we have a list of the best splash parks in Collin County and the Kid-Friendly Things to do in Dallas.
