WEEK 1
This week is all about numbers. We’re going to be tackling the dreaded VBS budget as well as how to divide your kiddos up for VBS. If you’re not gifted in this area, it’s OKAY! We have a great spreadsheet to help you make the numbers work. And once you knock out these two important tasks, you’ll be able to make really wise decisions for the rest of the VBS Strategy Sessions!
