Age-Level classrooms Some churches prefer an age-level classroom format, with age-level groups working in one room with one teacher for most activities. If this format is a better fit for your church, the Preschool/Kindergarten Leader and Elementary Classroom Leader provide all the help you need, from the Bible story to crafts and snacks. Age-appropriate student pieces focus the story at just the right age level.

Create your own workshop! Or, create a program that fits your needs exactly! You might begin each session in the classroom using the Bible Storyteller to present the Bible story and complete one or more activities. Then, travel with your class through activity centers for crafts, music, and more, where leaders with special interests can direct the activity. This will help add a new level of excitement to your VBS program.
