Thank you for another excellent webinar. I have been involved in organizing VBS for many years, but there were several points that were either new (contacting the publisher for churches to which I can pass materials) or were excellent reminders (social media rules). What a wonderful resource! Congratulations on the good work and sharing of so many wonderful ideas via webinar.
