LifeWay to show VBS 'Worth It' in Birmingham

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- LifeWay Christian Resources will provide a free breakfast and screen an upcoming film during the 2019 Southern Baptist Convention Annual Meeting in Birmingham this June.

The topic at this year's LifeWay breakfast in Birmingham will be "It's Worth It: Uncovering How One Week Can Transform Your Church." Messengers will learn how this time-tested and statistically-supported Vacation Bible School ministry can continue to reach children and families with the Gospel.
 
The LifeWay breakfast topic, "It's Worth It: Uncovering How One Week Can Transform Your Church," will focus on the long-term impact of Vacation Bible School (VBS). Messengers will learn how this time-tested and statistically-supported ministry can continue to reach children and families with the Gospel.

A discussion panel of ministry leaders and experts will walk through findings from a new research project spanning several years -- and thousands of churches and leaders -- to provide insight on how VBS can help transform congregations, communities and generations.

The panel will feature Jana Magruder, director of LifeWay Kids; Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research); Landry Holmes, director of publishing of LifeWay Kids); Melita Thomas, LifeWay VBS and kids ministry specialist; and others.

The free breakfast event is scheduled for Tuesday, June 11, in the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex South Exhibit Hall. Doors open at 6:30 a.m., and the panel discussion will begin at 7 a.m. Each breakfast attendee will receive a free copy of LifeWay and B&H titles, including "Above All" by J.D. Greear, "Creating a Discipleship Pathway" by Michael Kelley and "It's Worth It" by Landry Holmes.

Breakfast seats are limited, so advanced reservations should be made at LifeWay.com/sbcbreakfast.

LifeWay Films will present "Overcomer," soon to be released from the Kendrick Brothers. There are two evening screening opportunities on Tuesday, June 11. A special screening for church leaders, which includes dinner with the film's creators, will begin at 6:30 p.m. Because seating is limited, advanced reservations should be made by emailing films@lifeway.com.

A second Tuesday evening screening is open to all messengers and will begin at 7:45 p.m. in the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex Theatre.

Throughout the week, messengers and guests can visit the SBC exhibit hall to learn about LifeWay's ministry areas. The LifeWay Christian Store will offer a wide selection of books, Bibles, small group study resources and other Christian products.
