To modify the timeless words of Forrest Gump…“VBS is like a box of chocolates. You never know what your gonna get.” With thousands of Vacation Bible School programs out there, how can you choose what fits your kids ministry best? Well, let’s break it down. The perfect VBS is Gospel-centered, volunteer-friendly and value-packed. And that’s just for starters.
If you are searching for the ultimate VBS program that will make your summer one to remember, then check out the top 10 reasons why you should try the God of Wonders VBS.
VBS is more than an exciting theme. VBS is a chance to present the Good News of Jesus over an exciting week of Summer. God of Wonder introduces the Gospel to your Kids through the epic redemption story of Moses. From the slavery of God’s people, to their salvation at the Red Sea, this Vacation Bible School focuses on the work of Jesus, from start to finish.
A week-long VBS is only as good as its volunteer team. If resources are over-complicated or impractical, volunteers get frustrated and disengaged. This is why we’ve designed every resource in the God of Wonders VBS to make your volunteers’ lives easier! Your team will love the easy-to-understand lesson overviews, small group discussion guides, empowering teacher slideshows, team-building activities and so much more! Is that the unanimous applause of Sunday School volunteers we hear?
Value is that awesome feeling of getting the best bang for your buck. The value-packed God of Wonders VBS will turn your buck into a stick of dynamite! This epic 5-day event includes 7 ready-to-download digital bundles that provide everything you need to recruit, promote and deliver your perfect VBS. And the best part? The God of Wonders VBS is included 100% FREE with a Sharefaith Kids membership. For less than $1/day, you can have access to over 100 full Sunday School lessons and this amazing Vacation Bible School program. What will you do with all of the extra money left in your Sunday School budget?
4. Exceptional Lessons
VBS is a 5-day event and every lesson needs to matter. With the God of Wonders VBS, there is no filler. Day 1 tells the miraculous story of baby Moses and reminds your kids that God has a destiny for our lives. Day 2 follows Moses as he escapes Egypt for the promise of abundant life. Day 3 brings the burning Bush to life and teaches your kids that God wants a personal relationship with all of us. Day 4 centers on the showdown between God and Pharaoh and shows that God will fight our battles. And Day 5 concludes with God’s people being miraculously delivered through the Red Sea. A climactic lesson that beautifully depicts the desire and power of God to save. Your kids will walk away with a deeper knowledge of who God is.
5. Visual Storytelling
When Jesus taught, he did so using the power of visual storytelling. He communicated with powerful images and stories that stuck with his audience long after he stopped speaking. Each day of the God of Wonders VBS has been designed to bring the power of visual storytelling front and center. With the centerpiece of each day featuring a vibrant kids Bible video that brings Scripture to life with award-winning illustrations, heartfelt narration and bold storytelling. This summer, don’t just tell your kids about the Gospel, let them see it come to life!
6. Ready To Promote
The best VBS program is of little value if no one signs up. That is why a successful VBS means getting the word out! With God of Wonders, you will be able to promote your Vacation Bible School with beautifully designed posters, registration forms and social media graphics. God of Wonders will make VBS the talk of your congregation!
7. Structured & Simple
A VBS program can make one of two mistakes. 1) Have zero structure and leave your team scratching their heads or 2) Create a program so detailed and complicated that your team needs a tutor to get through it all. God of Wonders threads the needle by giving you a VBS program that’s structured for success, but simple enough for your team to understand. Our handy VBS Checklist gives you a step-by-step walk-through of your best Vacation Bible School ever! If you’re ready to start planning your VBS today, then check out this essential 20-step guide.
