Program Information

2018 Vacation Bible School

Shipwrecked! Rescued by Jesus!

Each day at Shipwrecked VBS children in small groups will explore four different stations - Imagination Station, Games, KidVid Cinema and Bible Discovery. Each station engages the child differently to deepen their understanding of the daily Bible point. In addition, the children gather together for the fun-filled Sing & Play.

Here are this year's daily Bible points and stories.

Day 1: When you are lonely... Jesus rescues! Jesus tells parables about lost things. (Luke 15).

Day 2: When you worry... Jesus rescues! Martha worries and complains (Luke 10: 38-42).

Day 3: When you struggle... Jesus rescues! Jesus' friends try to rescue him (Luke 22: 39-54; Matthew 26: 36-56).

Day 4: When you do wrong... Jesus rescues! Jesus welcomes a criminal before dying (Luke 23:26-24:12).

Day 5: When you're powerless... Jesus rescues! Peter and John heal a lame man (Acts 3: 1-26).

Each day children will also collect Bible Buddies to take home on Friday. Each Bible Buddy tag includes the special Bible verse for the day.

Cost: $40.00 (includes t-shirt, materials and snack) – scholarships are available.
