VBS offers Mid-Atlantic Baptist Network churches a tremendous opportunity to evangelize and disciple children, youth, and adults. VBS is a time to “pack your bags and head out for adventure” that can take you through anything on a thrilling adventure to anywhere. It is the largest outreach event for most of our churches.
- More people have come to know Jesus Christ as Savior through VBS than through any other church activity.
- VBS emphasizes the Bible.
- VBS curriculum is designed to relate all the areas of study and activity to the VBS theme. Bible study, missions and crafts work together to teach those attending about God, the Bible, Jesus, and His purpose in their lives.
VBS 2015--Journey Off The Map--Isaiah 30:21
In partnership with LifeWay, we offer the VBS theme for 2015: "Journey Off The Map""
And whenever you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear this command behind you: "This is the way. Walk in it." Isaiah 30:21 (HCSB®)
VBS Motto: This is the way. Walk in it.
Take the journey!
Next summer, LifeWay's VBS takes your kids to uncharted territory where they will begin to understand that obedience to God can lead them beyond the expected. So, toss the map, stick close to your guide, and prepare to listen for God's direction in this journey that is unknown to us, but known by Him.
- Day 1- Know Your Guide-- Jesus is our guide. Our journey begins with Him when we trust Jesus as our Savior
- Day 2- Follow Your Guide-- Daniel chose to obey God no matter what. God wants us to follow our Guide, Jesus.
- Day 3- Trust Your Guide--Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego trusted that God's way was the best way regardless of their circumstances. Jesus wants us to trust Him, just as these three men trusted God.
- Day 4- Stay on Track--No matter what changed around Daniel, he kept his focus on God, who never changes. Jesus wants us to focus on Him by daily following Him.
- Day 5- Keep Watching--Just like Daniel, our journey is part of a much bigger story. God gave Daniel a promise of things to come. God has promised to complete our journey with Him through His Son Jesus.
The VBS Expo and Regional conferences will feature Journey Off The Map.
