  2017 VBS Theme

VBS offers Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware 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.

  • Day 1-  The Relationship Began                    
    Day 2-  The Relationship Broken
    Day 3- The Restoration Promised
    Day 4- The Relationship Restored
    Day 5- The Relationship Continues


  In partnership with LifeWay, we offer the VBS theme for 2017: "Galactic Starveyors"


VBS 2017--Galactic Starveyors--Colossians 1:15-16--"He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation; because by Him everything was created, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things have been created through Him and for Him."

VBS Motto:  "Searching the Visible, Discovering the Invisible" 

The VBS Expo and Regional conferences will feature Galactic Starveyors.


Backyard Kids Club: 

Taking VBS out of your church and into your community is easy with the VBS 2017 Backyard Kids Club Kit. It’s designed for a club of about 20 kids and works perfectly with all the Galactic Starveyor gear.

There are many exciting and unique ministry possibilities that your church has through VBS. LifeWay's optional VBS curriculum is Club VBS.

VBS materials are offered by several other vendors. If you decide to research other curriculums, it is important to understand their Biblical approach to teaching in order to determine which is best for your church. You can access by these additional options by google or yahoo search engine.
