Over the course of our VBS week, we will go on awesome adventures alongside some of our favorite Bible heroes and discover the qualities that make us truly heroic in God! We will use music, science, crafty crafts, heroic recreation, and fantastic Bible stories to help kids discover their strength in God.Every day will have a new “Hero Code” to learn how to be God’s Heroes: God’s Heroes Have Heart, God’s Heroes Have Courage, God’s Heroes Have Wisdom, God’s Heroes Have Hope, God’s Heroes Have Power.

Daily Colors, Themes and Hero Verse

Our goal this year is to encourage children to discover their strength in God. Each day has a specific theme and Bible story intended to accomplish this end and will be a great way for you to engage your child about their VBS experience.
