VBS 2019 - In The Wild

Grab your camera—wild encounters are coming!

Throw on your camera strap and buckle your seatbelt. VBS 2019 takes you on a wild adventure—with elephants and egrets, polar bears and penguins, cockatoos and crocodiles. As you seek out exotic animals, you’ll also find snapshots of real-life encounters with Jesus in Scripture. Kids go from bewildered to believing as they get “In the Wild” at this summer’s VBS.

Theme Verse

But these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. John 20:31 (CSB)

Why Choose LifeWay's VBS?

Reaching Out

You can rest assured that all aspects of your VBS will include age-appropriate outreach. Your church will have the opportunity to establish ongoing relationships with everyone who attends. On average, 10 percent of kids who attend VBS are not associated with a church family. For the average VBS, 10 percent equals 10 people. Would discovering 10 people, and starting a relationship with them, be a big deal for your church?

Learning About God

Everything that happens during VBS grows out of the biblical content. Kids can connect to God’s Word in a creative setting where the gospel message can speak into their hearts.

Having Fun

VBS is exciting! LifeWay’s VBS is flexible to meet your church’s needs. Backyard Kids Club can help you take your event out of the church and into the community or onto the mission field.
