For years, a collection of a contact-paper-glitter fish hung on a yellow fish-shaped plaque above our family door. The plaque read, “I will make you fishers of men.” It was my prize for bringing the most kids to Vacation Bible School—and a foundational ethos of my young life.
My parents drove their Dodge van around the neighborhood to pick up kids to take to church and AWANA. We read about missionaries and invited those who visited church into our home. My parents were intentional in teaching us about the world, and Vacation Bible School was one part of that missions education.
Its your turn, parents, Christian educators, Sunday School teachers. In your world, spring is the Vacation Bible School planning window, and maybe you have been considering replacing that Big Publisher VBS packet that has forgotten the Gospel with something more substantial. I want to let you know about a resource that may be helpful for you and your church.
Answers in Genesis has produced a VBS curriculum with teaching content, skits, and crafts. This year’s theme is Mystery Island. And, if you choose, there is an add-on missions module with videos and information from Children’s Hunger Fund. My clever colleagues at CHF work all spring and summer on the next year’s curriculum, and it was a delight to watch it come together this year!
Add on the Treasure Hunt module and join CHF as we help churches around the world Deliver Hope!
