Vacation Bible School (VBS) brings memories of laughing children, busy volunteers and warm days filled with Bible stories, crafts, songs, pledges, and snacks.

This author has developed an affordable, workable, and exciting VBS program that saves you money and effectively engages today’s children in learning about God’s Word and applying it to their lives.

With a small congregation of 80, the authors were able to conduct successful VBS with a staff of 4 to 6 adults, and a group of 40 to 50 kids!
Jesus Is the Rock is based on the theme verse Matthew 7:24. The objective is for children to grasp the concept of what it means to make Jesus the foundation of their lives, so when trials come they will not be shaken. A Theme Station includes testimony time where visitors will share testimonies and children may ask questions. This week’s Bible Station is called “The Parable Place” and covers The Wise and Foolish Man, The Parable of the Sower, The Parable of the Good Samaritan, and the Story of Nicodemus. Each day’s crafts and games are related to the “rock” theme.
Use this to reach and teach the children in your church and community. Impact their lives for eternity…and influence their loved ones.
