Join the Expedition
"X marks the spot" is a phrase associated with expeditions and treasure hunts as adventurers set off to seek fame and fortune. For Christians, a cross marks the spot where the greatest treasure is found—redemption through our Lord Jesus Christ. Our prayer is that through VBS this year, children who are believers will be encouraged to dig deeply into the rich treasure God has given them, and that children who don’t know Jesus will find and claim God’s gracious treasure by giving their hearts to the Lord.
During the daily skits, children will look on as Chris and Kelly make their Faith Expedition to find the greatest treasure in the world. In Bible lessons, your students will study man’s need for God and the faith God has given us to follow His plan; to believe His promises; to obey Him; to repent and turn to Jesus; and to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Daily lessons are reinforced throughout the curriculum not only in class study times, but also through the music, skits, crafts, recreation time, and even snacks. The Explorer’s Backpack (name tag) reinforces the themes and encourages children as they receive stickers that are symbolic reminders of the day’s lesson. There are activities for each type of learner so that every child has the opportunity to remember the truths taught.
Now, dig out those backpacks and shovels, open that treasure map, and check your routes! You are about to join the children of your church and community on an exciting expedition to uncover the greatest treasure in the world!
