Setting – trip around the world to see some of the world’s greatest natural wonders
Message – children will learn God’s power is amazing and we can trust Him! LifeWay takes your kids on a “trip” around the world to see some of the most amazing things and places – as they do they will learn God’s power is amazing and they can trust Him!
Focus – Evangelism, Content and Application
Would like to see –
LifeWay says, "Watch amazing things happen as kids encounter God like never before—all against the backdrop of some of the world's most marvelous natural wonders. As kids explore Psalm 147:5, they’ll recognize God’s power over all things, trust that God is always in control, accept God’s gift of forgiveness, celebrate that Jesus is alive, and rely on God’s power." Trusting God seems to be a popular focus for 2012 VBS resources and I’m glad this is so! Each lesson emphasizes how Amazing our God is and challenges kids to trust God! In this day and age we all need to hear this message! The setting of traveling around the world is interesting and fun – I love it! If my church used this we would have to add more engagement to the Bible lessons, a local service project and “boost” the opening and close, but overall, Amazing Wonders Aviation is a great option for a VBS with a strong evangelism focus, solid Bible content and as a mission trip resource!
