Vacation Bible School 2012
Operation Overboard by Cokesbury!
Ten - they did a wonderful job with Operation Overboard - it is well worth taking a good look at it to see if it might be a good "fit" for your ministry -
1. Depend on God – Genesis 6:9-13, 22-7:17; 8:1, 13-9:17 – Noah depends on God
2. Dare to Care – 2 Kings 5 – A servant girl dares to care
3. Claim Jesus – Matthew 3L1-17; Mark 1:1-11; Luke 3:1-22 – John proclaims Jesus
4. Choose to Follow – Luke 5:1-11; John 21:4-24 – the disciples choose to follow Jesus
5. Change the World – Acts 27 – Paul delivers Good News
Setting – God’s underwater universe
Message – Kids will plunge into Bible stories of people with deep faith and learn to trust a God whose love is bigger than the sea! Kids will be challenged to discover what it means to have a “deep faith”
Focus – Evangelism, Application and Bible Content
Would like to see –
Cokesbury says, “Theme clearly connects to the Bible, engaging activities which appeal to boys and girls of all ages and easy, fun decorating options, Operation Overboard is the perfect choice for your VBS. The curriculum introduces children to a deeper relationship with God through Jesus Christ, inspires students and leaders – to bring the Word of God alive to all who experience it, includes Bible stories which give a sequential view of the Bible and provides faith connections for all participants!.” If you are looking for a VBS with a strong evangelistic focus and a theme which is thoroughly woven through each part of the day, take a good look at Operation Overboard!
