With our Ramblin’ Road Trip VBS 2005 just last week, Lifeway unveiled their two new Vacation Bible School themes for 2006 today. The featured material looks exciting as usual.
Trek north to LifeWay’s VBS 2006, Arctic Edge, where daily excursions from Big Bear Lodge will have kids hiking across the tundra, exploring the seascape by kayak, and skimming the backcountry in a float plane. As kids test their limits in the challenges of the vast Arctic wilderness, they will learn that God is always with them and find the courage required to follow Jesus in the everyday challenges of their lives.
The secondary alternative takes a space theme with Club VBS: Space Quest. Didn’t we have a “Space Quest” just a few years ago? I’m going to look into this material. I’m thinking a one night a week for 5 or six weeks thing might work. We do not have a week night children’s program now and no one seems interested in starting a permanent thing, but everyone loves VBS! Perhaps doing something like this during the winter would be fun and a step toward wider involvement. I may wait a few weeks before I spring this idea on my workers. After last week, they need a little time to recuperate. 🙂
