55 Days Until VBS: Themes and Memory Verses

UncategorizedJared KennedyComment

There are just 55 days left before our Midtown Campus VBS.  After that, there will be only a couple of weeks before the J-town Campus version. Sign up now to register your children or to serve! The theme for this year’s event is SonSurf.  Kids will be learning about the life and mission of Jesus while they cruise through beach themed environments.  Lessons focus on who Jesus is, why we can trust him, why we need him, and how he sends his people on mission.  Here is an overview of the themes and theme verses for each day of the week:

Who is Jesus? Jesus is God's Son and when I meet up with Him, I discover how much God loves me.

"This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him." John 4:9

Why can I trust Jesus? I can look up to Jesus and ask His help because He is trustworthy.

"When I am afraid, I will trust in you." Psalm 56:3

Why do I need Jesus? Jesus' death an resurrection make it possible for me to join up with Him and be part of God's family.

"Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'" John 14:6

How can Jesus help me when I mess up? When I open up to Jesus about my sin, He forgives me and helps me make a fresh start.

"The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him." Daniel 9:9

What does Jesus want me to do? Jesus wants me to know and love Him and get fired up about sharing Him with others.

"Go and make disciples of all nations... teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.  And surely I am with you always." Matthew 28:19-20
