I greet you all in the name of the Lord. As we approach the April 2015 VBS program, we would like to take this opportunity to update you on the structure of the program. The program is designed in such a way that every day has a focus on a bible point with a bible story and bible verse. This is reinforced through activities like crafts, snack making, games, a video with a character on a mission for God and music.
Below are the bible stories and points for each day:
Day 1 Bible point - Know God. The bible story to illustrate this is about Gideon defeating the Midianites (Judges 7:1-22) and the bible verse is Psalm 135:5.
Day 2 Bible point - Talk to God. The bible story is Daniel prays and is sent to the den of lions (Daniel 6:1-28). The bible verse is Ephesian 6:18
Day 3 Bible point - Tell about God. The bible story is about Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego stand up for God (Daniel 3:1-30). The bible verse is Psalm 9:1
Day 4 Bible point - Love God. The story is Jesus dies and rises again (John 19:1-20. The bible verse is 1John 4:19
Day 5 Bible point - Work for God. The bible story is on Paul and Silas' worship God in prison (Acts 16:16-40). The bible verse is Colossians 3:23
