Day 1

The Relationship Began

Genesis 1:1-2,26-31; John 1:1,14

Today’s Point:

The God who created everything wants a relationship with us.

Bible Story Summary:

In the beginning, there was nothing ... only God the Father, His Son Jesus, and God’s Holy Spirit. God created the world and everything in it, including man. God made man to enjoy relationships with one another and with

Day 2

The Relationship Broken

Genesis 3

Today’s Point:

Sin messed everything up, but God is still in control.

Bible Story Summary:

Satan tempted Eve to eat the fruit from the forbidden tree. Eve ate and offered some to Adam who also ate. Sin entered the world and every person who has ever lived has chosen to disobey God in some way—except for One, Jesus.

Day 3

The Restoration Promised

Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-24; Luke 2:22-38

Today’s Point:

God sent His Son, Jesus, to be the Savior of the world.

Bible Story Summary:

Before sin even entered the world, God had a plan to fix everything sin would mess up. In Isaiah, God promised to send the Messiah. When the time was right, God sent Jesus to pay the penalty for sin. Simeon and Anna recognized that Jesus was the Messiah God had promised.

Day 4

The Relationship Restored and The Relationship Continues

Mark 15:22–16:7

John 21:1-19; Acts 1:4,8

Today’s Point:

Jesus gave His life to be my Savior and even though I mess up, God still loves me and will never leave me.

Bible Story Summary:

Jesus literally was Immanuel—God with us. When Jesus was 33, He was put on trial, convicted of sins He did not commit, and hung on a cross to die. When Jesus died darkness covered the land and the veil in the temple was torn in two. Jesus was buried and on the third day He arose. Jesus provided the way for our relationship with God to be restored.

Some days after God raised Jesus from the dead, He met some of the disciples at the Sea of Galilee. Jesus prepared breakfast for the disciples. He restored Peter’s relationship and instructed Peter to take care of His sheep. Jesus told the disciples to wait for God to send the Holy Spirit so that God would always be with them to help and to guide them.


VBS could not happen without our incredible volunteers. We believe the Gospel is for kids! In everything we do, we seek to partner with parents to develop disciples who know God, grow in God, and go with God. Come be a part of this mission! 

This year's VBS is going to be incredible. We are sending cards out to the entire community and going to reach kids with the Gospel. Our theme verse this year is Colossians 1:15-16. This year will bring some changes. Kids will start out in rooms so that parents and leaders can make a connection. Our worship rally will be in the 3:16 center so that we can replicate Space, and after all rotations, kids will close in their rooms with snack and small group. Our VBS will be Monday - Thursday (June 12-15) with a family event on Wednesday night! Get ready for an incredible week! Start praying and asking the Lord where you can serve.
