Kids are naturally curious, and when you’re curious about who God is it’s easy to grow your relationship
with Jesus. That’s why, in this 4-part series for Vacation Bible School, we’re going to engage kids’
imaginations! Kids will not only get curious about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics —
but also about the God who created it all!

They’ll hear from Bible heroes like Noah, Peter, John, David and the New Testament Church, who help
Jesus-followers wonder what made their stories unique, what gifts God gave them (and how they could
use those gifts to serve), what they could learn from others, and how they could spend time with God.

Day 1

  • We’ll encourage kids to wonder about the unique story God is telling with their lives and how their story might connect with God’s big story of salvation through Jesus.
  • Big Idea: Created and saved by God. You are unique.
  • Bible: Genesis 6:8, “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.”

Day 2

  • We’ll help kids discover how God uniquely created them and wonder how they can use their unique gifts to love others and change the world together with Jesus.
  • Big Idea: Using the gifts from God. What gifts did God give me?
  • Bible: Acts 3:6, “Then Peter said, ‘Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.’”.

Day 3

  • We’ll encourage kids to practice healthy community and help them wonder how learning from, caring for, and loving others can help their relationship with Jesus grow.
  • Big Idea: Loving like God. Love others.
  • Bible: 2 Samuel 9:1, “And David said, Is there yet any that is left of the house of Saul, that I may shew him kindness for Jonathan's sake?”

Day 4

  • We’ll encourage kids to wonder how they can get to know and become more like Jesus through worship, prayer, and reading and memorizing the words God gave us in the Bible.
  • Big Idea: Living for God is spending time with Him.
  • Bible: 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
