Vacation Bible School

Galactic Starveyors, LifeWay's VBS takes you and your kids to their own backyards or rooftops to "Discover the God of the Universe".   As kids, students, and adults search the skies, they will be captivated by stories from God's Word that will help them appreciate not only the vastness of the universe, but what He did personally for you and me just so He can have a relationship with us.

Colossians 1:15-16
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. He created all things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible. Whether they are kings or lords, rulers or powers—everything has been created through him and for him. (GW) 

Bonus for Church Plants:  

If you are a new church plant (within the first two years of your launch date), AND you attend or send a member of your plant's leadership team to one of our VBS training events across the two states, we will give you a FREE Backyard Kids Club Kit for this year's theme.  A $40 value, this kit provides everything your leadership needs to host VBS in a neighborhood for approximately 35 preschool and school age kids.  Then, you will provide a host home, train your team, gather decorations and purchase kids kits and craft supplies. You can experience the impact that VBS will have on reaching your neighborhood with the gospel. This is a ONE TIME offer that is provided because of the the generosity of churches across Utah and Idaho that gave through the York-Dillman State Missions Offering.
