Theme & Lessons

Jesus has a way of changing lives. The New Testament is chockablock (crammed full) of people whose lives were transformed by His time and His touch. Each person was unique, but they all had one thing in common—Jesus turned about their lives for His glory. Jesus still changes lives today. He meets us where we are and invites us to join Him on a transforming journey. This VBS series takes a close look at five New Testament stories in which a unique need was met by a life-changing encounter with Jesus.

Don’t forget all the extras that make VBS so special. Advertising Posters and Invitation Cards can spread the word that VBS is coming. Thank-You Cards aid in the follow-up process. A Multimedia CD, which can also be played as an audio CD, is compatible with Mac and PC platforms. Containing art files, reproducible PDF files with song lyrics, and much more, the CD is a great resource for any VBS program. Our VBS theme song, “Jesus, We Love You,” as well as other titles (in a cappella), will help students celebrate that Jesus can make all things new.
