Theme & Lessons

Jesus used parables to illustrate lessons to those who followed Him. Whether it was soil, coins, or seeds, Jesus often spoke using everyday items as analogies, knowing they would be easily understood by those He was teaching. In this VBS students will look at five of Jesus' most well-loved parables to learn how to use the gifts God gave them to reach others for His kingdom.



Lesson 1Use God's GiftsParable of the Talents
(Matthew 25:14-30)

Lesson 2Grow in God's WordParable of the Soils
(Matthew 12:3-8; 18-23)

Lesson 3 Share God's LoveParable of the Unmerciful
Servant (Matthew 18:23-34)

Lesson 4Shine God's LightParable of Salt and Light (Matthew 5:13-16)

Lesson 5Accept God's GraceParable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32)

Crafts help your students relate to VBS lessons with hands-on activities. Redemption Ranch offers a craft ideas book, which includes crafts that are suitable for students from toddlers to older students. By ordering a craft ideas book for each class, you allow your teachers to select the best crafts for their students. Craft pages are reproducible and need only a few standard ancillary items, typically found in most classrooms. Though each suggested craft will provide the student with a lasting and useful object, it will also provide the students with a fun-filled craft making session. The crafts are purposeful, relevant, and easy to perform for most age students.

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 multi-media 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, “His to Give” as well as other titles (in a cappella), will help get everyone excited about God’s blessings.
