UPCOMING LOCAL VBS Programs 2014

‘Knights of the Kingdom’ VBS at Collierville First Pentecostal Church

Hear ye! Hear ye! Announcing "Knights of the Kingdom," a knights-in-training program from the kids power hour series.

"Knights of the Kingdom" is all about the whole armor of God. Children learn how each piece of armor protects and equips them for spiritual battle, how to resist the enemy and how to stand firm. Deeds of chivalry, feats of memory and faithful attendance transform students from squires into knights.

Animated songs on the resource DVD help children learn songs that emphasize putting on the whole armor of God. This DVD also provides ideas for games, snacks and crafts, and includes reproducible items. The songs only are also available on a music CD.

Knights of the Kingdom is designed to include a complete vacation Bible school program.

‘Promised Land or Bust: Wilderness Road Adventures’ VBS at Collierville Church of Christ

God has broken the power of Pharaoh through 10 devastating plagues, and Israel is on the move toward the Promised Land.

However, when difficulties arise, the Israelites fail to trust in God’s power and choose to whine and complain instead. Through 40 years of wandering, God trains his people to trust him and to follow his ways. They finally arrive in Canaan, thankful for all that God has done.

In the same way, God has freed us from the grip of sin through the sacrifice of his son, Jesus. As obedient believers, we are on our own "Wilderness Road" trip, heading for our promised land – Heaven.

Each night (God’s Path, God’s Gift, God’s Strength, God’s Leaders and God’s Promised Land) will include singing, Bible class, crafts and snacks for the kids, and the week will close with a Parent Night and cookout on Friday, June 27.

Jesus is the only way, and God has the strength and power to get us home. Say, "No" to whining and complaining. Say, "Yes" to obeying and following on this VBS road trip adventure.
