Get a Free VBS Workshop on January 29 or 30

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a great way to reach out to kids with the good news of the gospel and the truth of God’s Word. That’s why AiG partners with churches around the world by designing a new VBS every year. The 2016 VBS is Ocean Commotion. Each day our kids are challenged to stand for God in a world that constantly tries to tell them that His Word can’t be trusted. Noah experienced these same struggles back at the time of the global Flood a few thousand years ago. But God helped him to “stand for God,” “obey God,” “trust God,” “thank God,” and “fear God.” With Ocean Commotion kids will learn with fun games, songs, snacks, and science experiments how they can be like Noah and stand for, obey, trust, thank, and fear their Creator.
