For many churches, Vacation Bible School (VBS) is going to look a lot different this year because of COVID–19! Most churches have had to cancel their planned in-church VBS programs, many opting instead for a virtual at-home experience. To help churches encourage their congregations and communities, we “resurrected” one of our popular past Answers VBS programs, IncrediWorld, and reformatted and updated it as an at-home VBS. Then we made it free for you to use, whether as a church, backyard Bible club, or in your home.
You can use IncrediWorld at your church for all the kids or even use it at home for one child. And we do it all for you—the teaching, skits, singing, science experiments—everything—is provided for you free!
IncrediWorld is a thrill ride through God’s amazing creation
IncrediWorld is a thrill ride through God’s amazing creation. It’s a fun VBS with an amusement park theme (or, rather, an amazement park theme) and features teaching about creation, highlights some of the creatures God has made, uses God’s Word to view the world, presents the gospel, and more.
I am thankful for the many hours and hard work so many people have put into reformatting this exciting VBS so churches and homes can easily use it this summer. This has included producing brand-new videos to give you more items and ideas for your virtual VBS.
Our Answers VBS YouTube channel now features Bible-lesson videos and puppet videos that can be used for your elementary-aged children so you don’t have to make your own (unless you want to, of course). We also have craft, game, snack, and science experiment videos that share the biblical truth that goes along with these tactile teaching tools.
We also have music videos (contemporary and traditional styles) and even special animal videos from Buddy Davis. These videos are all available in various IncrediWorld playlists on our Answers VBS YouTube channel. You can use these videos to make your own playlists on your YouTube channel and add your own personal videos. Or you can download the videos (along with all the rest of what you need) when you sign-up for IncrediWorld. And yes: it’s all free.
I recently did a Facebook Live session discussing this exciting free offer. You can watch that here:
Now, this VBS is free to download but we do have some fun extras you can purchase to make the at-home VBS experience even better. These include licenses to distribute mp3s of the music, puzzles, posters, books, and more.
Or consider purchasing packs of Kids Answers that focus on God’s incredible design of creatures. These six-page magazines are a fun addition to VBS packets for churches that decide to put those together and send them out (or drop them off with appropriate social distancing).
