Get ready to run The Incredible Race! We’ve been counting down the minutes, and it’s finally time to announce our newest Vacation Bible School program for 2019!
It’s a race unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.
A race filled with fun clues to find, loaded with interesting challenges to attempt, and a global scavenger hunt like you’ve never seen.
At the same time, it’s about another race. A race that began at the Garden of Eden and continues until this day, made up of all people from all time.
What race? The human race.
As we move around the world in The Incredible Race from Answers VBS, we’ll make pit stops before, during, and after the Tower of Babel. Kids will discover how this event from the Bible matters today.
The day begins at the Check Point Assembly, a supercharged opening complete with entertaining welcomes, catchy songs, a mission moment, and prayer. Then we’re off to four fun rotation sites:
After finishing the day’s rotations, everyone heads back to the Check Point Assembly for the closing that includes more singing, a Creature Feature, contest results, and the greatly anticipated daily drama which is the highlight of the kids’ day.
So grab your gear and get ready for the race of a lifetime as we embark on The Incredible Race. On your mark, get set, go!
