Every day, our kids are bombarded with questions: Did God really create everything? Why do bad things happen? Was Noah’s ark real? Why do I need to be saved? Can I trust the Bible?
At this VBS, your kids will explore the biblical answers to these questions as they set off on an epic adventure from Genesis to Revelation. Amid sloths, butterflies, river dolphins, and dart frogs, your children will sail along on a fun jungle cruise, stopping at seven ports of call. These ports are the 7 C’s of History: Creation, Corruption, Catastrophe, Confusion, Christ, Cross, and Consummation. Kids will discover how these events shape our world, and they will learn to reconnect the Bible to their everyday life.
Prepare to swing into fun as we head out on The Great Jungle Journey!
Excitement and adventure await from the first minute of each day when kids meet in travel groups.
The groups gather at the Jungle Jam Assembly, a high-energy beginning that includes wacky intros, lively songs, a Mission Moment, and prayer. Then they’re off to rotate through five fun sites:
Finally, everyone heads back to the Jungle Jam Assembly for the closing, where there’s more singing, contest results, and the highly anticipated daily drama.
We cruise to our first C of history—Creation—and head back to the beginning of the universe.
