Join Us for VBS 2019 at Miraculous Mission

We're bursting with excitement for our 2019 VBS theme, Miraculous Mission: Jesus Saves the World. Join us for an interstellar adventure as we learn about our God who created our amazing universe and also loves each of us with a vast and amazing love. Here's a sneak peek at the Bible lessons and space-filled fun that awaits!

Bible Stories Focus on God's Plan of Salvation

All five of this year's Bible stories share God's plan of salvation, from creation to the cross, reminding us that Jesus is the center of God’s Miraculous Mission. Watch our theme video and then read more about each of the stories that will be featured in this year's program.

Lesson 1: God Made the Universe

In lesson one, kids discover how God created our amazing universe with His powerful Word, as recorded in Genesis 1 and 2.

Lesson Theme: God made me.

Bible Memory VerseI praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14

Lesson 2: God Promises a Savior

As God kept his promise to Abram to make his descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky, so also he kept all of His promises to save and rescue us in Jesus. We'll explore Genesis 12 and 15 and rejoice with awe and wonder at God's promise fulfilled.

Bible Memory VerseFor God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

Lesson 5: Jesus the Savior Reigns

Connect beyond VBS with The Work of His Hands

This year's VBS offers a new children's book, The Work of His Hands for Kids. Based on the popular book The Work of His Hands, by NASA astronaut Col. Jeff Williams. This children's version features Bible verses from this year's VBS, along with powerful pictures of God's amazing creation. The book will release in November 2018, so churches will have plenty of time to review and order copies for every child at this year's VBS.

Williams shares his experience as an astronaut and has spoken on many occasions about science and faith. Watch the video series below and head over to our Pinterest page to see more of his pictures and interviews.
