2016 Vacation Bible School Banner

In 2016, LifeWay’s VBS takes your kids on an adventure like no other...deep within the mysterious sea. As kids submerge themselves in God’s Word, they will discover that Jesus didn’t just see what’s on the outside of people. He looked deep down on the inside. So grab your goggles, step into your flippers, and dive in to find truth below the surface!

Motto: "Jesus sees. Jesus knows. Jesus saves."
Verse:  Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my concerns. See if there is any offensive way in me; lead me in the everlasting way. Psalm 139:23-24 (HCSB)

The kit for the Backyard Kids Club provides all the basics your team needs to host and lead a Backyard VBS: promotion instructions, snack ideas, folders filled with children's and preschool Bible studies, activities for crafts and music, recreation cards, music CDs, and a choreography DVD.
