SBTC State VBS Trainings

State VBS Trainings offer in-depth training and ideas for churches and associations in many areas...leader enlistment, decorating, music, worship, missions, bible study, recreation, crafts, and more!  Plan now to join us in 2017 for one of these VBS Training dates.  We know you will leave with the tools you need to help your kids become all they can be under God's watchful eye over the moon! 

Registration cost: $10.  We will give a special gift to those churches pre-registered at least one week prior to the event they will attend!

***NOTE:  If you have questions about these trainings, please contact Emily Smith or Judy Van Hooser at the SBTC.

2017 VBS Theme

In 2017, LifeWay’s VBS turns your kids into Galactic Starveyors! As kids focus their telescopes on the marvels painted in the sky by the Creator, they will discover the wonder among all wonders-the God who created everything-the knowable and the unknowable, the visible and the invisible-who wants a personal relationship with them! Invite your kids into the clubhouse and show them the God who is over the moon in love with them.

Motto: "Searching the Visible, Discovering the Invisible"

Verse:  He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For everything was created by Him, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-all things have been created through Him and for Him. Colossians 1:15-16 (HCSB)

VBS Preview - January 13-14, 2017 - Travis Avenue Baptist Church, Ft. Worth. Cost $70. More information...
