Gangway to Galilee – VBS

Gangway to Galilee – VBS

Ahoy! Join us at the Sea of Galilee as we get ready to sail on an Amazing Grace Adventure with Jesus! Throughout our week (July 7 to 11) we will join in with the crowd of thousands, captivated by Jesus, as He speaks to us. Each day will be a new Amazing Grace Adventure teaching through repetition, taste, touch, sight, smell, and music. Children will enjoy exciting activities at several stations each day. Stations include:

~ Gangway Opening w/Set Sail Songs ~ Sailors will gather to be energized for their daily adventure full of Set Sail Songs, mission moments, God’s Word, & video skits.
~ Big Catch Bible Challenge ~ Sailors will dig into God’s Word, just like they dig in the sand for seashells, to discover the Amazing things God tell us about His Grace.
~ Splash-tacular Crafts ~ Sailors will make creations that share the message of Jesus’ Amazing Grace.
~ Sink or Swim Games ~ Team-building games celebrating the Amazing Grace that Jesus gives.
~ Sunrise Snacks ~ Sailors will stay nourished & energized while making/eating tasty snacks.
~ Seashore Storytelling ~ Sailors will journey around the Sea of Galilee to learn about God’s life-giving Word as they read, see, & interact with the Bible lessons.
~ Gangway Closing ~ Sailors will drop anchor & come back together to review the daily Bible teaching, sing songs, & watch the closing video. Parents are invited to come early (12:00pm) to watch and enjoy the fun.

Parents are encouraged to read the Bible Story Passages each night with their child(ren) to reinforce the daily Bible lessons. Daily lessons are:

~ Jesus Calls Me ~ Jesus Calls His Disciples (Matthew 4:18-25)
~ Jesus Teaches Me ~ Jesus Teaches from the Boat (Luke 5:1-11)
~ Jesus Keeps Me Safe ~ Jesus Calms the Storm (Mark 4:35-41)
~ Jesus Saves Me ~ Jesus Walks on the Water (Matthew 14:22-33)
~ Jesus Provides All I Need ~ Jesus Appears to Seven Disciples (John 21:1-14)

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.”  ~ Ephesians 2:8
