"Big Apple Adventure" Is 2011 VBS Theme

By Polly House

Churches from all over the world will be heading to New York City this summer.

"Big Apple Adventure" is the theme for this year's Vacation Bible School material produced by LifeWay Christian Resources, and children can explore one of the most exciting cities on the planet while learning to step out in faith, connect with Jesus and share the message of Christ with the world.

More than 1,500 people from churches across the country and as far away as South Korea gathered earlier this year at LifeWay in Nashville, Tenn., for two VBS preview events.

"People who have attended the VBS preview events here at LifeWay and the ones we hosted at LifeWay Ridgecrest Conference Center and in Texas are so pumped about this year's theme," said Jerry Wooley, LifeWay's VBS specialist. "It's been fun to see the enthusiasm for the New York setting.

"What thrills me the most, though, is how excited they are about teaching the children, teens and adults about Jesus," he added. "I think this VBS is probably the most evangelical one that I ever remember. I pray that we will have more VBS participants learning about Him and receiving Him as their Savior than in any year past."


Until next time...share the journey and enjoy the ride!
