Imagine a world where curious kids become hands-on inventors who discover they’re lovingly crafted by God. Spark creativity with interactive decorations and experiences. Maker Fun Factory transforms your church into a place buzzing with excitement!

Kids discover that Jesus is their champion, Savior King, stronghold, and sure defense. He fought and won the battle they could not when He lived a perfect life, died to pay for their sins, and rose again in triumph. His victory is ours to proclaim and share.

UMI’s VBS programs honor God and the rich heritage of African Americans. Glow for Jesus, based on Matt. 5:16, motivates students of all ages to serve as lights through their actions and attitudes, using their gifts, skills, and interests to help others.

Dig into a VBS that’s all about Jesus’ parables and the treasure to be found in his words. At first, Jesus’ parables seem simple. But it takes listening and digging deeper to discover the treasures of the kingdom of heaven.

Sit at the feet of the Savior— witnessing how Jesus blessed, healed, sought, and saved His people in the Bible. He does the same for you! The only Spanish VBS program originally written in Spanish and available in both Spanish and bilingual formats.
