Experience The Easy VBS® difference... Take your church on an exciting bayou adventure! Crocodile Dock is easy to decorate and volunteer-friendly. So hop on a flat-bottom boat and drift through lazy, hazy waters under tall cypress trees...until the big adventure begins! Hear the music that will rock your dock! Year after year, churches tell us that Group VBS has the best music out there. Have a listen! For a cool music video and clips of all the Crocodile Dock songs, go to group.com/vbs. There’s a big difference between The Easy VBS and other VBS programs. At Crocodile Dock, kids become a part of the Bible story—with all their hearts, minds, and emotions. Imagine this: On Day 2 at Crocodile Dock, kids “experience” the plagues, making the Bible story truly unforgettable. (You’ll love how all of this comes together!)

God Sightings™ will change the way you do VBS forever. A burning bush…an assault of plagues…Jesus’ resurrection. The Bible tells us God performed big stuff—miracles—to make himself known. But he’s acting in our everyday lives and all around us, too. Help children understand that. Lead them to see the world differently, with God Sightings™! Tons of fun activities & loads of encouragement help kids keep an eye out for “God in action” in their everyday lives. They’ll even notice the daily demonstrations of his love that are often overlooked. For example, kids will…

Find four powerful things God made.

Look for someone showing God’s love at a sporting event.

Take a long drink of cold water—and thank God for providing the water you need to stay alive.

And they’ll discover how they can be a God Sighting by showing Christ’s love!

Place a fun treat or note on a family member’s pillow.

Give a smile to someone who doesn’t have one.

Share an extra-delicious chocolate chip cookie.

Help kids see what God is doing all around us! Your children will develop a sense of God’s loving presence. They’ll see evidence of his power. And they’ll know God is alive…and active…and with them!

Last year, my daughter Alexa—then in 2nd grade—struggled with the transition to a new school. She sobbed on the way to school every morning, convinced she’d never make friends and that her teacher didn’t like her. Prayers, hugs, and notes in the lunchbox didn’t seem to help much. (What was happening to my “mom magic”?) After many tear-filled mornings, God put the answer right on my desk at Group. I received a set of Bible Memory Buddies for approval and carefully read the Scripture on each one, making sure they were all correct. Then I came to that watery dude, Dewd. “I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me.” (Psalm 23:4) The next day, Alexa bravely went to school with Dewd clutched in her hand. Perched in her desk next to yellow pencils and bubble gum-scented erasers, Dewd reminded Alexa of God’s presence...in a way that I couldn’t. That little blue Buddy travelled from home to school and back for the entire school year—long after Alexa made great friends and discovered that her teacher loved her.

10

And even better, Alexa got to share her faith with curious friends who saw the little blue dude. She read the Scripture passage and told them that it made her feel better to know that God was with her. That smiling, surfing Buddy gave me a way to put God’s Word into my daughter’s hands...and heart.

Here’s how it works: It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

1 2 3

On Day 5, the Crafts Leader will distribute two Comfort Critters to each child (one to give away, and one to keep). Kids will stuff the turtles with Poly-fil, comparing the stuffing to how they’re filling children’s lives with God’s love. They’ll seal the turtles and then draw a special note (found in each child’s student book) to include in the Comfort Critter’s pocket. Kids will also slip a copy of The Survivors Booklet into the pocket. Then each crew will huddle together and pray for the children who will receive their gifts of love. That day, during Firefly Finale, each of the kids will come forward and set one Comfort Critter on the stage as an offering. This is a powerful, moving ceremony. Kids and leaders will be amazed as they see just how many turtles and books they can send to children in North America. It’s a concrete way for kids to see that it’s easy to shine God’s love. (And it’s a simple way for kids to be a God Sighting!) Send the Comfort Critters to our partners at International Bible Society. They will work with local agencies to ensure the Comfort Critters get to kids in need! See your Ultimate Director Go-To Guide for more information.


You can make a difference! Help these critters crawl across the country...and comfort children when they need it most! You can more than cover your costs for this powerful mission project—just ask parents to donate $1 per child.

A powerful mission project at only $1 per child

When disaster strikes, children experience the larger-than-life trauma of losing everything—without any warning. A favorite toy or trusted pet can vanish in just a day. The emotional pain, confusion, and sadness will rock a child’s world. But there’s a way for you and your VBS kids to help! Send love, encouragement, and something to hold on to with this year’s special mission project. Your kids will have a blast making a pair of soft & snuggly Comfort Critters!
