Group’s Holy Land Adventure®

VBS CATALOG 2010

From the #1 Rated VBS in Customer Satisfaction.


Introducing...EGYPT! get families ready for the journey of a lifetime I just love it when parents and other family members enjoy VBS as much as the kids do! That’s exactly what happened when we held our Egypt VBS here in Colorado. As always, we tested every aspect of this 2010 Holy Land Adventure VBS in a local church. We invited kids, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles—everyone. Then we all joined Joseph on his journey from prison to the palace. It was truly a family VBS—and what fun! My favorite part was a boy named Zack, who had such a heart to share Jesus! Even though he knew the adult leaders were acting out roles, Zack saw it as his mission to share Christ with them. For several nights, he earnestly told one volunteer—playing an Egyptian Guard—to forget other gods and follow Jesus instead. The most precious sight was at the closing. The Guard came to the celebration, and this little boy was so happy! Zack held the Guard’s hand the whole time they were singing, just showing him God’s love. It was very, very cool. I encourage you to browse through the pages of this catalog. Take your time…imagine the possibilities…enjoy dreaming about your summertime ministry to children…then give us a call or visit us on the Web, and let’s get started!

thanks for being someone who changes children’s lives!

when you’re in egypt—you’re family!

family time teaching kit This versatile kit provides everything your volunteers need to succeed at leading Egypt’s Family Time small group sessions—including tips, object lessons, Scripture, Bible backgrounds…everything!

During Egypt, each child joins an “Egyptian Family”—a small group of up to 10 kids. That way, everyone fits in, everyone’s got friends, and it’s easy to move children from place to place in the Marketplace. You can have as many families as you’d like…from 1 to 100! Just give each family a name. You can choose your own, or use the Egyptian Family names listed below.

Amarna

Medinet el-Fayum

Per-Bastet

Zoan

Pithom

Rosetta

Memphis

Sais

Asyut

Giza

And here are more great reasons to form Families… Family Leaders remind kids (and adults!) of Daily Bible Points before they all head into the Marketplace each day. And after Marketplace experiences, families gather to discuss what kids learned… how it relates to the Bible Point…and how it all applies to daily life!

student materials

make a lasting impression – with Bible memory makers®! order one set per student!

Bible Memory Maker hieroglyphs provide a Scripture reminder of the one true God and his real love for each of us! During closing Family Time each day, each child at Egypt will receive a Bible Memory Maker from the Family Leader as a special take-home token. You’ll want to make sure each child at your VBS receives a full set of Bible Memory Makers so no one misses out on these special moments. Give these Bible Memory Makers to kids— and to parents, volunteers, and anyone involved with your Egypt VBS!

in egypt, kids truly experience Bible history… Imagine living in a dusty, bustling, noisy city along the Nile in ancient Egypt. You’d hear about Pharaoh’s palace… work with people who follow countless gods… and perhaps hear about a “dreamer” that Pharaoh put in charge. Egypt immerses learners of all ages in Bible-times culture, helping kids and adults step back in time to experience new traditions, taste new foods, play new games, try new crafts—and learn from Joseph himself that God never leaves us alone through life’s trials and triumphs! At this VBS, kids don’t just watch dramas—they’re swept along as real-life events unfold in the Marketplace. Kids see, smell, hear, taste, and touch Bible truths and events. And you can cement that Bible learning with the hands-on activities you’ll find in the next few pages. Each activity captivates kids…sparks their interest…and prompts memorable Bible learning. Order these activities for your kids now—and see their eyes light up with excitement and understanding!

god sightings™

at egypt, you’ll encourage families to look for evidence of god in everyday life… and you’ll be amazed at what they see! In ancient Egypt, people built things like pyramids as monuments— or memorials—to their kings. We serve the one, true God—the one, true king! With God Sightings, kids and adults at your VBS will create a new, personalized monument to God as a reminder of all the ways he’s active in our lives… …in a sunset …in a rainstorm …in a laugh …in a kind word …all over your Egypt VBS—and beyond!

how god sightings™ work… On Day 1 at Egypt, the Celebration Leader will explain that God Sightings are evidence of the one, true God—all around us, every day! He or she will challenge kids and adults to start looking for things that God has done or made, or practice sharing God’s love and being a God Sighting. Beginning Day 2, Egyptian Families will spend time sharing about their own God Sightings. Family Leaders write these on a God Sighting Stone, using single words or short phrases to capture the God Sightings shared within the Family. Then one Family Member will take the God Sighting Stone to be used in the building of a monument to the one, true God. By the end of the week your monument will be complete—and it’ll be something you’ll want to keep up for weeks!
