Families make authentic crafts in the Marketplace, chat with shopkeepers, and play games at the Olympic village each day. They’re interrupted as a surprise daily drama unfolds—always to reinforce the Bible Point.

When you’re in Rome—you’re Family! Each child joins a “Roman Family” of up to 10 kids—so 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. Choose your own, or one of the common Roman Family names listed.

And here are more great reasons to form Families… Family Leaders remind kids (and adults!) of daily Bible Points before Families 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!

At Rome, kids step into Bible history... Your kids won’t just hear about Paul—they’ll feel like they’ve stepped into Bible history to visit him. They’ll see the chain rubbing against Paul’s wrist and hear the gruff voice of Paul’s guard. Your kids will brush against Roman soldiers in a crowded Marketplace, then tiptoe to a secret cave where brave Christians huddle in prayer. They’ll feel the excitement and catch a whiff of danger as footsteps pass just inches from where they hide. At Rome, 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. Cement that Bible learning in place 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!

Cement the VBS learning—with Bible Memory Makers®! Your kids will long remember their visit to Rome—and these souvenir coins help that happen. Each day, every Roman Family member receives a specially minted Bible Memory Maker coin. Coins are engraved with special Scriptures, reminders of daily Bible Points. And coins are sized to fit perfectly inside the coin pouch participants receive during their first Family Time. Too cool to lose, these coins travel home daily as proud possessions—and prompt discussion with parents about what kids are learning at your VBS!

“Why does each person need a whole set of Bible Memory Makers? Can’t I just give one coin to each child?” You could…but which Scripture references and Bible Points would you prefer that kids forget? These memory makers do what they say—make memories as they’re handled and shown to friends, continuing to reinforce Bible truth... and share the gospel!
