GRAB YOUR CAMERA. WILD ENCOUNTERS ARE COMING! Start up the all-terrain vehicle—you’re headed on a wild adventure! With your camera in hand, you’ll encounter elephants and egrets, polar bears and penguins, cockatoos and crocodiles. As you gather snapshots of exotic animals, you’ll also examine snapshots of Jesus in the Bible. Kids will experience opportunities to respond to the gospel through every encounter, filling this summer with moments to go from bewildered to believing.

THE HEART OF VBS LifeWay’s VBS team knows that for most churches, VBS is the biggest evangelistic opportunity of the year. On average, 10% of kids who attend VBS are not affiliated with a church family. That’s why every element of In the Wild VBS—Worship Rally, Bible study, crafts, music, missions, recreation, and snacks—ties to the gospel. TM

THEME VERSE But these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. John 20:31

Students & Adults This summer, students and adults will focus in on some amazing, real-life encounters with Jesus. Each encounter is like a snapshot—a specific moment in time captured on the pages of Scripture. Through VBS, students and adults will discover that each snapshot of Jesus is an opportunity to respond to the gospel. And when put together, these isolated encounters clearly reveal the most amazing truth of all—Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the Son of God, and by believing we can have life in His name.

2:41-52

Today’s Point: Jesus understood His purpose. Today’s Purpose: Leaders will help participants understand that Jesus came to do His

Father’s will.

DAY 2: Encounter at the River

Matthew 3:1-17

Today’s Point: Jesus is the Son of God. Today’s Purpose: Leaders will lead participants to affirm that Jesus is God’s Son based on the

Bonus Verse: I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God. John 1:34

DAY 3: Encounter on the Water

Matthew 14:22-33

Today’s Point: Jesus proved He is God’s Son. Today’s Purpose: Leaders will guide participants to realize that because Jesus is God’s Son,

He alone has the power to save people from their sin.

Bonus Verse: Don’t let your heart be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. John 14:1 Wild encounters are coming. Invite the students and adults in your community to zoom in and focus on Jesus!

Student Resources See page 26. Adult Resources - See page 27.

DAY 4: Encounter at the Tomb John

20:1-18

Today’s Point: Jesus rose from the dead. Today’s Purpose: Leaders will lead participants to recognize that Jesus’ death, burial, and

resurrection are all fulfillments of prophecy. Bonus Verse: Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
