UPDATE: Registration for FOCUS VBS is now closed. Even though the deadline for the customized kit has passed you can still participate virtually! To gain access, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
You may be tired of VIRTUAL everything but with a lot of events and activities being canceled this summer, we know many households are searching for opportunities to have fun, make memories and learn together. And THAT is where FOCUS VBS comes into play.
FOCUS is a VBS like we’ve never done before. It is flexible and customizable enough that every household can participate. Preschoolers through preteens will have a blast as they discover how to trust in what they CAN’T see because of what they CAN see by putting the focus on God and His amazing plan for us. We are turning our eyes to focus on Jesus- who shows us what God is like. Jesus always focused his eyes, his heart, and his mind on God. And as disciples we want to do the same.
How will this work? We will provide a customized kit to households who register by June 12. Almost everything you need will be IN the box. Awesome, right? The experience will be spread out over 5 weeks, beginning June 29th and ending August 5th.
On Monday of each week, we will provide a link to a short teaching video for you to watch.There will be separate preschool and elementary videos, but both have the same story. Depending on the ages in your household, YOU can decide which video to watch!
On Wednesday evenings there is an optional small group option. If your child opts IN, they will be put into a small group with 2 leaders who will have a short meeting via Zoom where they’ll do small group games/ activities. If you opt OUT of this, you can do the small group activities at home with your family. OR….maybe you have older siblings (or friends with teens) that would love to help facilitate this in person!
On Fridays, we will issue a Weekly Challenge….fun, yet safe things you can do together….and by posting pictures on social media, you can qualify for some cool prize drawings!
Lastly, on August 5 we are planning an outdoor “I Spy” Family Experience to close out our VBS. Stay tuned for more details on this, as we keep our eyes on the current ND Smart Restart Guidelines.
The best part about this is you can do as little or as much of this as you want. And it is all with the help of your virtual VBS assistants…..Danelle and Melanie! But you won’t be able to do ANYTHING if you don’t get your hands on one of these boxes by registering before June 12!
Let us keep looking to Jesus. He is the one who started this journey of faith. And he is the one who completes the journey of faith. -Hebrews 12:2a NIRV
