A SOLID THEME:
Some VBS programs are only a few days and others last for an entire week. Figuring out what theme would work is probably the first thing you need to do. How about taking them on an epic adventure with Heroes of the Faith?. Based on Hebrews 11, you’ll get to teach the kids about the real action heroes of the Bible. You can assure the kids that these heroes have as much power as Flash, Superman and Batman. Just greater in every way!
