I have another "sneak peek" at VBS 2013 for you . . . Colossal Coaster World from LifeWay! Along with having this as their VBS for 2013, it looks like LifeWay is also doing something new with their Colossal Coaster World Backyard Kid's Club kit - I'll be looking forward to being able to sit down and take a closer look at these! Lifeway says, "Through every twist, turn, and dive, Colossal Coaster World will challenge kids to face their fears and trust God. There's excitement around every curve as kids learn that God has given them a spirit of power, love, and sound judgment. This evangelistic VBS is the ultimate ride. At the end of the week, kids will want to do it all over again!" Let's take a look at their scope and sequence -
2 Timothy 1:7 - For God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love, and sound judgment. (HCSB)
