VBS 2012 - Rocky Point Lighthouse from Group

Rocky Point Lighthouse Starter KitI'm delighted for the opportunity to share Group's new weekend VBS with you . . . Rocky Point Lighthouse! The idea with this resource is to provide two affordable 2 1/2 hour sessions, plus a one hour celebration which churches could use over one weekend . . . or over three weekend . . . or they might be able to spread it out for one Saturday a month for a Summer of fun!

Rocky Point Lighthouse

Group Publishing

  1. Jesus heals a blind man – John 9:1-41 
  2. Jesus dies and comes back to life – Luke 23:26-24:53
Setting – Along the seaside at the Rocky Point Lighthouse!
Message – Rocky Point Lighthouse is where Kids Shine God's Light!  As Group says, “Kids will explore how God lights up their darkness and how they can shine God's love to others!”
Focus – Evangelism, Application, Content

 Strengths –
  • As I would expect, Rocky Point Lighthouse has amazing, creative and engaging Bible lessons with a very, very strong evangelism focus!
  • I love the Project with a Purpose! Churches may choose from three two-day service projects for their kids to work on to serve families in their church, community or world! Another huge “plus” for this is how affordable the projects are!!! Thank you Group for keeping it affordable!!!
  • “Huddle and a Prayer” time is great – love the way it helps kids see their crew leaders are praying for them!
  • Group once again has excellent and engaging Opening and Finale – with lots of energy and an abundance of creative ways to engage kids! Love it!
  • I really appreciate the price point - this is a pretty affordable option for most churches
  • Provides options for churches where a traditional five-day VBS just doesn't "fit" their ministry
  • I really love the idea of the "Sunday Celebration" for the kids, families and the entire church!
  • Love the songs - kids will LOVE them, too!
Would like to see –
  • a daily "live-it" activity - yes, there is a poster and stickers for kids to take home and use when they "shine God's light", but I'd still like to see a daily project for kids to go do and tell about the following day
Group says, "Each part of Rocky Point Lighthouse VBS is designed to connect your kids to God, create change in their hearts, and provide them with actionable ways to share God's love with others. After a weekend at VBS, your kids will be equipped to live out their faith, taking home what they learned–and share God's amazing love with others!" I love the focus in both lessons; each station on "shining" the light! Certainly this is a message children – and adults - need to hear. Rocky Point Lighthouse is a great option for a VBS with a strong focus on creatively engaging children in every learning station, solid evangelism, strong Bible content and application! If you are looking for a VBS option for just a weekend, or one you could spread over a month - or even the entire Summer - with a focus on engaging children and a strong evangelism focus, most certainly take a look at Rocky Point Lighthouse from Group!
