Sneak Peek VBS 2013 - Kingdom Rock - Group Publishing

Kingdom Rock Logo Color ThumbI LOVE VBS! It is such a wonderful opportunity to get children to focus on one theme for five days and introduce them to Jesus! It is also a wonderful opportunity to help children grow in their walk with Jesus! And, it is a great opportunity for children to be at church and have fun! Lots of reasons to love VBS! So, I look forward each year to when publishers announce their VBS themes for the following year - they used to wait until November to do this, but now they announce in May and June! 

I'm happy today to share with you a "sneak peek" at the 2013 VBS theme for Group Publishing - Kingdom Rock - Where Kids Stand Strong for God! Group says, "Enter the epic adventure which empowers kids to stand strong. Here, God’s victorious power isn’t a fairy tale—it changes kids forever." Let's take a look at the scope and sequence for Kingdom Rock -

you are my strength."

helps us stand strong.
(Psalm 18:1)

God's love. (Psalm 23)

each other and build each
other up." (1 Thessalonians 5:11)

anything; instead, pray about
everything." (Philippians 4:6)

helps us stand strong.

always, for the Lord God is the
eternal Rock." (Isaiah 26:4)

and comes back to life.
(Luke 22:39–24:12)

to guide my feet and a light
for my path." (Psalm 119:105)

God’s way. (2 Kings 22:1–23:23)
