VBS 2013 - HayDay from Group

Weekend VBS HayDay Logo Color ThumbI'm delighted for the opportunity to share Group's weekend VBS with you . . . HayDay! 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 weekends . . . or they might be able to spread it out for one Saturday a month for a Summer of fun!

Group Publishing

  1. Jesus befriends Zacchaeus – Luke 19:1-10 
  2. Jesus dies and comes back to life – John 19-21
Setting – Down on the farm
Message – Jesus will always love us!
Focus – Evangelism, Application, Content

 Strengths –
  • HayDay 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 for kids to go do and tell about the following day
Group says, "HayDay is where kids grow in friendship with Jesus! They will explore the unending love and friendship Jesus offers them!" I love the focus in both lessons; each station on Jesus' love! Certainly this is a message children – and adults - need to hear. HayDay 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 HayDay from Group!
