VBS 2014 - Blast Off! from Group Publishing

I'm delighted for the opportunity to share Group's weekend VBS with you . . .
Blast Off! 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!

Blast Off!
Group Publishing

  1. Men bring their friend to Jesus for healing – Luke 5:17-26 
  2. Jesus dies and comes back to life – Matthew 27:11-28:20
Setting – Outer Space
Message – God loves us, so . . . love each other!
Focus – Evangelism, Application, Serving, Content
  • Blast Off! has amazing, creative and engaging Bible lessons with a very, very strong evangelism focus!
  • I love the Project with a Purpose! Once again this year, Group gives churches the option of choosing 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, "As kids explore God’s infinite love, they’ll practice down-to-earth ways to love each other." I love the focus in both lessons; God loves us and we can love others! Certainly this is a message children – and adults - need to hear. Blast Off! 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! I absolutely LOVE their "Projects with a Purpose" - creative, engaging and fun way to get kids to focus on serving others! Excellent!

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 has a strong evangelism focus; most certainly take a look at Blast Off from Group!
