BOLT At Home VBS Curriculum for Home & Church

BOLT Web banner.jpgI was recently invited to take a look at a new resource to help families and churches with a VBS which is able to be an at-home, virtual VBS. BOLT is the resource and it is available to families to use at home with the children they love and to churches to use with the families in their community.

You will find information about this new VBS at the following link. I was sent the Day Two lesson, so I would be able to take a closer look. I like the following . . . 
  • It provides solid Bible teaching.
  • It is easy to use with the children you love and with the families in your church.
  • It provides opportunities to engage children/families in the learning.
  • I like the daily Origami project - although the cheering and commentary in the background are distracting.
  • I love the music from Ben Calhoun.
The three day scope and sequence covers the following . . . 

Day 1: Parable of the Sower and the Seed​ (Luke 8:4-15)
  • Big Idea: I can listen to Jesus
  • Memory Verse: Psalm 119:105

Day 2: Jesus Walks on Water (Matthew 14:22-36)
  • Big Idea: I can focus on Jesus
  • Memory Verse: Proverbs 3:5

Day 3: Jesus Chooses His Disciples (Luke 5:1-11)
  • Big Idea: I can follow Jesus
  • Memory Verse: Romans 8:39

Bolt's creators say; "The team at GO! Curriculum is hard at work designing a 3-day virtual VBS that is custom made for churches and families during the COVID19 shutdown. We have thought through every aspect of the VBS experience and made it so user friendly that any family can easily do it at home. With minimal preparation, easy to follow instructions, and a video that leads kids step-by-step through each day, BOLT VBS is the perfect quarantine-friendly solution for your church or family.

BOLT works whether you have 2 people or 2,000. If your area is still under a strict quarantine, a single family can perform BOLT by themselves with as few as one parent and one child. If parents feel comfortable gathering with more people, they can invite as many neighbors, friends, and family as they would like.
Because of this, BOLT is the perfect outreach event! You can even encourage leaders who do not have children of their own to host BOLT virtual VBS in their own neighborhood. Think of it as the ultimate backyard VBS event to help Christian families share the Gospel in a fun way at home."

Check it out - it may be a great fit for your church and/or the families you know.
