Get ready for your an amazing summer in 2020! FOCUS VBS helps kids dive deeper into their faith by putting the FOCUS on God and His amazing plan for us. Your preschoolers through preteens will have a blast as they discover how to trust in what they CAN’T see because of what they CAN see.
This week kids explore four different ways we can FOCUS on God. Connect with kids to focus on Jesus, hear from God, pray anytime, talk to others about their beliefs and live for God!

Exploring Biblical Truths Through Creativity
Focus VBS allows you to choose which activity or activities will work best for your group, depending on size, age, and budget. Many crafts use commonly available supplies. There are multiple craft options for each day for different age groups. Each day also has STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math), which can be a great option for older kids.
Here is a sample of a Day 4 craft option - the Yarn Cross Art:
• Print the “Day 4 Bottom Line Labels” Activity Page on Avery® Presta™ #94218 labels or equivalent; one label for each kid
• Cardboard or foam core cut into cross shape; one for each kid
• Con-Tact® paper (Trace cross shapes on the back of the Con-Tact paper at least a half inch wider than the cross forms you’re using. The Con-Tact paper needs to wrap around the edge of the form.) Cut between the crosses for easy distribution, but you do not need to cut each one out.)
• Strong tape
• Colored yarn cut into pieces of many lengths

Orange VBS Distinctives
- Orange is a strategy designed to help church leaders and parents synchronize their efforts to fuel wonder, discovery and passion in the next generation. Yellow is symbolic of Jesus as the light of the world (the church). Red is symbolic of the heart of the home (the family). Together, red and yellow make Orange. Combine the influence of church + home, and there is a greater impact for faith in children.
"When adults learn to treat kids like they are made in the image of God, it increases a kid's potential to see God". (Reggie Joiner, reThink group)
