Hay Day: Growing in Friendship with Jesus, the Weekend VBS 2013 from Group.
Key Verse: Our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.
Bible Translation: New Living Translation (NLT)
Group's Weekend VBS format is a perfect fit for small churches, churches new to VBS, or any church that wants to run a condensed VBS program. You will plan two sessions of 2.5 hours plus a Sunday morning celebration with the full church, for a total of 6 hours. Children in Kindergarten - 6th Grade are in mixed age groups; preschool children join the large group for the opening and closing and have their own Bible learning time. Hay Day is light on the budget and time commitment, but not on content. Kids will enjoy a 'hay-larious' time focused on one fundamental Bible truth - Jesus will always love us.
Hay Day Bible Point: Jesus will always love us.
Day 1: Jesus befriends Zacchaeus (Luke 19: 1-10)
Day 2: Jesus dies and comes back to life. (John 19 - 21)
