2019 Vacation Bible School
(for children ages 5-11 years old)
6:00 to 8:00 PM
Curriculum: Armor of God
(based on Ephesians 6:11-18)
During these 4 days, children will learn how to be warriors for God. Paul tells us in Ephesians that we are caught in a spiritual war, not to scare us, but to make us aware that we need to be prepared for life’s everyday battles. Each day, we will learn about pieces of armor that will help us in this spiritual battle. During craft time, children will make various pieces of armor that they will be able to wear.
Monday – The Belt of Truth
Tuesday – The Breastplate of Christ’s Righteousness and Shoes of the Gospel of Peace
Wednesday – The Shield of Faith
Thursday – The Helmet of Salvation and the Sword of the Spirit
