You hear a lot about today’s kids being empowered with technology and information. And sometimes those tools give kids a voice and influence (think Kid President on YouTube). Yet, every kid understands what it’s like to feel powerless in life’s storms. After all, what can a kid do when someone has cancer or when friendships dissolve? Kids don’t have control when a parent loses a job. They’re helpless when friends move away. They feel incapable of helping solve so many of the huge problems around them. But the Bible assures us that we have power through Jesus: “This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead.” (Ephesians 1:19-20)
At Shipwrecked VBS, you’ll empower kids every day by giving kids responsibilities and opportunities to serve.
Every day, each child in the crew has an important Crew role—one that’s called on in a different station. Every day, one group of Crews makes snacks for the entire VBS. And, every day kids contribute to Operation Kid-to-Kid, a mission project that will change lives throughout Haiti. Through these simple tasks, kids experience the power they have to serve and help. Plus, during KidVid Cinema, kids hear the true story of Seth, a boy who was powerless in a medical issue. Kids discover how a real kid—just like them—relied on Jesus’ power to rescue him from a challenging time. Kids leave VBS emboldened with the power they have through Jesus. In our weakness, God’s strength can do powerful things.
