2013 Dates Announced
Calvary Baptist Church is excited to announce the dates for Vacation Bible School. Join us June 3-7 from 6 pm to 8:30 pm as we teach God’s Word to the children in our community. You will not want to miss this great opportunity.
The 2012 Vacation Bible School Curriculum came to us from the Voice of the Martyrs. The Kids of Courage VBS theme will highlight Christian Persecution across the world.
“Our children have enjoyed serving at VOM headquarters and we greatly appreciate the ministry. We are delighted that through this VBS more children will be introduced to vital biblical concepts that will help them stay faithful when it’s not easy. Kids of Courage reveals the sacrifices Christians are making around the world to spread the gospel. It instills in young people a boldness to share their faith with others!”
— Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar, parents of TLC’s “19 Kids & Counting”
“Too often the Christian life is portrayed to children with a lack of realism—as a bed of thornless roses. Not so with this wonderful VBS curriculum. It is refreshingly honest, well-produced, Christ-centered, and God-glorifying.”
— Ray Comfort, best-selling author and television co-host, “The Way of the Master”
Each night, those attending were shown “underground” videos from Persecuted Christians. An example is below.
Our 2010 and 2011 Vacation Bible School Curriculum came from Desiring God Ministries. The ministry is directed by John Piper, the lead pastor at Bethlehem Baptist Church. The curriculum is known for it’s rich truths from God’s Word. Here is what one independent reviewer said about the curriculum:
“The folks at Children Desiring God are known for their solid and engaging children’s curriculum. Serious does not equal boring, of course, and their material is anything but that! I’ve always found children, both my own and the ones I teach at church, to be very responsive to their approach.”
