Jesus is Turnin' the Town Upside Down
A Brand New VBS
A lot of what God, and then Jesus, did was very upside down or backwards to the way the world thinks. David winning the battle with Goliath, shepherds being the first to hear the Savior had come, fishermen being chosen to spread the most important message even given to humans, these are just a few of the upside down/backward things we read about in scripture. One of the most important upside down/backwards thing in the Bible is Jesus, the perfect One, dying in place of all the imperfect ones. When we realize that all of our goodness is like filthy rags, but God chose us anyway, the upside downness of God’s plan seems a lot less backward.
This is the message of this VBS. Read below to see the overview, hear a few songs and find out how you can order for your church's Vacation Bible School Ministry.
Every aspect of the event will point the kids to these simple truths, the Upside Down Themes for the five days:
- All of my goodness is not good enough
- God chose me even though no one else does
- Jesus, the One with no sin, died for me, to pay the price for my sin
- Death is not the end, and the King wants to be my friend
- God helps us praise even when things aren’t good
