VBS 2012 Top Ten Countdown   Tied #8 Children\s Ministry Youth#9 – Babylon by Group Publishing

Content – Kids and adults will learn what it meant for Daniel and his friends to live out their faith in a faithless culture and be challenged to choose to live their faith in their everyday lives, every day as they learn about; how Daniel and his friends were captured and taken to Babylon, when Daniel interpreted Nebuchadnezzer’s dream, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego survive the fiery furnace, Daniel chooses to pray even though it may get him in trouble and how God saved Daniel from the lions!

Theme – as kids and adults “journey” to “Ancient Babylon” each day, they’ll discover they’re not much different from Daniel and his friends – and they too can courageously keep faith in a faithless culture

Music - Group’s music is what we have come to expect from Group – original, new songs which fit their theme and familiar praise songs, all presented with excellent music and motions and chosen to reinforce the Bible lessons – sure to become favorites for churches everywhere. This year the songs are – Through it All, Watching Over You, Stand Firm, Only a Prayer Away, Awesome God, Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone), Where Do I Go, How Can I Keep From Singing, Jehovah Jireh and We Bow Down.

Ease of Use – You might think a VBS/event with a Bible theme, Marketplace shops, and different “locations” would be complicated to pull off, but Group makes it easy with all the information they provide and step by step directions. Group breaks each part down into do-able portions which when they are all put together, allows you to create “Ancient Babyon”!

Cost – One kit is available at the cost of $124.99.
