BACKYARD VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Join us in our quest to bring VBS to every backyard!
Welcome to the Bolt Backyard VBS! With minimal preparation, easy to follow instructions, and a video that leads you and your kids step-by-step through each of the 3 days, BOLT is designed to bring all of the fun and faith-formation from bible school to the comforts of your home!
Are you ready to BOLT into action? BOLT is a quarantine-friendly VBS designed for families to experience at home. During BOLT, kids will participate in fun games that illustrate what it means to listen to, focus on, and follow Jesus.
We are so excited to announce that VBS WILL BE HAPPENING this year! With one modification, though. Instead of you bringing your kids to VBS, we’re bringing VBS to your kids.
This summer, we’ll be using a quarantine-friendly VBS called BOLT. With minimal preparation, easy-to-follow instructions, and a video that leads you and your kids step-by-step through each of the 3 days, BOLT is designed for you to perform with your family at home. It’s so simple!
During BOLT, your family will participate in fun games that illustrate what it means to listen to, focus on, and follow Jesus. Depending on your pace, you can expect that each day’s experience will last about an hour and a half. It’s great for kids 4 and up. Even middle and high school kids can enjoy it!
If you want to get a better idea of what BOLT is, you can watch the Day 2 sample video here. (But don’t let your kiddos see it just yet—we want to save the fun for later.)
There’s something else we’re really excited about—this could also be an amazing outreach opportunity. If you feel comfortable gathering with more people, you can invite as many neighbors, friends, and family to your house for BOLT as you would like. It’s such an easy and fun way to share the good news of Jesus with our community. We’ll be sending a printable invitation for you to use or you can share our social media posts with anyone you want to invite! Join our Facebook Group “St. Mark’s UMC KidMin” to stay up to date!
Click the “Sign Up Here” button to be taken to our registration page. Once you register, we’ll send you more information about BOLT VBS. Each registration will receive a BOLT Bag filled with game and craft supplies for the number of children you plan to attend and instructions for each day with links to the teaching videos. Our BOLT bags will be available for pickup on July 11th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00p.m.
We encourage everyone to use the video links the week of July 13th-15th, as this is when we’ll be posting live on our Facebook pages about all the fun we’re having, but if the following week works better for your family, we’ll have our video links available through July 31st.
In the meantime, get your family excited about BOLT. This is going to be SO MUCH FUN!
