Hero Central

Author: Cokesbury January 5, 2017

This 2017 VBS curriculum from Cokesbury teaches children about heroes in the Bible as it guides them to be confident in their own strength and confidence in God.  The children travel throughout the day in Hero Groups (like speedsters, rescuers, champions, healers, protectors) and visit a variety of activity centers such as science, crafts, storytelling and mission. The curriculum provides flexibile formats for use in single classroom, weekend VBS, one-day VBS, or evening VBS.  The Bible stories for each day are as follows:

  • David Anoints Samuel (1 Samuel 16)
  • Abigail Saves the Day (1 Samuel 25)
  • Jesus goes to the Temple (Luke 2)
  • The Beatitudes (Matthew 4)
  • Pentecost (Acts 2)

In connection with these stories, children are taught that heroes have heart, hope, courage, wisdom and do good in the world. Like other publishers, Cokesbury provides a DVD for assembly time, a plethora of planning ideas for the committee leaders, and plenty of options to choose from for games, activities and crafts customized for different-sized groups or differences in learners.
