ReNew: The Green VBS

Author: Sparkhouse May 13, 2017

Make this summer a summer for ecological stewardship with “The Green VBS” program ReNew. Children explore Jesus’s parable of the sower (Mark 4:1-9)  in the context of how we live together in the gift of God’s creation. The program teaches creation stewardship while it also leads kids and leaders to grow in faith. There are three activity sites daily–Self, Community and World. Each site uses a multiple-intelligence approach in teaching how to care for creation through service-oriented activities. The five days follow five planting process themes: Planting Seeds, Taking Root, Growing, Facing Challenges, and Living Together. The curriculum weaves together an approach of delight for God’s created world, an awareness of how God wants us to grow rooted in a larger whole, and how our response to environmental concern is rooted in love of God.
