We are so excited to announce that VBS will be happening this year, but instead of you bringing your kids to VBS, we’re bringing VBS to your kids!
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 enjoy at home together. FBCA will provide access to the curriculum, and BOLT is so easy to use! If you are in the Northern Virginia area, be sure to sign up for a “BOLT Box” when you register. Each BOLT Box will be packed full with helpful resources and fun!
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 5 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—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. And feel free to share the registration information with friends so that they can participate at home as well. We ask that each BOLT VBS site register separately.
Together, let’s bolt towards faith in Jesus!
