Did you know that Lutheran Outdoor Ministries (LOM), a non-profit organization that supports the outdoor ministries of the ELCA, has a Vacation Bible School Curriculum for use by congregations? LOM’s curriculum from the last few years, including the 2016 theme, “The Jesus Way,” is available in a bundle for use in congregational VBS programs. As Augsburg Fortress no longer produces an annual VBS curriculum, this could be a valuable tool for the congregations that you work with who are looking for a curriculum with a solid theological background.
The bundle includes the preschool, lower elementary/day camp Bible studies, crafts, games, and graphics. The curriculum is perfect for churches looking to create continuity between the camp and VBS experience, or those simply looking for a new and creative approach to VBS. Plus, this VBS curriculum is also great for churches who are trying to be a little more green. The curriculum is downloaded once it is purchased, so churches don’t need to worry about the extra waste (or cost) that comes with buying a fancy boxed VBS set.
