This year we are taking the children on a Fear Factor Adventure. This journey that they take with us through the online portal, will help the children assess their fears and give them Biblical insight on how to handle them and mature in their spiritual life. The theme verse, Isaiah 33:6 says ‘He will be the sure foundation of your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure’. We would like to imprint upon their hearts that the fear of the Lord is the key to having a sure foundation in these chaotic times.
With this key, they can open a rich store of help and attain wisdom to manoeuvre through their struggles. The Bible, reminds us time and time again that a man who fears God, does not need to fear anything else. It is our desire and yearning that our children, even while they are still young, will learn to cultivate that fear of God and that in turn, would result in lives that are lived fearlessly and unapologetically for Him.
The VBS curriculum was written keeping in mind English-speaking urban children and the challenges they face every day and the mounting pressures at schools, colleges, and homes. It is an encouragement, to not be disheartened and feel threatened by these pressures. It is meant to be an appeal to keep their eyes on God and to live in obedience to Him alone. Focusing on that will give them the sure-footedness they need to navigate all the shaky ground they journey through.
