Great Big Beautiful World VBS Theme
Respond to Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si' (On Care for Our Common Home)
Our newest theme invites children to see the ways God cares for the earth and challenges them to be part of caring for and preserving the created world. It breaks open the message of Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si' in an engaging and age-appropriate way! Featuring music by Bryan Sirchio, Jesse Manibusan, Steve Angrisano, and Chris Muglia.
- Enjoy the beauty and wonder of creation together.
- Invite children to love God the Creator and follow in the way of Jesus.
- Encourage children to notice the ways that we impact the natural world through our choices and actions.
- Challenge children and families to join God in caring for all of creation.
Each day starts with relationship-building, joint worship, music, prayer, and a dramatic presentation of the Bible story. This is a time to SOW seeds of friendship, joy, generosity, and wisdom. These seeds will GROW as children explore, create, play, and learn about God’s story at three response stations. In closing worship, children will be challenged to GO out into the world to care for the beautiful world God made.
