VBS 2019 Special Friends Leader Guide
is filled with plans to help you provide for children, youth, and adults who have special needs in VBS. The resource is divided into three major sections:
- Administrative Guide—Guidelines for getting organized and ideas for choosing your format, adding resources to enhance Bible study, prayer strategies, prepping for the theme, and making a spiritual impact on learners. Also gives guidance for adapting the ideas included in other VBS 2019 resources to suit children with special needs who participate in VBS with their age-group peers.
- Teaching Plans for Kids—Specific plans for a self-contained class created just for kids with special needs, the plans are presented in a pick-and-choose format similar to Bible Studies For LifeTM Special Buddies. No specific time limits are suggested so that teaching plans can be adapted to meet the specific needs of learners.
- Teaching Plans for Students/Adults—Specific plans for a self-contained class created just for youth and adults with special needs, the plans are designed for one-hour Bible study sessions.
invites kids to grab their cameras and head out on a wild adventure—with elephants and egrets, polar bears and penguins, cockatoos and crocodiles. As kids gather snapshots of exotic animals, they will also examine snapshots of Jesus in the Bible. Kids experience opportunities to respond to the gospel through every encounter, providing endless moments to go from bewildered to believing as they get In the Wild at this summer’s VBS.
John 20:31 (CSB)
But these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
