Join us in a world of wonder that will delight our senses while captivating our hearts and minds at The Great Jungle Journey: An Epic Cruise from Genesis to Revelation”.

With this VBS, we will make stops at seven ports of call along the way – each starting with a C. These represent seven key biblical events – the 7 C’s of History

Day 1: Creation

Our first C takes us back to the beginning of time and the creation of the universe when it was all good. Did the universe start with a big bang or did God create it?

Day 2: Corruption and Catastrophe

Next, Adam sinned, which affected his descendants, who were so wicked that God sent a global flood as judgment for their sin.

Day 3: Confusion

The fourth C checks out the events that began at the tower of Babel. Can this be where all the people groups originated from?

Day 4: Christ and the Cross

At these stops, we realize once again that man is sinful and needs a Savior, Halleluiah. God provides one in his Son!

Day 5: Consummation

The last C shows the thrilling conclusion to history when all goes back to very good again, and – best news ever – God wins against sin and Satan.

Jungle Jam Assembly

Excitement and adventure await from the first minute of each day when kids meet in travel groups. The groups gather at the Jungle Jam Assembly, a high-energy beginning that includes wacky intros, lively songs, a Mission Moment and prayer.

Then they are off to rotate through various sites.

Finally, everyone heads back to the Jungle Jam Assembly for the closing, where there’s more singing, contest results, and the highly anticipated daily drama. This follows a jungle river cruise that plans to make stops at different ports of call but faces a catastrophe that affects the plan, resulting in lots of unexpected rainforest adventures. Prepare to swing into the fun as we head out on our jungle river cruise. See you in the rainforest!

Family Fellowship Meal

There will be a family fellowship meal for all family members prior to the 2024 VBS The Great Jungle Journey event each evening. The meal starting time will be 5:15pm. We look forward to seeing each of you for a meal and fellowship prior to our event.

Every day, our kids are bombarded with questions:

  1. Did God really create everything?
  2. Why do bad things happen?
  3. Was Noah’s ark real?
  4. Why do I need to be saved?
  5. Can I trust the Bible?

At this VBS, your kids will explore the biblical answers to these questions as they set off on an epic adventure from Genesis to Revelation. Amid sloths, butterflies, river dolphins, and dart frogs, your children will sail along on a fun jungle cruise, stopping at seven ports of call. These ports are the 7 C’s of History:

  1. Creation
  2. Corruption
  3. Catastrophe
  4. Confusion
  5. Christ
  6. Cross
  7. Consummation

Kids will discover how these events shape our world, and they will learn to reconnect the Bible to their everyday life.

Prepare to swing into fun as we head out on The Great Jungle Journey!

Adult / Parent Event ~ Connected Families Workshop

Parenting is complicated. The Connected Family Parenting Workshop will provide you with an easy to remember framework that simplifies your parenting. It will help you become a more thoughtful and more intentional parent.

The discipline of misbehaving children can be hard and overwhelming. When you apply the techniques in this workshop you will feel empowered to confidently lead your child and connect with them in a more meaningful way.

The framework consists of the following four principles:

  1. CORRECT – Galatians 6:1 ~ You are responsible for your actions.
  2. COACH – Ephesians 6:4 ~ You are called and capable.
  3. CONNECT – Malachi 4:6; Luke 1:17 ~ You are loved no matter what.
  4. FOUNDATION – Ephesians 1:3 ~ You are safe with me.
