Get On Board!:
Cruising with God's Family
“God destined us for adoption as His children through Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of His will." (Ephesians 1:5, NRSV)
Motto: We Are Family!
Before our mothers and fathers knew our names, God knew us and loved us. God predestined us to be His sons and daughters, thus becoming His family through Jesus Christ. In this year's VBS, we will cruise with the Brown family and discover what it means to have been adopted into God's family, exploring family values and various ways of being as His sons and daughters. Being children of God is who we are; it is our identity. It pleases God to have each of us as His child. No matter what we have done or what we will do wrong, God will not change His mind about any of us--for in love God choose each of us and we are His most prized creation. So, get on board and let's enjoy this summer's cruise as God's adopted family!
As a result of experiencing these lessons, participants will do the following:
- Discover that it is in Christ that we have been adopted into God's family.
- Discover that in Christ we are free to live as God's children.
