July 15–19, 2019

During Vacation Bible School this year kids will discover that God is good through all of life’s challenges. Life can be wild for kids-full of ups and downs and twists and turns. It can often feel chaotic and out of control. At ROAR! VBS kids will experience the solid foundation of God’s goodness– something they can stand on, cling to, hold and remember when the wild side of life doesn’t feel so fun or adventurous.

It is our HOPE that kids will deepen their friendship with a loving and good God who empowers them to boldly face life’s challenges.

Embrace the Fruits of the Spirit

Embrace the Fruits of the Spirit is a children’s curriculum designed to help children discover the fruits of the spirit and how to apply them in their daily lives while exploring the Caribbean. In this material you will meet the children of Cuba, Haiti, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, and Colombia. See how the children of these countries live out their values in their daily lives.

Each lesson contains a letter from a child in that country, a story from the Bible that demonstrates a fruit of the spirit, a craft, a game, and a song. Connect your children to Global Ministries’ Caribbean Initiative and help them see how their faith is connected to real children and real places in the world today. The Bible stories are paired with children today, encouraging children to consider how these lessons apply to their own lives.
