The Weekend VBS Difference

If you don’t currently do VBS or if the traditional 5-day
VBS just isn’t working for your church…let Group’s
Weekend VBS go to work for you!

Vbs Space Monkey

Easy Weekend Format

Just two 2½ hour sessions and one Sunday Celebration. You choose the time and the days—whatever works best for your church.

Just One Point

Every session of Group’s Weekend VBS focuses on the same simple, powerful Bible Point: God loves us, each other!


No crafts? Blast Off VBS has something even better! Kids put God’s love into action by making special gifts for others in their church, community, and the world.


Kids of all ages join Crews with an adult or teenage leader for each day’s adventures. It really works, and discipline problems practically disappear.

Sunday Celebration

This morning service for the whole congregation is designed to let the kids share what they’ve learned at VBS. And since no practice is necessary, your job just got even easier!

Preschool Space Place

Preschoolers join the other kids for the opening and closing and enjoy their own Bible-learning activities in between.

Daily Bible Content—
Experiencing God’s Word

At Blast Off vacation Bible school, kids learn one Bible Point, which is reinforced through Bible adventures, a key Bible verse, songs, and hands-on activities. Your kids will also learn about two Bible stories!

Bible Stories

Day 1: Men bring their friend to Jesus for healing.
(Luke 5:17-26)


Day 2: Jesus dies and comes back to life. (Matthew 27:11–28:20)
