Group’s Weekend VBS is:
If you don’t do VBS today or if the traditional 5-day VBS just isn’t working for your church...let Group’s Weekend VBS™ go to work for you! download overview guide »
Just two 2½-hour sessions and one Sunday Celebration. You choose the time and days—whatever works best for your church.
Every session of Group’s Weekend VBS focuses on the same simple, powerful Point: Jesus will always love us.
No crafts? HayDay 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 a teenage or adult leader for each day’s adventures. It really works, and discipline problems practically disappear.
This morning service for the whole congregation is designed to let the kids grow as they share what they’ve learned at VBS. And since no practice is necessary, your job just got even easier!
Preschoolers join the other kids for the opening and closing and enjoy their own Bible-learning activities in between.
At HayDay, kids learn one important Bible Point, which is reinforced through Bible adventures, a key Bible verse, songs, and hands-on activities. Your VBS kids will also learn about two amazing Bible stories! download overview guide »
Day 1: Jesus befriends Zacchaeus. (Luke 19:1-10)
Day 2: Jesus dies and comes back to life. (John 19–21)
"Our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God." (Romans 5:11)
Jesus will always love us.

At HayDay vacation Bible school, kids learn the way they learn best—through interactive experiences. Not all kids learn the same, so HayDay VBS offers several stations to meet the needs of all kinds of learners. download overview guide »
This easy-to-understand Rotation Chart will show you how all the stations fit together.
Check out this sneak peek of HayDay VBS in action and catch a quick glimpse of what happens in every station!
Songs and motions will teach the Bible Point to your musical learners. Everyone begins their VBS time together and you’ll plant seeds of bold Bible truth with a fun mix of classic and brand-new praise songs.
It’s not your typical game time! Kinesthetic (physical) learners will jump, move, and run with activities that connect to the Bible Point in active ways.
Kids explore Bible stories in thought-provoking, interactive, multi-sensory ways, then join the conversation and discuss their discoveries. It’s another great station for your physical learners as well as introspective learners!
Any one of the 3 Projects-With-A-Purpose options will provide interpersonal learners with the opportunity to practice God’s love as they create special gifts for others.
This station includes dramatic and crowd-involving activities to help linguistic and visual learners remember and apply each day’s Bible Point and Bible verse.
This one-hour Sunday Celebration gets the whole congregation involved.
One of the best parts about HayDay VBS—incredible music! Check out these songs that make it easy to get everyone worshiping.
