Knights of North Castle: Quest for the King's Armor, invites children to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power by exploring how we put on the armor of God. Kids will take on the role of brave Knights and begin their quest each session by opening the King's Book.
Due to the coronavirus, the decision was made to create an online VBS this summer. This gave us unforeseen challenges, but also wonderful opportunities to find new ways of sharing the love of Jesus with children.
How It Works
VBS was traditionally 5 days of Bible stories, crafts, science, music, and connection with friends! Our new online VBS format will still include all these major elements, but spread out over five weeks.
- Week 1: June 29-July 3
- Week 2: July 6-10
- Week 3: July 13-17
- Week 4: July 20-24
- Week 5: July 27-31
Each week’s activities will focus on one Bible Story and provide opportunities for a daily activity that we estimate will take 10-25 minutes.
It is our hope this will allow families to experience all the AWESOME VBS content, but in flexible, bite-sized chunks. We hope your child can participate in all 5 weeks, but since it’s all online it is completely flexible!
Sample Weekly Format
Monday video includes the Bible story, music videos, and a puppet show! Everything to get the week started!
Weekly craft kit containing the materials needed to take home and complete on your own. Kits will be available for pick-up in advance. An instructional craft video will be available for your child to watch!
Always a favorite among the children. You will be provided a grocery list of items needed to create each snack along with an instructional video. You can modify it for your child’s allergies.
Weekly science experiment videos you can watch and try at home. If trying any experiment at home, parental participation is highly recommended.
Weekly music and sing-a-long videos for your child to sing and dance along with at home.
Bible Story & Small Group Discussion
Each elementary age-group will Zoom on Friday (2:00 – 2:40 pm.) to connect with each other, talk about their week, and discuss the Bible story with their small group leader.
How Much Parent Involvement is Needed?
We know parents are busy during the day and online VBS has been created with that in mind! Online VBS is structured around a daily 10-minute video and a 15-20 minutes parent-child activity. Parents will be given an easy to follow schedule of each week’s activities and you can structure your child’s week as it fits your families’ schedule. As always, we are here to help should you run into any questions!
Do I need to Register?
Yes, please register each child today! Your $10 registration fee will help us offset costs for T-shirts, Take-Home CDs, and art supplies for the full five weeks. As always, scholarships are available to anyone who needs it! Please register by June 15 to guarantee shirt size, CD and crafts.
