VBS 2023 Keepers of the Kingdom
As the drawbridge lowers, and gates open, we will charge into a world brimming with kings and kingdoms, majestic castles, fire-breathing dragons, and epic battles. Amidst the pages of Keepers of the Kingdom, the knights, and fair maidens learn how to be a part of God’s kingdom and wear the armor of God.
Day 1- July 19 from 6-8:30 pm: The Two Kingdoms & The Belt – We will discover that there are just two kingdoms—the kingdom of light versus the kingdom of darkness. One is ruled by the good King, Creator God. The other is ruled by the enemy, Satan. The Belt – We must decide our side. Those who become citizens of God’s good kingdom need to wear the armor of God daily, starting with the belt of truth that helps us have an unshakable trust in God’s Word, and live as truthful people.
Day 2- July 20 from 6-8:30 pm: The Breastplate and Shoes – The breastplate helps God’s children put on Christ’s righteousness and grow in right living. The shoes show us we can be at peace with God, which helps us stand firm in our Christian convictions and share Jesus with others.
Day 3- July 21 from 6-8:30 pm: The Shield and Helmet – The shield and helmet protect us from the enemy’s attacks—wrong thinking, discouragement, and deception. We learned to discern!
Day 4- FAMILY DAY!!- Saturday, July 22 from 10-1 pm- everyone is invited to join in, we will have our final lesson, and then a time of crafts, fun, and fellowship: The Sword and Prayer – The sword of the Spirit is the word of God, which helps us train our brains to know, memorize, love, and obey God’s Word. And as we battle, we must pray!
