 Amazing Encounters With Jesus
Grab your camera and set off into the wild to encounter the beauty of a natural world that declares God’s glory. LifeWay’s VBS for 2019 explores some of earth’s most beautiful creatures and sets up encounters with the one who created them all, Jesus! (John 20:31)

 "Lets look at the Bible stories that will be taught during LifeWay’s VBS 2019: In the Wild. Each true story recounts a real life encounter with Jesus. These “snap shots” of Jesus reveal His identity to us and help us to discover that Jesus is who He says He is—the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing we might have life in His name."

Theme Verse

John 20:31

But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

Zoom in! Focus on Jesus!

Zoom in! Focus on Jesus!
The Bible content each day focuses on encounters real people had with Jesus while He was on earth in the first century!

On Day 1, kids see Jesus through the eyes of the teachers when, as a boy, he learned and taught in the temple.

Day 2 brings the story of John the Baptist when he met Jesus at the Jordan river and heard God’s voice.

Day 3 introduces kids to the disciples who encountered Jesus walking on the water.

Day 4 Jesus’ disciples encounter God’s Son who returned from the dead .

Day 5, some of Jesus’ disciples encounter Him on the road to Emmaus and learn to believe He is who scripture says He is.

“In the Wild” will have kids embark as photographers, seeking to snap pictures in settings decorated to mimic animals’ natural habitats. Along the way, kids will also learn about real-life encounters people had with Jesus and discover how biblical snapshots of the Savior provide an opportunity to respond to the gospel.

“This is going to be such a fun theme,” said Melita Thomas, VBS specialist for LifeWay. “It’s a photo scavenger hunt in the wild where it’s possible to see absolutely anything.”

As kids explore different locales on the lookout for wildlife, they’ll also study eyewitness accounts of Jesus from the Gospels—stories to help them zoom in and focus on Christ.
