At Maker Fun Factory, as children are surrounded by God's Word, the reality of God's love gains new meaning and relevance to their everyday lives. Plus, they'll have an amazing time trying out new games, songs, awesome science experiments and crafts, and more!
Children will be assigned into Crews - small mixed-age groups of up to seven plus a Crew Leader and an Assistant Crew Leader. Crews will be comprised of rising first and second graders and rising third through fifth graders. Rising kindergarteners will be in their own crews. Crews travel together for each day's adventure. Each day crews will visit:
Sound Wave Sing & Play - The day begins at Sound Wave Sing & Play. All crews are together as they are introduced to the daily Bible Point, key Bible verse, and Bible Memory Buddy. Each day, kids sing the Maker Fun Factory theme song in addition to other fun praise songs.
Tuesday through Friday crews will discuss their God Sightings which are everyday clues that God is present, passionate, and powerful.
Bible Discovery - At Bible Discovery kids will experience the daily Bible story in a hands-on way.
Snack Factory - Each day kids will eat snacks that connect to the key Bible verse and the daily Point.
Crafts/Imagination Station - Kids will dive into exciting crafts and experiments that connect to the day's Bible story and Point.
KidVid Cinema - At KidVid Cinema, children will "meet" five real kids who are learning about and embracing the way God made them. They will also learn about our Operation Kid-to-Kid mission project. This year we will be collecting money to help provide clean water for children in the remote villages of Peru. For just $5.00 per person, kids at VBS can help provide clean water for an entire year for a child.
Game Makers - Each day the children will play games that connect with the daily Bible Point.
Funshop Finale - All crews will end the day at Funshop Finale. Drama experiences and engaging object lessons are used to help kids apply what they've learned throughout the day.
