LifeWay announces 2015 VBS theme

“Journey Off the Map—Unknown to Us, Known to Him” is the 2015 Vacation Bible School theme from LifeWay Christian Resources.

The description of the 2015 VBS theme invites students to “set out on a journey to uncharted territory where they will encounter the unexpected waiting around every bend. On this expedition of a lifetime, kids will need to stick close to their guide in order to survive. They will discover that Jesus is the ultimate guide on a journey uncharted by them, but known by Him.”

“Kids are being bombarded by loud voices telling them what they should do, where they should go, who they should be and what they should believe. The messages are confusing and misleading,” said Jerry Wooley, LifeWay VBS specialist.

Most previous VBS materials were geared to build to an evangelistic lesson later in the week. For 2015, LifeWay felt it would be better to introduce the idea of a personal relationship with Christ on the first day.

The theme verse for the week will be Isaiah 30:21: “And whenever you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear this command behind you: ‘This is the way. Walk in it.’”

Each day kids will discover more truths about Jesus as their guide:

  • Day 1—Know your guide
  • Day 2—Follow your guide
  • Day 3—Trust your guide
  • Day 4—Stay on track
  • Day 5—Keep watching
