*ONLINE EVENT* Hey Immanuel families! We know this year has been a
Hey Immanuel families! We know this year has been a wild one and, while we won’t be able to have our regular scheduled Vacation Bible School program in the same way, we here at Immanuel wanted to at least give you a piece of VBS to get you excited about building your foundation on Jesus as we build a program that we hope to offer in the future when it is safe for kids to gather in groups again.
Introducing, Immanuel’s Concrete and Cranes VBS Preview Party! From June 22nd to 26th, we will be sharing awesome Bible lessons and activities for you and your kids to participate in every day at 10am online at ibclive.org! This year’s theme is all about construction and building our foundation on Jesus Christ (not on things that fall apart). We will learn that when the storms of life come, we need the One who will never leave us, the one who assures us that our true worth comes from being His children. We will also discover that He who began a good work will be faithful to complete it in us. We’re all a work in progress, and life is a hard-hat zone. But just wait ‘til you see what God will do! Such a great lesson to learn right?! We hope you and your kiddos will join us live at ibclive.org and on social media that week! And if you would like to be notified of our future VBS plans, register here.

- Monday’s Craft has a couple of variations. The original craft requires a solid color paper bag. It can be a brown lunch bag, or a gift bag, some chalk, scissors, the attached heart template, tape and a marker. If you don’t have a bag, they can certainly make the craft on a plain piece of paper, and if you don’t have chalk, one f our crafters show how to dog the craft using paint and a q-tip instead.
- Tuesday’s craft requires popsicle sticks in any size and color, markers and some tape.
- Wednesday’s craft requires a paper plate, the same heart template from Monday, yarn or string, a single hole punch, tape and a marker. We also used a big plastic needle to help lace the yarn, but if you don’t have one, you can just tape around the end of the yarn to make an aglet, like on a shoelace.
- Thursday’s craft is messy, so we recommend using a big trash bag or a plastic tablecloth to cover your workspace, that way kids can do their project right on it and then roll it up and throw the mess away. You’ll also need a piece of heavier paper (yardstick is best but use what you’ve got!) shaving cream, food coloring, a couple of popsicle sticks, scissors a marker and the attached cross template.
- Finally for Friday we will be doing some building. Kids will need more popsicle sticks, school glue (not a glue stick), twine and some bird seed (you can add that later, it doesn’t have to be available during the craft)
