Standard 2014 VBS

See a review of the Standard 2014 VBS theme, Jungle Safari.

Our Review:

Standard Publishing has hit another one out of the park with this year's VBS Theme Jungle Safari, where kids "Explore the Nature of God" and "Search for the Priceless Treasure of God."

Once again, Standard has provided a VBS option which is Biblically sound and offers a great value for your investment.

Directors' manuals and teachers' lessons are well-organized and easy to use, while all of the printed materials are neatly coordinated with a special color and symbol for each day.  Posters and decorating ideas help keep the theme and the clear Bible message in full view of the kids.

Again this year, the award-winning Christian music artist, Yancy, has teamed up with Standard to provide exciting music and videos for this year's VBS theme.  (She's even in the videos!)  And of course, all of those videos, as well as all of the music and tracks, are completely reproducible. You can also recreate the music with your church's own band and singer.

There is a wonderful new Missions rotation this year, where the kids learn "Service with a Mighty Purpose."  Standard is working with Back2Back Ministries to help provide care for orphans around the world.

Before I close, I have to mention that I love the "Lily Pad Playland" option for the Preschool Students.  What fun ideas and activities!

Big enough for big churches, and just right for medium or even smaller churches, Jungle Safari offers a great option for your VBS this summer!
