App expands VBS impact for LifeWay

03/19/2017

The excitement and learning that takes place at Vacation Bible School can happen anywhere now, thanks to the LifeWay VBS Galactic Starveyors app.For the fourth consecutive year, LifeWay Christian Resources has released an app connected with its latest VBS material, Christian Telegraph reports according to Baptist Press.

The app provides churches and parents numerous opportunities to reinforce biblical lessons from VBS, according to Melita Thomas, VBS and kids' ministry specialist at LifeWay.

"The app is a wonderful tool for connecting church and home," Thomas said. "It also provides churches with an additional easy follow-up tool."

LifeWay VBS Galactic Starveyors app includes:

-- Interactive games (puzzles, memory verse game, etc.)

-- Digital coloring pages of the Bible story pictures

-- Music (VBS theme song plus all five daily VBS songs)

-- Bible stories designed for each age group

-- Choreography videos

-- Family devotions

-- "Takin' It Home" audio (interactive "radio drama")

-- Plan of salvation/Gospel presentation

-- Stellar Family Fun (list of activities families can do together)

Instead of simply asking their children what they did at VBS, the app places parents in an active role in their child's spiritual development, Thomas noted.

"Parents say they feel responsible for their child's spiritual growth but can feel ill-equipped to do that," she said. The app can "help parents take on those God-given roles and responsibilities."

Thomas said the app's usefulness extends before and after VBS. With many unchurched families attending VBS, the app can have an eternal impact. "Kids also enjoy reliving VBS over and over again," she said. "The app lets them engage with VBS long after the event is over."

It can also help churches in their preparation.

"While your average lay leader may have to wait a few more months to get their planning material and curriculum," Thomas said, "they can go ahead and get the app for themselves and get a jump on learning the music and the motions, studying the Bible stories and getting excited for VBS this year."
