Hop, Skip, and Jump into God’s love is a free downloadable Vacation Bible School (VBS). It’s not a typical VBS with all the lights, bells, and whistles (well, we do use some whistles!) but a VBS whose goal is to be totally outside, safe for kids and families, and learn about Jesus. All material will be finished by May 3. (Things not included in this VBS include music scores or videos or registration materials or online sign ups.)
Bible stories are from the book of John, based on water, women, and Jesus:
Day 1: Water into Wine (John 2:1-11) Spark Story Bible, page 410.
Day 2: Woman at the Well (John 4) Spark Story Bible, page 420.
Day 3: Jesus is Anointed (John 12:1-8) Spark Story Bible, page 444.
Day 4: In the Garden/ Resurrection (John 20:11-18) Spark Story Bible, page 484
