1. Day 1 Recap

Today at the in-person portion of VBS we sang the Treasured theme song, met Dr. Digglestone (an adventurous treasure hunter), explored how God showed Samuel that David – the youngest of many brothers – would be the best king, created Decoder Disks to write and solve mysterious messages (even though we are never a mystery to God), and joined in a wacky game show to celebrate all that God knows about us!

2. Bible Adventures

In today’s story, we learn about when God identified David as the future king. Want even more detail? You can read the full passage in 1 Samuel 16:1-13 in your own bible at home!

3. Imagination Station

Use a Decoder Disk to write and solve secret messages, and remember that we are never a “mystery” to God because He knows us!

4. Vine Dining

Enjoy a delicious Get-to-Know-You Goodie! We’ll get to know each other better by making food pictures that tell something about us. You might turn your food into a picture of your house, or a favorite animal, or sport. Then guess what each picture tells about the others around you! Even if you couldn’t guess what some pictures meant, God knows exactly what each picture means because God knows YOU! The Bible tells us, “O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me.”

Ingredients Needed: snack plate, various snack items (ideas include veggie straws, Twizzlers, crackers, puffed rice, grapes, strawberries, marshmallows, etc.)

5. KidVid Cinema

Sam is a puzzle pro who knows that he’s no puzzle to God, because God knows everything about him.

7. Dance and Sing Along!
