Survivor: Babylon VBS- Daniel's Courage in Captivity (A Holy Land Adventure)
July 15th - July 19th, 2018
Step back in time for this Holy Land Adventure week as we travel to Babylon without even leaving Dripping Springs, exploring Daniel’s adventures as a captive in a foreign land. Each day, you can become part of history as you see, hear, touch, and even taste what it was like to live in Babylon! You’ll experience the Bible-times Marketplace shops, visit Daniel, take part in teamwork-building games, sing and dance to lively Bible songs, join in hands-on mission helping both kids here and across the world, and sample tasty tidbits as you discover more about Daniel’s adventures in Babylon. These experiences make God’s Word come alive with new meaning for all who participate! Plus, everyone learns to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings.
Our dates are July 15-19 and we are trying something a little different this year. We are kicking off with a special Family Fun Night on Sunday July 15 from 4:30-7:30pm where the whole family can come be immersed in the Babylon Holy Land Adventure together. Then the kids participating and our youth and adults that are serving will continue the adventure Monday-Thursday 9am- Noon.
