June 11th – 15th

“Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale…” 

Get ready to “survive and thrive’ on a deserted island at Kidz Blast this year!

In our “Shipwrecked – Rescued by Jesus” program, we will be livin’ like Gilligan on a tropical isle full of fun and adventure. But as the title suggests, life’s hardships demand a rescuer and our hope is to show kids the way to their one and only rescuer, Jesus Christ.
 
You don’t have to be a grown up to know that everybody experiences storms and shipwrecks in life. But at Kidz Blast this year, we will teach your kids that, no matter the circumstance, we can be rescued by Jesus. Each day the Bible Point, Story, and Key Verse throw them a line.
On Day 1, a Leopard named Hope spots the truth that Jesus rescues when we’re lonely
 
Beacon the toucan learns on Day 2 that worrying leads to more worrying unless we let Jesus save the day.
 
Day 3 introduces us to Rae the manta ray who teaches us that when we struggle, Jesus rescues. 
 
Then on Day 4, kids meet Guac the iguana who finds out that Jesus rescues when we do wrong. 
 
And finally, on Day 5, Moe the sloth shares (slowly) that when we’re powerless Jesus rescues! 
 
 
GOD SIGHTINGS: One of our favorite features of Kidz Blast every year is our focus on God Sightings.” Teaching your kids to keep their eyes out for clues that God is near and active in their lives.  It’s a focus we as adults need to be reminded of everyday, so it’s good to help our kids start young.  What’s extra special with Shipwrecked is the perfect visual tie-in they created to help kids remember.  The theme story has our ship stranded on an island with our sail all full of holes.  With each God Sighting, kids are encouraged to affix a Sail Sticker” patch to the sail.  As God makes himself known, our sail gets mended and soon we’ll experience his rescue!
