The goal of the Children’s Ministry department is to provide information and resources for children’s leaders, parents, and pastors.
We help coordinate the Adventurers and Pathfinders clubs, Sabbath schools, Vacation Bible schools, and children’s programs for camp meetings.
It is our hope to provide helpful and effective leadership for the children’s ministries coordinators in our conference.

VBS - "Radical Rescue: The Sanctuary and God’s Awesome Plan to Save us from Sin"

Greetings! This is a quick note to tell you about a new 5-day program kit that introduces children, ages 4 – 12, to the Sanctuary message and the plan of salvation.  The kit is entitled, “Radical Rescue: The Sanctuary and God’s Awesome Plan to Save us from Sin.”

While it is designed to operate as a five-day Vacation Bible School, it can be used in children’s church, Pathfinders, Adventurers, evangelistic meetings, week of prayer, home school, the classroom, Sabbath School, mission trips, etc.  The kit was developed by Seventh-day Adventist lay people, educators, musicians and clergy and is available in English and Spanish.  A promotional video can be seen by clicking here.

The kit includes the following components:

  • The complete program planning guide
  • CD with eleven original Sanctuary songs and Scripture (music samples available here)
  • Accompaniment CD for Sanctuary songs
  • Colorful Sanctuary model for older kids to construct
  • Fun crafts, engaging games and healthy refreshment ideas
  • Detailed marketing plan and materials for recruiting kids
  • Optional discussion questions to help kids dig deeper in the Bible
  • Room decorating ideas
  • Handy forms, permission slips, templates and more!
