VBS Curriculum from LOM Now Available
Lutheran Outdoor Ministries (LOM) produces the curriculum each year that is used in camp and retreat settings and for Vacation Bible Schools and day camps. LOM has released its 2019 curriculum entitled Transformed Community: God's Agent of C.H.A.N.G.E.
This curriculum conjures up images of a mighty band of superheroes with secret missions. When we take on the mission of being God’s agent of change in the world, we must be ready to be transformed—individually and together—and to discover that our not-so-secret identities will probably not conform to the world’s expectations. This is not always an easy thing to say yes to, but when the mission is attempted together and in community, we discover that we are aligned with God’s will, powered by God’s spirit, and that there is purpose and joy in being Christ’s life-giving and love-giving presence in the world as God’s hands and feet.
Daily themes include: Generosity Transforms Community (Acts 2:41-47, the early Christian community); Compassion Transforms Community (Luke 14:7-14, the parable of the wedding banquet); Inclusion Transforms Community (Luke 10:25-37, the parable of the good Samaritan); Justice Transforms Community (Matthew 20:1-16, the parable of the laborers in the vineyard); and Forgiveness Transforms Community (Mark 2:1-12, Jesus heals the paralyzed man).
The curriculum is also available in small bundles designed for Youth Ministry and VBS settings. The full curriculum package includes Bible study sessions for Elementary, Youth, and Adult, as well as games, crafts, environmental activities, and team-building activities.
Transformed Community: God's Agent of C.H.A.N.G.E. is available for purchase and download on the LOM website at www.lomnetwork.org. Lutheran Outdoor Ministries is an association of outdoor ministry organizations dedicated to encouraging, equipping, educating, and empowering bold and faithful outdoor ministry leaders for service in the Church and in the world.
