The Higher Things® Bread of Life 2016 Vacation Bible School (VBS) focuses on the Sacrament of the Altar in which Jesus gives us His true body and blood for the forgiveness of sins. Lining up Bible stories that reinforce the catechism, the "Bread of Life" VBS serves as a great introduction to this special gift of Jesus in a way that is appropriate even for younger children. The "Bread of Life" VBS is packed with features including...
- Opening and Closing Worship using Daily Orders of Prayer adapted from those found in Lutheran Service Book.
- Bible Breakaways that teach and reinforce the day's bible story in a fun and humorous way.
- Catechism Study where participants will attend various restaurants and dinner parties as they learn about what gifts Jesus gives in the Sacrament of the Altar.
- Snacks, Games, and Crafts that all reinforce the theme of the day with opportunities for discussing "What Does This Mean?"
