Let’s Start The Party: Unveiling VBS 2024

Find out more about the theme, the importance of VBS, and how this complete kit will help you create the Very Best Summer next year.

It’s Time to Celebrate

So, paint some signs, decorate the walls, hang the lights, turn up the music, invite some friends, and throw open the doors.

 We don’t think it’s just ok to have fun, we think it should be a priority.


Because people who follow Jesus have a lot to celebrate.

Jesus gives us some pretty good reasons to party. Friendship, belonging, forgiveness, abundant life, and purpose. That’s why we believe the Gospel of Jesus is the good news.

Since there seems to be a lot of bad news going around today, we have an incredible opportunity to remind this generation why Jesus is good news. We can create an environment where faith can be exciting, adventurous, fun, interesting, challenging, and engaging.

So…let’s Start the Party.

This year, Orange VBS brings the party to your church for an experience that engages every kid, and every family with the good news of the Gospel. For every vacation bible school or summer experience (we like to say Very Best Summer), you’ll find a complete kit to equip you with innovative tools to create a one-of-a-kind experience for your community.
