It's Time to Level Up VBS!

Spin the spinner, beat the clock, skip ahead, level up, and play to win! You'll need to bring your A-game for this VBS. Twists & Turns is a fantastical celebration of games of all kinds. From classic tabletop games to video games and more, kids will play their way through VBS while learning that Jesus guides them through all the twists and turns of their lives. They'll find that even when they mess up it's never "game over."

How it Works for Traditional VBS

A guide to each day at Twists & Turns VBS

Begin each day with large group worship rally

This is the place where kids can sing VBS songs, view daily videos, see live skits, and say the motto and theme verse, among other things that set the direction for the day.

Next Stop: Bible Study Game Room!

Group kids by grade or keep multiple ages together with multi-age options. Here, kids will experience the daily Bible story and participate in small group activities that reinforce daily points.

Twists & Turns Rotation Sites!

Kids rotate through sites where each activity relates back to the daily point and biblical content.

  • Wild Card Crafts: Create keepsakes that reinforce Bible learning, all themed around different kinds of card games!
