Rocky Railway — All Aboard!

July 13-17, 2020 · 9:00am Daily

Jump to:

At Rocky Railway, kids explore Jesus’ power in them and how we can trust in Jesus—and not our own strength—to pull us through life’s challenges. COVID-19 has derailed countless plans, routines, and expectations, but we can still have some VBS fun as we journey through God’s Word together! Join your friends from WholeLife Kids online as we learn that Jesus gives us the power to do hard things!

Join us at 9:00AM every morning for a new video! We encourage you to read through the Parent Guide and schedule below to prepare for each day of your VBS adventure. We hope this is a week of fun and learning for you and your kids!

Don’t forget the Zoom VBS Party at 10:45AM! Check your email for details.
Made in partnership with Mosaic Church

Daily Schedule & Teachings

Sing and Play Express

Each day, kids sing the Rocky Railway theme song, “Your Power Will Pull Us Through,” which connects with the daily Bible Points. In addition to fun praise songs, kids sing at least one song each day that specifically ties to that day’s Bible Point.

Imagination Station

Kids dive into exciting experiments that connect to the day’s Bible story and Point. (All materials included in VBS pack.)

Loco Motion Games

Kids play “Minute To Win It” style games using items from around your home to connect with the daily Bible Point.

Bible Adventures

Kids experience the daily Bible story in a hands-on way. Materials are optional, but most likely will be found around your home.

Rocky Wrap Up

Kids sing the Sing & Play Express songs they’ve learned that day. The Rocky Wrap-Up Leader uses drama experiences and engaging object lessons to help kids apply what they’ve learned throughout the day.
