NEW THIS SUMMER: Neighborhood VBS Kits!

Jesus taught us the greatest commandment is to love God and love our neighbor. This summer we are equipping you to do just this with our FOCUS VBS Neighborhood Edition!

This year instead of asking you to come to us, we are asking you to take the fun to your neighborhood! With FOCUS VBS kids dive deeper into their faith by putting the FOCUS on Loving God. Preschoolers through preteens will have a blast as they discover how to trust in what they CAN’T see because of what they CAN see.

Now what about the Love your neighbor part? This year we are putting together VBS kits with everything you need to gather anywhere from 5-15 kids together in your backyards, front yards, garages, cul-de-sacs and porches – wherever you want –  to experience all the fun VBS has to offer.

With each kit you will receive access to online praise music and bible stories presented in an engaging and relevant way.  In addition, you will receive all the supplies you need for fun crafts, challenging STEM activities and exciting games to reinforce biblical truths kids are learning.

We have put in fun surprise swag for each kid as well as a Host Guide outlining everything you need to know (including fun snack ideas) to make this VBS experience the  best for you and your neighborhood. With each kit registration you will also receive access to live and online training videos from the Next Gen staff to answer any question you may have. It has never been easier to bring faith and fun together in the neighborhood.

In addition to hosting a gathering we have other ways you can VOLUNTEER TO HELP US:

  • Prayer Partner – You will be assigned a specific neighborhood gathering/family/kids to pray for!
  • Kit Assembly – Join us a the church in late June (following social distancing recommendations) to assemble all of our VBS Neighborhood Kits!
  • Craft supply prep work –We provide supplies you help prep in your home! NOTE: one prep item requires you to have a drill.
  • Volunteer to be assigned to a neighborhood gathering and help the host!

You can see more details about volunteer opportunities and register for your free VBS neighborhood Kit online at

Kits will be available for pick up starting June 28th and we invite you to host your Neighborhood VBS anytime in July! We can’t wait to see how much fun you have this summer Loving God and Loving your Neighbor.
