Agency D3: Takin' It Home

wooley1 2013I am totally pumped to be introducing the newest resource to the LifeWay's VBS family - Takin' It Home CD.

Takin' It Home extends the VBS experience and fun to the ride home! Kids, parents, and everyone in the car gets involved in not only reviewing the activities of the day but talking to and sharing with each other. Plus as the week progresses parents are introduced to how they too can have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

We believe this resource is so important and transformational that we are giving it to you for free! Yep, you read it correctly. FREE!

One copy of Takin' It Home will be in the Jump Start Kit being released in October (more about this in the next post) as well as online for free download. We want you to take this free resource and make as many copies as you want, or at least one copy for family. Distribute Takin' It Home as kids are leaving the first day and encourage them and their parents to listen to the daily segments on their way home.

For kids, Takin' It Home not only serves as a review of the day, but takes them deeper into the Bible study through personal application and family discussion. For parents, Takin' It Home not only gives them an inside view of what their kids experienced at VBS, but makes the study personal for them as well. Not only will parents learn about the daily Bible content of VBS, they will be introduced to the Gospel and encouraged to begin their relationship with Jesus Christ.

Takin' It Home is designed to start conversations, and the conversation begins with what the kids learned during a session of VBS.

We actually have four churches piloting Takin' It Home with Colossal Coaster World, and will be telling you more about this life-changing resource soon.

By the way, for churches that might not have the ability to reproduce the CD, they will be available in five packs for a minimal price. Also, for churches wishing to have the CD customized we can do that too. Watch for more information when the VBS 2014 catalog is shipped your way in October.

    I LOVE this idea!!!! I can't wait to see what it's like and to hear feed back from the churches who used it for Colossal World this summer!!!

    Mary, this idea has great potential for churches that are being very intentional about building bridges to the spiritual orphans of their communities. The message to parents is extremely strong and evangelistic. The idea came from Jeffrey Reed who is the new director of LifeWay Kids. He has only been on the job for two months and we are excited about what he is bringing to the table.

    I love this! I am sure that it will be an excellent tool for reaching families for Christ. I am excited about this!

      One of the challenges we hear most from churches is a need to help them connect with the entire family. This is going to be a great step in that direction. Of course just handing a parent a CD is not going to be the key to success. VBS leaders must be intentional in helping kids and parents want to spend the car ride home listening and responding to the game and questions. You are going to like it!

    This is an awesome idea!!! What a great new way to connect with those "spiritual orphan" families!! We just had one of our best VBS weeks in a long time and I personally had a new out-look and perspective on the joy of having "spiritual orphans" attend and the ability to share Jesus with them and their families that attended on Family Night. Thank you for the terrific training in Ft. Worth and I look forward to attending again in January. I appreciate everything ya'll do to help help us prepare and train our workers and the biblically strong material that you provide. This year's content was awesome and we've heard tremendous positive feedback, not only from our own Bible Study teachers and Pastor but from others in our Baptist Association.

    Love this idea! Our families already love the music CDs and listen to them over and over. Hoping already that this will be an easy extension to what they are already doing. Looking forward to using this as a tangible way pass the gospel through the community! Thanks as always!

    This summer I have been using the backyard Bible club curriculum at a campground. This would be a great tool for me. I did buy some of the CD to give to the children.
