This is no VBS-in-a-box! You will join Christian on his journey from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City, learning all the lessons of the journey. This is an experiential VBS, hence there is not much sitting and cutting and pasting. There's lots of physical activity, drama, role playing and fun, as well as worship, reflection and music. The experience is based on Helen Taylor's excellent adaptation of the book for children, Little Pilgrim's Progress, and is made up of lesson plans based on the chapters in the book and the major learning experiences Little Christian encounters.Users usually rate it as the best, or among the best VBS experiences they have ever had.
- Experiential, with numerous learning modalities, extremely well organized.
- Spiritually profound and genuinely fun.
- An excellent evangelical outreach.
- Can be used as a VBS, Sunday school unit, or an intergenerational family parish weekend.
- Cost: The complete lesson/experience plans, copy of Little Pilgrim's Progress and permission to copy lesson materials and journals is $55.00.
