Discovering God’s Way of Peace
MennoMedia 2018 Bible school curriculum ready for orders
HARRISONBURG, Va.—God’s way of peace will come alive as children discover how to be peacemakers in Peace Lab, the 2018 vacation Bible school series from MennoMedia. From learning how to resolve conflicts to helping others, children will find out that peace begins with them.
“We’re pleased to offer this curriculum, knowing that peace is important throughout the biblical story. Plus, it’s very relevant to children as they encounter situations where peace can be a practical solution,” said Mary Ann Weber, project director.
The five-day curriculum includes stories and themes rooted in the Bible, and helps concepts about active peacemaking come to life in age-appropriate ways. Written by a team of writers in Pennsylvania, the Bible stories become real through worship, music, dramas, crafts, games, and other activities.
Children’s booklets, Lab Book and My Book of Stories, include stories and activities to help children learn about peace and peacemakers. Leaders’ guides and a resource CD aid teachers as they lead VBS for children from ages 4 through grade 5. Adaptations for grades 6–8 are offered on the resource CD.
Peace Lab may be ordered in an all-in-one starter kit that includes everything needed for planning and preparing an effective VBS program. All items are also sold separately. More information is at www.MennoMedia.org/vbs.
