Get On Board: Cruising with God’s Family ~ Ephesians 1:5 (NRSV)
Theme Verse: “God destined us for adoption as his children through Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of his will.” (Ephesians 1:5, NRSV)
Motto: We are Family!
Before our mothers and fathers knew our name, God knew us and loved us. God predestined us to be His sons and daughters, thus becoming His family through Jesus Christ. In this year’s VBS, we will cruise with the Brown family and learn what it means that we have been adopted into God’s family, learning family values and ways of being as sons and daughters. Being children of God is who we are; it is our identity. It pleases God to have each of us as His child. No matter what we have done or will do wrong, God has not changed His mind about any of us—for in love God chose each of us and we are His most prized creation. So, get on board and let’s enjoy this summer’s cruise as God’s adopted family!
