Severn Baptist 2019 VBS, "Into the Wild":
The VBS program comes with skits, but we decided to replace some of them with our own. One of them incorporated a little apologetics for VBS and the kids really loved it. Feel free to imitate it if desired, or just enjoy watching the kids enjoy this five minute skit (it was recorded on an iphone and we put it on YouTube):
May many young hearts trust in Jesus! (and old hearts, too!!)
