Vacation Bible School

ON YOUR MARK, GET SET, GO!

It’s a race unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.

A race filled with fun clues to find, loaded with interesting challenges to attempt, and a global scavenger hunt like you’ve never seen.

At the same time, it’s about another race. A race that began at the Garden of Eden and continues until this day, made up of all people from all time.

What race? The human race.

As we move around the world in The Incredible Race from Answers VBS, we’ll make pit stops before, during, and after the Tower of Babel. Kids will discover how this event from the Bible matters today.

FROM THE MINUTE YOUR KIDS ARRIVE AT THE INCREDIBLE RACE, THEY’LL FIND FUN WAITING TO HAPPEN!
