Newly available at eChurchDepot, Cokesbury’s Workshop of Wonders (WOW) VBS is a place where kids will learn how to imagine and build with God. WOW VBS will teach kids how God transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary through interactive Bible storytelling, crafts, science experiments, energetic music, and more.
The Scripture theme is Psalm 77:14a, CEB: “You are the God who works wonders.” On each of the five days of Workshop of Wonders VBS, kids will meet people from the Bible who used what they had to make something amazing with God. Kids learn to follow God’s blueprint for their lives in the interactive story center where they hear about:
The Story of Esther (Book of Esther) – Imagine with God!
Rebuilding the Lord’s House (Ezra 3:8-13) – Build with God!
The Parable of the Mustard Seed (Matthew 13:1-2; 31-32) – Grow with God!
Feeding the 5,000 (John 6:1-13) – Work with God!
Walking with Emmaus (Luke 24:13-32) – Walk with God!
What is Unique About Workshop of Wonders?
Directors will be able to customize WOW VBS 2014 to adapt to their church’s needs, whether for size or budget. Directors can choose from three ways to set up their VBS:
1. Activity Centers in which kids move around to different stations.
2. Age-Level Classrooms set up so that kids stay in one classroom with one teacher for most of the activities. The Bible story, craft, games and snacks are all age-appropriate.
3. Combination: Create your own workshop to fit your needs. Combine classroom style and activity centers to create a program that fits your needs perfectly.

Very cool science experiments reveal God’s wonders: Invisible Ink Messages & Diet Cola and Mentos Geyser, Building a Pulley & Balancing Coins, Make a Lava Lamp & Construct a Terrarium, Lunch Bag Pop & Density Rainbow, and Color Journey & Wonder Slime.

Puppets Rivet the Ant and Sandy Paper come to life to talk about the daily themes, and Dr. WOW, the great inventor, and his assistant Sam, try to make the ordinary into something extraordinary.
It has a flexible missions emphasis.
WOW includes optional “hands-on” mission projects for each of the 5 sessions, as well as information on partnering with a local or national missions organization.
It has an app!
