The Apologetic VBS
How is Answers VBS, the vacation bible school program from Answers in Genesis different? Two words: Real life. In this day and age, it’s vital that we teach our children the Bible is more than just a dusty book of stories. We need to show them God’s Word connects to every area of life and is just as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago, so they will know its amazing message of salvation is true!
Recent surveys show that nearly 70% of Christian kids grow up and walk away from the church. One of the main reasons is because they have not been taught basic apologetics. Answers VBS programs are designed to answer the key questions that cause so many young people to walk away from the Lord.
