To Mars and Beyond Super Starter Kit PLUS Digital - Cokesbury VBS 2019
This is the "To Mars and Beyond Super Starter Kit PLUS Digital". It has everything you need to help your kids explore where God's power can take them!
One small step for your kids...one giant leap for God's Kingdom!
Blast off with the first VBS to land on the moon! Cokesbury's To Mars and Beyond will help kids discover the wonders of God's universe. They'll become Voyagers on a journey through space, exploring where God's power can take them. Beginning in your Assembly area-an outpost on Mars-they'll lift off to distant planets on special missions to collect power sources. Along the way, they'll learn how God walked with heroes of the Bible, and that God is always with them, too. Add to the adventure with out-of-this-world fun, learning, and timeless Bible stories that inspire kids to give glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine! *Please note: the Elementary Classroom Leader is not included in the Starter Kit

Ratings & Reviews
Love this kit! This is my first time using Cokesbury VBS and although it is different, there is plenty of information and the USB is wonderful!
Blasting Off and totally EXCITED about this program!
We are thrilled to be using To Mars and Beyond this year for our VBS! We just introduced it to our Volunteers and there is GREAT excitement among them. I love the music, EP3-20, The Vector Verse and Power Launchers, the Bible Stories are perfect to support the theme and focus of each night. Also, we so appreciate the digital technology that goes with the program and the decorating ideas and scenes. Overall, WE CAN'T WAIT to Blast Off with God!
To Mars and Beyond was a Hit!
We selected this program because it had a component for teens and adults. We were not disappointed. To Mars and Beyond was truly amazing! The lessons were easy to teach and the children enjoyed each story. They related well to the space theme and enjoyed the lessons, crafts music and movements.
To Mars and Beyond digital supplies
The digital kit helped us in that we could down load and share materials with the various volunteers and not have to worry about discs etc. Well worth the money.
