Overview

On Your Mark, Get Set, Go!


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.

It's interesting how people across the globe enjoy some of the same activties, but also enjoy many different ctivities, too. These differences in cultures began after people built a tower and then God scattered them over the earth. These events are recorded in Genesis 11. When we start with the Bible, we are able to understand how different languages and cultures came about.
