Gotta Move! was designed to remind children that our God is faithful and will give us everything we need to walk with Him – His grace, His Word, His Son, His forgiveness, and the Holy Spirit. As children learn directly from Scripture, we pray that they will be eternally impacted by God’s truths and the gospel.
Throughout the Gotta Move! curriculum we have two primary objectives:
- To share the importance of the gospel
- To educate, encourage and empower our children to find and follow Jesus
As you well know, moving is something that children understand really well! Following Jesus means taking action. As we walk with God, He lets us know where to go through His Word and by the power of the Holy Spirit. God gives us everything we need to walk with Him, however, we need to “keep in step” (Galatians 5:25) and do our part. When we are faithful, God produces the fruit of the Spirit in our lives as well. These fruits will be emphasized throughout the Gotta Move! experience.
Since our children are bombarded with messages from the world at a constant pace, events like Vacation Bible School give us the opportunity to combat these messages – with the Sword of the Spirit! Our confidence as we implement this VBS is not that our efforts make it successful.
Instead, our confidence is in the sufficiency of scripture and the power of the gospel.
See you this summer at Green Hill Presbyterian for Gotta Move! VBS.
