Now that summer is nearly here, lots of churches are thinking about their Vacation Bible School programs. As in years past, UMI (Urban Ministries, Inc.) has an exciting new theme for 2012: Fishin’ on a Mission with Jesus! With a wealth of materials, multimedia, activities, crafts, and lesson plans for all ages, Fishin’ on a Mission with Jesus uses lessons from the Bible to lead students to Jesus and teach them how to share His message with others.
The theme verse for Fishin’ on a Mission with Jesus is: “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men” (Matthew 4:19, KJV). In lessons based on the evangelistic journeys of the Apostle Paul, students from preschool to adult will discover biblical ways to share their faith and reel in a big catch of spiritual fish.
Sharing your faith, according to Scripture, involves not just preaching the Gospel but living for Jesus, praying, studying the truth, and having faith in Jesus yourself. Fishin’ on a Mission with Jesus teaches you how to do all these things and more, with action-packed, Bible-based lessons.
This video provides an overview of the Fishin’ on a Mission with Jesus program and shows why sharing your faith is so exciting:
