Summer Outreach for Your Church or Neighborhood

Summer Outreach for Your Church or Neighborhood

Whether you're considering a small-scale or large-scale outreach this summer, start with a God-centered, gospel-grounded curriculum.

Truth78's curriculum is ideal for large, church-based Vacation Bible School and smaller Backyard Bible Clubs in your home or neighborhood. Both approaches yield big benefits for leaders and participants.

Vacation Bible School

The VBS format offers a wide-reaching, one-location approach hosted in your church facilities. Truth78's curriculum inspires teaching that instructs the mind, engages the heart, and influences the will.

"I chose Truth78 curriculum because it’s Bible-rich and God-centered, provides a clear and thoughtful gospel presentation, and includes lessons that are engaging but rightfully weighty—not focused on feel good fluff. The curriculum integrates well with what we teach during the week, can be scaled up or down for our age range, and includes well-designed daily lessons with many options for add-on games, activities, and more." —Amy, Clifton Baptist Church, KY

Backyard Bible Club

The ​BYBC format offers a simple, low-cost, neighborhood-based, highly-relational approach that provides the opportunity for ongoing interaction with parents and children.

"We thought having the club in our own backyard gave it a more personal approach and atmosphere. It gave opportunities for our neighbors to hear gospel truths while walking by our house. The outdoor setting can also be helpful for people who are not accustomed to, or comfortable going to, a church." —Keith and Lonna, Eagan, MN
