THEOLOGY OF RENEW

God’s creation is a gift we all share. We all live in it together and depend on it together. Caring for it—together—is both a good work and collective act of faith. The Bible is filled with stories and teachings that reveal our dependence on God through the bounty of the earth. In fact, you could hardly tell the story of the chosen people or hear one of Jesus’ parables without the water, trees, wilderness, animals, and weather that form their backdrop. ReNew weaves together this rich natural imagery with engaging activities kids love, resulting in a deeper, more memorable experience of the Word.

ReNew VBS focuses on one story, Jesus’ Parable of the Sower, so kids can explore this parable in-depth, rather than trying to learn multiple non-consecutive stories over a short period of time. Digging into the story from the perspectives of Self, Community, and World also allows kids to relate to the text and build a relationship with the Bible.

Each day at ReNew, kids hear the entire Bible story, but then focus on one section of it to discover what the passage means for them and how it relates to caring for God’s creation.

Finally, the activities in ReNew are centered in stewardship. Kids learn, create, and do things that change their world. Their faith is put into action and impacts the wider community.

COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS

Throughout VBS, the children will have speakers from the community such as the Monroe County Ecopark, Wild Wings, and others to help children learn how their stewardship can be applied in their home, their community, and across the world.
