Remember that the Lord is great and awesome! – Nehemiah 4:14b

Glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine by his power at work within us! – Ephesians 3:20

One small step for your kids...one giant leap for God's Kingdom!

Blast off with the first VBS to land on the moon! Cokesbury's To Mars and Beyond will help kids discover the wonders of God's universe. They'll become Voyagers on a journey through space, exploring where God's power can take them. Beginning in your Assembly area-an outpost on Mars-they'll lift off to distant planets on special missions to collect power sources. Along the way, they'll learn how God walked with heroes of the Bible, and that God is always with them, too. Add to the adventure with out-of-this-world fun, learning, and timeless Bible stories that inspire kids to give glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine!
