Theme & Lessons

Comb the beach of a deserted island with a host of colorful characters, including Floyd, a wise flamingo; Stella, a sassy starfish; Topher, a tentative turtle; Marvin, a dependable monkey; and Cameron, a shy, ever-color-changing chameleon. Students will also meet Archibald J. Worthington, III, better known on the island as Archie, a shipwrecked businessman who’s lost more than just his possessions and needs to find his way. Like Archie, students will discover that you always have a Rock and a Refuge when you feel lost and will learn that you’re never really marooned all by yourself.

The Marooned Crafts will save you time and money by furnishing you with most of the materials needed to complete each craft. You will only need to supply common household items such as glue or tape. Each craft pack contains the materials to equip twelve students with one craft each. All the crafts relate to the theme and are designed to fill each craft session with a fun activity. Because some crafts contain small pieces and are not suitable for preschoolers, additional crafts are available for these young students.

Don’t forget all the extras that make VBS so special. Advertising posters and invitation cards can spread the word that VBS is coming. Thank-you cards aid in the follow-up process. A multi-media CD, which can also be played as an audio CD, is compatible with Mac and PC platforms. Containing art files, reproducible PDF files with certificates, a door hanger template, name badges, song lyrics, and much more, the CD is a great resource for any VBS program. Our VBS theme song, “Lead Me in Your Truth” as well as other titles (in a cappella), will help get everyone excited to meet the challenge to see, know, trust, obey, and believe.
