Brief Description

Under Construction: A Habitat for Humanity Vacation Bible School is a Christian education resource that uses a construction metaphor to help children learn about community. To teach children the value of Christian service, Under Construction also introduces them to the ministry of Habitat for Humanity International. By combining solid Biblical teaching with practical Christian service, the children and the adults who are leading them engage a Christian learning experience like no other!

“Community Building: Under Construction VBS Teaching Guide”

The Church, Our Congregation, the Family of God – these are all ways of describing the community of faith. One of the primary themes found in Under Construction is that of Christian community. Every gathering of believers has its own way of being community together. Children fulfill a significant role within a healthy and forward-looking community.

In Acts 2:44-47 we find an early description of the community of faith. The functions of community that are found in this passage give us an exciting picture of the church’s life. Under Construction uses the description found in Acts to draw together the Bible Story Themes presented daily to the children.

Day One: The Community Shares – Exodus 35:20-29
Day Two: The Community Cares – Luke 5:17-26
Day Three: The Community Learns – Acts 8:26-40
Day Four: The Community at Worship – Joshua 24
Day Five: The Community Celebrates – Nehemiah 12:27-43

Community Building is a resource that includes ten sessions, five for use with adults and five for use with youth. For each session you will find:
• Construction Briefs
• Youth Teaching Procedures
• Adult Teaching Procedures
