Concrete & Cranes 2020

Concrete & Cranes – We’re Building Our Faith


Put on your hard hat and goggles! In the summer of 2020, enter a construction site where the old is taken down and the new is built up.  Your VBS kids will pour concrete and lift up beams as they build up their faith in Jesus. Take your construction connoisseurs  on a 5-day build site to learn about our one Cornerstone, & he who “began a good work and will be faithful to carry it on to completion!


Every year, we dig into all the VBS curricula, programs, and themes to give you everything you need to know to choose the perfect VBS for your church.

LifeWay is taking your VBS up into the sky—and, no, we’re not talking about airplanes. Rise above the skyline in a construction lift and enjoy the unique and magnificent buildings, each one reliant on its foundation for its strength. We are a lot like these buildings, in need of Jesus, our solid rock.


Our salvation is built on Jesus, but so is our whole life. Our joy, our security, our worth, our identity and so much more can be found in Him, and that’s what your VBS kids will learn at LifeWay’s 2020 VBS. Take it from them: “We’re all a work in progress…but just wait ’til you see what God will do!”


LifeWay’s 2020 theme verse is Philippians 1:6 and motto is “Jesus! Our Strong Foundation!” And that he is. At Concrete & Cranes, study 5 stories from the life of Jesus that will help your engineers see Jesus’s love and connect the dots of the Gospel.




Becoming Wise Builders with LifeWay

On Day 1, watch Jesus choose Matthew out of a sinful life and learn the Foundation of Love from Matthew 9. The Foundation of Forgiveness is next, coming out of Paul’s salvation confession in  Acts 26. Then, Day 3 zooms in to Jesus’s prayer in Gethsemane, and will show your builders were we find our Worth, in Christ alone!


Day 4 is all about promises; Matthew 28 proves that we can trust in what Jesus says, as the disciples did. Finally, Day 5 is the Foundation of Life from Matthew 7:24-29. This day will send your VBS kids home, certain that a house build on the Solid Rock is a house that will live forever!


Getting to Work

There is so much to see and do at this important worksite! Spring into the day at High Steel Worship Rally, then take a close look at Blueprint Bible Study. Got an energetic group? No worries! Rev up for Wrecking Ball Rec before fueling up at Food Truck Snacks.


Get to work with your hands at Bulldozer Crafts, then jam some praise at Jackhammer Music. But we’re not finished yet! Go on an Excavator Mission and discover wonderful things about our Cornerstone.
