"Kindom Crafters" VBS curriculum named Top Pick for 2024 by Building Faith

Kindom Crafters: Imagine, Build, Discover by Chalice Press was named a Top Pick for 2024 by Building Faith, one of the most respected Vacation Bible School reviewers in the country!

Kindom Crafters cover

“[Kindom Crafters] offers a vision of God’s kindom that actively makes room for all people of all races, genders, sexual orientations, economic statuses, and disabled and non-disabled identities,” the review states, adding it’s a good option for a director on a budget.

Building Faith expressed confidence in both the theological foundations, and fun factor of Kindom Crafters. “This curriculum’s attention to justice sets it apart from many others. The Minecraft theme is cool and will be exciting to many children. Each part of the day ties into the day’s theme, including the snacks. On the first day, for example, which focuses on Abraham’s and Sarah’s hospitality, children prepare a snack for the person in line behind them, rather than for themselves.”

Kindom Crafters includes five days of learning, playing, creating, and celebrating. Resources for small groups, crafts, games and snacks are provided for each day, along with an opening and closing time. Scripts for storytellers and directions for leaders make Kindom Crafters a great tool for equipping directors, staff, and volunteers. Kindom Crafters also features an optional worship section that can be used at your event, on Sunday mornings, or sent home with families to experience at home.

Created in partnership with Disciples Home Missions, Kindom Crafters is the first Vacation Bible School product from Chalice Press. The curriculum was the basis for children’s programming at the 2023 General Assembly in Louisville, Kentucky.

The primary writer for Kindom Crafters is Rev. Lee Yates. His work has been featured by Vibrant Faith Ministry, and the United Methodist Publishing House, among others. He is the Managing Editor for InsideOut Camp Curriculum, a partnership of Chalice Press and six mainline denominations.

If your congregation is looking for an inexpensive VBS curriculum—just $74.99, with no shipping—that is easily adaptable and has plenty of room for your own imagination to shine through, Kindom Crafters is a perfect match.
