Free Stuff Fridays (PROOF Pirates Edition)

This week’s Free Stuff Fridays is sponsored by New Growth Press. They are giving away an interesting new product this week: Everything you need to get started with a VBS program called PROOF Pirates (which was created at Sojourn Community Church in Louisville, KY). There will be 5 winners this week and each of them will receive the PROOF Pirates VBS Starter Kit.

PROOF PiratesChore charts. Report cards. Standardized tests. Athletic banquets. Kids are inundated with messages about their performance. Because performance—work and reward—is one of the basic structures of our lives, kids often grow up thinking, “I am what I am because of what I do … or because of what I’ve failed to do.” How different this message sounds from the biblical message of redemption by grace!

PROOF Pirates introduces kids to God’s amazing grace through a five-day, pirate-themed curriculum for use in Bible clubs and Vacation Bible School. It explains the doctrines of grace using the popular PROOF acronym (God’s grace is Planned, Resurrecting, Outrageous, Overcoming, and Forever) with the book of Ephesians so kids know that it is not their performance that makes them right with God. Whether using a treasure map to teach about God’s sovereign plan or a skeleton to explain how God makes dead people walk, PROOF Pirates helps kids remember the one message we never want them to forget: God’s grace. It features original music, crafts, skits, extensive leader’s notes, and everything else you need to run a successful VBS for children in preschool through fifth grade.

The Starter Kit retails for $139 and includes:

  • 1 complete curriculum DVD—including director’s guide, worship and drama leader’s guide, printables, and curriculum for preschool through 5th grade use
  • 1 PROOF Pirates hardcover family devotional
  • 1 PROOF Pirates song CD from Sojourn Music
  • 1 silicone wristband (available for purchase in 10 packs)
  • 1 iron-on T-shirt transfer (available for purchase in 10 packs)
