Welcome to the world of Mindcraft, where you and your students will learn to set your minds on Christ in a fun and engaging atmosphere! You’ll learn to dig out what doesn’t belong in your lives and build up good things that will help you know Jesus better and live for Him every day. As you DIG and BUILD, you are practicing spiritual disciplines, which are ways of living that will help you grow closer to Jesus. Through these spiritual disciplines, you learn to be still, be simple, be worshipful and be willing to connect to God and His people. The key verse for Mindcraft VBS is Colossians 3:2, “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Spiritual disciplines will help you to set your minds on Christ, and you will learn how to do so in the amazing, fun world of Mindcraft!
Both kids and adults love the popular video game which focuses on digging and building. Learning about spiritual disciplines has never been SO FUN! Everyone will remember what it means to dig and build for Jesus after spending a week in MINDCRAFT!

Why a Four Day VBS? We believe a four day VBS is a fabulous concept, and here’s why: YOU get to decide what to do with the fifth day! Some churches have a Tuesday through Friday VBS and use the Monday beforehand to decorate and prepare. Other churches have a Monday through Thursday VBS and use Friday as a party day! Invite the whole neighborhood, have a picnic, rent out a local park, whatever. Just make it fun and celebrate what everyone learned all week long. We think another great idea is to use the fifth day as a church-wide service day. Your community is brimming with opportunities. We are big fans of a four day VBS.
Copyright disclaimer: This VBS is a parody of a video game series where users are allowed to dig and build to create their own worlds. Through this parody, we want to communicate the idea that in this world we need to Set our Minds on Jesus by building up spiritual disciplines. The characters in the skits are parodies, and while some artwork and materials might seem familiar (to help create the parody), they are all original works.
Thanks for being awesome!
