Bogard Press VBS 2014 – Cowboy / Western Theme


Cross Canyon Trail – Ridin’ Strong With Jesus

Grab your cowboy hat, dust off your boots, hop on your horse and gallop on over to the Cross Canyon Trail where we’ll be ridin’ strong with Jesus! Yeehaw! Our theme verse is Luke 9:23, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.” Buckaroos will join Tommy and Annie and the Cross Canyon Trail gang who are Ridin’ Strong with Jesus: Ridin’ Ready, Ridin’ Obedient, Ridin’ Faithful, Ridin’ Bold, Ridin’ Courageous. They will learn to follow God’s trail in life by serving, following, living for, sharing and standing with their Savior, Jesus Christ.


Hope you join us for our Cowboy VBS. For Bible lessons, see our VBS overview.

2013 VBS, The Mighty God—God Leads Moses and Me

The Mighty God VBS is based on Jeremiah 32:17, 18, “Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:…the Great, the Mighty God, the LORD of hosts.” As the students study the life of Moses, they will learn at the Nile River that God Loves them, at the Burning Bush that God Calls them, at the Passover that God Saves them, at the Red Sea that God Guides them, and in the Wilderness Desert that God Cares for them.

Bogard Press VBS Themes (Past & Present)

Vacation Bible School IconBOGARD PRESS VBS THEMES

Bogard Press VBS themes are Bible-centered. Each year, we keep the Bible at the center of our Vacation Bible School. Our VBS literature emphasizes Bible truths, stories and memory verses. We use simple verses from the KJV Bible that children love to memorize — verses that can impact their lives and eternal destinies.

VBS is a wonderful opportunity to lead children to the Savior. The Holy Scriptures are able to make them “wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 3:15). The salvation of their souls should be the most important goal in VBS.

VBS should also be fun and exciting — games, snacks, songs and crafts. All of these can point to the Bible and Jesus.


Bogard Press has published VBS curriculum for over 50 years. Here are some of our VBS themes:

2013 – The Mighty God—God Leads Moses and Me

2012 – Sunlight Express—Jesus and Me

2011 – Treasure Quest—Pursuing the Riches of Christ

2010 – Soul Survivors on Danger Island

2009 – Passport to the Promise Land—Following the Steps of Jesus

2008 – Good News Games—Winning with God’s Team

2007 – Wild West Witness—Ridin’ in the Shadow of the Cross

2006 – Boomerang Bonanza—Sharing the Words of Life

2005 – Xtreme Adventure—Equipping for Life
