  HOW does this curriculum work?  
  Children move among 5 stations: Bible Story, Mission, Crafts, Music, and Recreation (preschoolers, however, have a slightly different schedule)  
  Station leaders teach the same lesson each day to multiple groups  
  Group guides stay with the same group of children for the entire VBS to build relationships  
  Children begin and end each day's time together in assembly  
  Music CD may be reproduced so that each child has a copy  
  WHY is this curriculum a good choice?  
  It is flexible and user-friendly for various sizes of congregations  
  It is a thoughtful curriculum, encouraging children to use their imaginations and to reflect upon the Bible stories and the mission activities  
  It is portable - curriculum can be used from year to year in a variety of settings - VBS, Sunday School, retreats, Wednesday night programs  
  For churches not involved in the Living Waters for the World ministry, the program provides an opportunity to become informed and support our clean water efforts in a variety of ways  

For churches involved in the Living Waters ministry, the children (and the congregation, by extension) are involved in the same mission project as their mission team
