Synopsis: Is there just one God? Who is God? What is God like? Does God love me? Can I know God? Our kids grapple with questions like these every day. At Mystery Island, we’ll uncover the truth about our Creator God! There’s a sea of confusion about who God is and what he’s like, so we’ll track down the one true God as we learn how amazing he is through the pages of the Bible.

North Castle is hidden in a frozen land. The King's valiant Knights are on a quest in search of the King's Armor. But the armor isn't what they think it is.
Cokesbury's 2020 VBS, Knights of North Castle: Quest for the King's Armor, invites children to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power! Kids will take on the role of brave Knights and begin their quest each session by opening the King's Book. They'll explore Old and New Testament stories and discover different pieces of protective armor-the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Justice, the Shoes of Peace, the Shield of Faith, and the Helmet of Salvation- at work in the lives of familiar Bible characters, and explore how that armor works in their own lives as they follow and serve God.
Help kids take up the gauntlet and accept the challenge to "armor up" and be strong by remaining with God and sharing God's love to the world!
