The Incredible Race features fun clues to find, challenges to overcome, and a global scavenger hunt to attempt as kids race to a different continent each day and celebrate the amazing variety of cultures found throughout the world.
The Incredible Race is also about another race that began in the garden of Eden and continues to this day, made up of all people from all time: the human race. We’ll explore the events from the very beginning that have led to the beautiful variety of skin shades and languages found around the world. We’ll find out that we really are all part of the same family and in need of the same Savior. We’ll discover that regardless of skin shade or language, God loves people from every tribe and every nation. Jesus is truly the savior of the world!
Throughout the week, kids will learn easy apologetics to equip them to stand strong in their faith. The Incredible Race is packed with rich teaching, a mission moment, science experiments, crafts, snacks, games, music, and most importantly, the soul-saving gospel message. Ready, set, go!

Prepare yourself for a little barnyard mayhem as you take a look at Farm Fresh FAITH through the eyes of our farmyard friends: Faithful the horse, Blessed the chicken, Patience the pig, Hopeful the sheep and Promise the cow. The theme that ties our barnyard menagerie together is Farm Fresh FAITH. It uses the life of Joseph as an example for students to follow. Joseph’s life was full of ups and downs, highs and lows, good and bad; yet, Joseph continued to trust in God through it all. Though at times it might seem to us that God abandoned Joseph, in the end we clearly see God was always faithful, and He is worthy of our trust.
Theme verse: “Thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.” Psalm 36:5
