Whether you’re listening on the beach, in the car, or on the couch on a rainy day, we’re so glad you’re joining us for this one-of-a-kind VBS experience for the whole family.
We’re even challenging our entire Abide community – young and old – to trail-blaze this adventure with us and join Zoey at the zoo this week for your daily meditation time!
Check out the schedule below to begin your adventure. Don’t forget, after you listen to each story, be sure to visit abide.co/kids to download the activity for the day too. From interactive games to crafts, there’s something for everyone.
Day 1: Fast and Furry
Zoey is so excited to welcome you to the zoo this morning and introduce you to the fastest land animal on earth – the cheetah! Did you know that they can run up to 70 miles per hour? Wow! Underneath the cheetah’s beautiful spotted coat, God has given him a high-performance body: an unusually powerful heart, an oversized liver, extra large and strong arteries, and huge nostrils for breathing in more air. Get excited because Zoey has a great story to tell you about one special cheetah… Click here to listen in app.
Day 2: Surrounded by Love
All herd animals know that if they want to stay safe, they have to stay together. Today, we’re going to learn from the elephants because they’re really good at this. We can learn a lot from watching a herd of them, which is why Zoey’s going to take you to see them next! Just like elephants, we need to stay together as well, so that we can help each other and keep each other safe from sin. Just like us though, sometimes the elephants can fall into trouble. If you’re ready to hear all about it, click here to listen in app.
Day 3: No Greater Love
If you thought the elephants were big, wait ’till you see the giraffes! We’re headed there with Zoey next to meet the tallest animal at the zoo. Like us, giraffes are really special. Each one has its own unique pattern of beautiful spots, unlike any other giraffe. In this story, Jasmine the Giraffe is going to tell you a scary story about a time when she was in danger, but protected her friends… Click here to listen now in app.
Day 4: The Ape Escape
No monkey business now, it’s time to go see the chimps! Chimpanzees are one of the few animals on earth who make and use tools. It’s incredible! They are quite clever creatures. They also look out for each other, just like Jesus does for us. You’re going to meet Belle, one of the chimpanzees here at the zoo. She’s a great story teller, and she has an incredible lesson to share with all of you. Click here to listen in app.
Day 5: Snoring Mr. Sloth
Our adventure is almost over, but we still have one rather fun animal to meet this morning – the sloth! Sloths are a little silly, but also incredibly strong. God even designed their bodies so they can fall out of a tree and not get hurt. Like many sloths, Sylvester is very, very lazy. He just wants to sleep all day, even though his friends want to play! Today, we’re going to wake him up and see if we can can get silly Sylvester to tell us a story. Click here to listen now in app.
