Puzzling Pyramids - CMD 2023 VBS Theme

Join archeologist and adventurer Colorado Smith as he seeks to unravel the mystery of the Puzzling Pyramids with the aid of some very helpful Egyptian animals he meets along the way.

This ancient Egypt-themed VBS will have kids learning about the early life of Moses, how God used him to help the Israelites escape their Egyptian slavery, and ultimately how we can escape from our slavery to sin.
