Parables VBS Curriculum

A VBS That's Inexpensive, Gospel-Saturated, & Supports Adoption

With the Parables VBS curriculum from Clement Arts, get ready to have a lot of fun sharing the good news of Jesus with kids in your church and community! In addition, your purchase of these materials will be used to support the cause of orphan care through Clement Arts.

The Gospel

We believe the gospel should be the standard “curriculum” for every VBS. If the gospel isn’t present, if our children aren’t introduced to the Jesus we find in the Bible, we aren’t truly stewarding the young hearts God has given to us. Jesus died to save sinners. There’s no more important lesson than that, and none more practical — the gospel applies to every circumstance our children face! That’s why each day at Parables VBS your children are presented with the gospel. There’s no buildup to a gospel presentation on day four or day five. Rather, each day your students will be presented with the life changing news of what Jesus did on the cross to rescue sinners!


We also believe that gospel ministry will never dead-end on ourselves but impact lives in our local congregations, the wider community, and even across the globe. For this reason, proceeds generated by this curriculum go to local Christian families caring for orphans through adoption. You won’t find this feature in any other curriculum. Clement Arts is able to do this because all of the personnel who created and designed this curriculum did so by donating their time and talent in support of orphan care.

“The Parables curriculum is some of the best I have used. It is easily adapted for any size church or group. The way the curriculum brings the Bible to life is evidence that a lot of prayer and thought went into creating this wonderful journey through the parables. The curriculum doesn’t just tell a story, it provides children with applicable lessons for life. I highly recommend you utilize this great curriculum in your ministry.”
Clint Strickland, Minister to Families with Children
Morningside Baptist Church

“As a pastor, I am always on the look-out for Gospel-centered resources to use in our church. The Parables VBS Curriculum is exactly that! The songs are excellent, the activities are fun, and the entire package works together to point kids to Jesus. On top of that, the proceeds go to help orphans be welcomed into loving homes. Our kids loved it, and I highly recommend it.”
Mitch McGinnis, Pastor
Westminster Presbyterian Church

“We used Parables VBS curriculum at Camp Joy to share the love of Christ with over 600 children during Summer 2015. This was the most versatile and comprehensive curriculum Camp Joy has ever used. The activities contained helpful tips on how to fit them for our campers specifically, with our small budget and campers who are often very unfamiliar with the Bible. Our campers loved the activities, and our counselors loved how smoothly the activities correlated with our daily gospel truths. This curriculum is built on solid biblical truth, and was simple to put into action on our frugal budget while still having a deep impact on the lives and souls of our campers. I would recommend the Parables to any organization looking for an inexpensive, comprehensive curriculum that is deeply rooted in gospel truth!”
Emily McLendon, Administrator
Camp Joy
