A Roarin' Good Time!

Kids love dinosaurs, but are often confused how they fit with God's Word. Welcome to TrueRassic Park, a literal, six-day creation adventure which shows that dinosaurs were merely animals, created along with all the other animals, and that the Bible can and should be trusted for its account of creation, and for God's plan for salvation! NOTE: As our oldest available VBS product, TrueRassic Park was only produced in NIV and was structured differently than our more modern VBS products. But at $75, it remains a great value!

What's Needed

Items you'll need to supply

 
Item Explanation
Classrooms Needed 4 Minimum. Up to 8 for large programs.
Volunteers Needed One adult for every ten children, plus five
Supplies Needed for Crafts, Games, Snacks, etc. Our crafts, games, and snack projects all call for low-cost supplies which can be purchased from nearly any discount store like Walmart. Alternately, many of the supplies can be purchased at discounts from various vendors online. The specific items you'll need are detailed in the VBS materials themselves, and the quantities needed depends upon the number of children you will have.
Paper If you choose to print everything we supply, you'll need 500-1000 sheets or more of paper. See "Printing Solutions" below.
Ink or Toner If you choose to print everything we supply, you'll probably go through a couple of ink cartridges. Laser printing may be more cost-effective. See "Printing Solutions" below.
Printing Solutions It may not be necessary for you to print many of our materials. Using smartphones or tablets, you and your staff can access our materials from those devices and work straight from their screens. Or, you can have multiple people login to our website and ask them to print a portion of the materials you need. For example, you could ask teachers to print their own lessons, etc. Smaller churches will surely not need to do as much printing, and larger churches will tend to be more capable of larger amounts of printing. Higher amounts of printing will cause increased costs in paper and toner. However, even if your ministry spends as much as $150 for ink and paper, the cost of our VBS still comes in lower than most of our competitors.

When comparing VBS prices, you need to know about additional expenses you'll incur. With our VBS, you'll need to buy some paper and some ink or toner. But with our competition, you'll have to buy a whole lot more! Check out the cost breakdowns below for a VBS of 100 children:

TruthQuest Full VBS Kit: $75

Includes everything from the "What's Included" section above, and it's all re-printable. To use it for a VBS of 100 children, you'll just have to buy some paper and ink or toner:
