It Is Written Announces New VBS Program "Flight 3:16"

It Is Written announces a new travel-themed Vacation Bible School (VBS) program, "Flight 3:16." During Flight 3:16, children will visit five countries as they prepare for the ultimate destination, heaven. Flight 3:16 is a complete VBS kit that includes supplies for 14 children.


Melissa Bradshaw, children’s ministries director for It Is Written, created Flight 3:16 in response to the need for a specific VBS program. “Many people have used Buried Treasure, our child evangelism program, as a VBS,” she said. “But after being approached by a local church wanting to host their first VBS, I knew it was time to develop an idea I had been thinking of for some time.”


Flight 3:16 guides children through five foundational Bible topics outlined in the My Place With Jesus Bible Guides. Each day of Flight 3:16, children will learn a new memory verse, made easy through fun Scripture songs. Games, crafts, and snacks are designed to continue teaching daily Bible lessons. Not only will children learn about God's ultimate plan through His Word, but they’ll also learn about the world they live in as they travel virtually to five different countries on five separate continents.


"Everyone is painfully aware of the challenges children face today,” said John Bradshaw, It Is Written president. “They're being bombarded with harmful content everywhere they turn. It's important to give children a clear picture of Jesus and help them see that God's way isn't only a good way—and the right way—but it's also the way that will bring them more joy and help them get the most out of life."

Stored in a fun and convenient suitcase box, this VBS kit includes all instructions and supplies needed to host 14 children: four children, ages 4-6; and 10 children, ages 7-12. Additional supplies are available for purchase from


“Each time we have held Flight 3:16, children and families absolutely love it,” said Melissa. “My hope is to see children everywhere grow their relationship with Jesus through Flight 3:16.”


Flight 3:16 is created by My Place With Jesus, an It Is Written ministry. Learn more about Flight 3:16 by visiting; or calling 1-888-664-5573.
