Horizon Church, located at 316 Signal Hill Drive in Statesville, will host “Breakout: Escape from Ordinary to Extraordinary,” an escape room-themed Vacation Bible School, on July 18-22.

This energetic VBS curriculum is packed with fun puzzles to solve, obstacle course races, snacks, crafts, music, games and funny skits that connect to each Bible lesson. VBS classes at Horizon will be available for children in K- 5 each evening from 6 to 8 p.m. Adding to the excitement of the closing graduation on Thursday, July 22, a Family Night hot dog supper will be served to those in attendance, and there will also be a drawing for a Prize Package Escape Room session for four, courtesy of Make The Xscape in Statesville.

“I’m super excited about bringing the Breakout VBS to Horizon. It is so fun but also shares the gospel and the love of God every night,” says Kelly Lackey, children’s director at Horizon Church.

When asked why she does VBS, Lackey responds, “Because so many people make the decision to follow Christ through VBS as a child. It’s an exciting part of the summertime, a time for the kids to have a blast and do something different at church. They get to experience the gospel in a different way, often times with new friends and it makes an impact on them.”

Through this Breakout escape room-themed VBS, kids will learn that only God has the power to come in and break us out of the ordinary to lead us to the extraordinary.
