New City is partnering with Solid Foundation Kids to provide virtual VBS content for churches! We will provide your church with everything you need to hold a virtual version of Vacation Bible School – all YOU will need to provide is a facilitator to guide the kids from your church through the material each day. We will make it as simple as possible for you to implement the different components of each session. This is an incredible opportunity for your kids to invite their friends and neighbors to join your church’s VBS group as they interact with God’s Word.
The first step is to register your church, and you will be able to access the content at any time. All materials will be available by the week of June 22, so we recommend holding VBS for your church on June 29 or later.
This content is being provided free to you by New City Network in partnership with Solid Foundation Kids. If you would like to further support the work of Solid Foundation Kids, please mail a check to:
The Collison Project, Attn: Solid Foundation Kids, 15230 Eclipse Drive, Manassas, VA 20112
If you’d prefer to donate directly to New City Network, you may do so online. Making a donation to NCN will help us continue to support the work of church planters with materials such as these. This will be considered an undesignated donation to the New City Network General Fund.

Solid Foundation Kids
James and Danielle both worked at McLean Bible Church for 7 years in full-time children’s ministry. More recently, they have partnered with New City Network to develop a “How to Start a Children’s Ministry” curriculum, designed to help new churches launch vibrant and healthy children’s ministries. Because of their experience working in a wide variety of church settings and starting ministries from the ground up, they provide consulting services for church plants who are looking for extra guidance as they prepare to launch or revitalize their kids’ ministries. The Whitleys are also parents to five young kids, so discipling children is especially close to their heart on a daily basis.
As a result of the pandemic, they have been creating weekly content to help connect and keep their own church’s kids engaged with the Bible. These are unprecedented times, and they didn’t want to miss the opportunity that VBS provides to connect neighbors and families with the Word of God this summer – and the opportunity to invite friends and neighbors to join in on the fun!
