Crank up the power of God’s one big story in your life.

Every kid loves a good story, whether it’s a book, a movie, or a video game. So get your kids excited about the most incredible true story of all - God’s loving pursuit of us through time.

The Turn It Up Worship Camp is a five-day VBS that takes a journey through the Bible, giving kids context for God’s Big Story. Help kids discover how they can be a part of the story when they turn up the power of God’s love in their life.
