Twists & Turns helps kids learn that God is sovereign and will teach them His path (Psalm 25:4). As they rediscover the fun of all kinds of games, from classic tabletop games to video games and more, kids will play their way through VBS while learning that Jesus guides them through all the twists and turns of their lives.
