Abundance Orchard ™
“Where faith grows and hungry people are fed”
Bring your community and faith family together with a Vacation Bible School experience they are bound to love! Abundance Orchard™ offers a complete, all-in-one hunger-action themed VBS program for 2 years.
Please order only one copy for your congregation and make as many copies as needed.
Everything you need to have an awesome VBS program is here. You’re encouraged to use Parts 1 & 2 for two complete years of VBS Materials.
Start with the Old Testament in Part 1 and walk your students through scriptures exploring God’s miraculous provision and abundance for His people. Then follow up with the New Testament in Part 2, and focus on scriptures illustrating Jesus’ use of meals to gather those most in need of His love.
These Materials Are Biblically-Based
Abundance Orchard™ is meaningful, theologically sound, fun for everyone involved, and focused on scripture. You will have the opportunity to engage your children, students, and leaders in a meaningful experience this summer and have a blast at the same time!

Thank you letter from Maysville United Methodist Church, North Carolina:
“Thank you! This was the Best VBS we’ve had in a long time! This program was well laid-out – everything we needed was right there, and because of that, the planning of VBS went so much smoother this year, and people were a lot less stressed – which, in turn, made our VBS experience much more FUN! … We plan to use Year 2 next year. And thank you for all you do to feed the hungry.”
These materials are available to you FREE of charge, as part of the mission to nourish spiritual hungers as well as physical hungers. When you use these materials, please consider partnering in the ministry by encouraging daily mission offerings for the Society of St. Andrew.
