Risen Indeed! is a Vacation Bible School centered on the simplest and most beautiful truth of the Christian faith, that Jesus is risen, and because He lives, those who are baptized and believe in Him shall live also. Geared toward a more mission-oriented setting, the program tracks, over five lessons, through the simple teachings of the resurrection: 1. We were made in the image of God; 2. We lost that image and must return to dust; 3. God promises to resurrect His faithful saints; 4. Jesus is the firstfruits of this resurrection; 5. Through baptism we share in His resurrection.
Created in the context of a urban, black mission, this program uses traditional iconography from the historic Ethiopian orthodox church.
