ScoutAbout Back Yard Bible Club

This 5-session, portable study can be used as a neighborhood or community Vacation Bible School, a summer activity for your children and their friends, a service opportunity to bring the gospel of Christ to children’s shelters, boys and girls clubs, etc., or as a church-sponsored program. IT’S EASY TO DO! Simply review the materials provided and decide when, where and how you want to lead this in your neighborhood or community. There are many options! 1 day a week for 5 weeks, 5 days for 1 week, every other week. You pick!

ScoutAbout is a fast-paced, lighthearted, humorous adventure that teaches all of us to do everything we do “Out Of Service” to the Lord. Through their new friend Skyler and the misadventures in the laboratory of his outrageous grandfather, Professor von Himmel, and his faithful assistant, Helga, children will hear from the Bible about the kindness Jesus showed to others. Based on Jesus’ own service of feeding the 5,000, healing Jairus’ daughter, Jesus and the little children, Jesus at the healing pool, and Jesus’ death on the cross, they will learn that Jesus is the way the truth and the life and the best way that we can serve others is to point them to Him. During each session, children will SCOUT about their neighborhoods and communities to complete their mission of the day to Serve with what you’ve got; Care quietly; Open your heart; U go!; and Trust Jesus.

You will find everything that you need in the Leader Guide inclucing daily service projects, interactive Bible lessons, craft projects, snack suggestions, and games. There also is a Supply Bin located at the end of each lesson, which has all of the support materials you need. Children will complete a ScoutAbout scrapbook to keep as a reminder to continue in the spirit of serving others as a life pattern.

Share the Gospel of Christ to children in your neighborhoods and communities through Scoutabout!

Various Online Resources

Here are some other ministries where you may find some additional, valuable resources. Click on any of the links below to be redirected.

Chronological Bible Storyboard Set
This Chronological Bible Storyboard Set can be used with any age group as a powerful visual during The Word segment of each lesson, or anytime a Bible story is being told or retold. Our Adaptation for Children With Disabilities uses these types visuals in every lesson. Teach children the story of the Bible using these colorful felt figures and background. Set includes one mounted presentation board, four background sheets, and eight sheets of figures--enough to teach 150 Bible stories from Genesis through the life of Christ. Set also includes Storyboard Carry Bag and helpful Teacher's Manual.

National Center for Biblical Parenting
This ministry began under the name Effective Parenting in 1992 before the name was changed in 2002 to the National Center for Biblical Parenting. The founders realized the need for biblical, practical parenting resources. They are committed to writing, teaching, and counseling parents from a biblical perspective.

Kingstone Comics
Kingstone Comics was founded with the goal of being the ‘MarvelTM’ of the faith market, the largest publisher of Christian comic books and Biblical worldview graphic novels worldwide (currently in 95 countries and growing). The company is best known for the Kingstone Bible, the most complete graphic adaptation of the Bible ever done. Comic books are great for reluctant readers and their transcultural nature can assist the approximately 50-60% of the worlds population who is illiterate or semi-literate. Strong visuals appeal to young readers and they are a safe entry portal for the non-churched to investigate the Bible and historical truth claims about Christianity.
