Bring this low-cost VBS program to your church!
TruthQuest's very first Vacation Bible School marked the emergence of a new way of providing VBS materials to churches! With the philosophy that a VBS kit should be all-inclusive, affordable, easy to use and deeply Biblical, "The Ultimate Treasure" is a VBS which kids in your church are sure to love!
And although TruthQuest was "just getting started" when we introduced "The Ultimate Treasure VBS" and our newer VBS kits are some of the best on the market, TruthQuest continues to offer this well-written VBS kit as a low-cost VBS solution for your church!

"The Ultimate Treasure" TruthQuest VBS program takes kids on a week-long treasure hunt which includes adventures in honesty, science, moral dilemmas, mysteries and more, all leading to the treasure of truth found in God's Word! Kids will meet the TruthQuest characters and learn the importance of weighing all knowledge against the authoritative Truth of God's Word. In an age when values such as relativism and thought-policing are on the rise, it is more important than ever to equip kids to discern the real truth from God's Word! Each TruthQuest character teaches kids from a unique perspective, giving kids a well-rounded view of the application of God's Word.

Complete, Simple, and Easy to Use!
The TruthQuest VBS program comes on two compact discs--one of them is a worship music CD containing five toe-tapping worship songs for kids, and the other is a CD-ROM to use with any personal computer. Simply insert the CD-ROM into your computer, install the free Adobe® Acrobat™ Reader software included on the CD-ROM, and you're all ready to open and print all of the instructions, ideas, lessons, skits, flyers and forms you'll need to operate VBS at your church! And best of all, most of our materials are reproducible! There are no worries about copyright infringement--just print or photocopy as many copies of the materials as you need! It couldn't be simpler!

Theme:
The theme for the TruthQuest VBS is a treasure hunt--a 5-day search for the ultimate treasure. Children are taken on adventures through science, Bible stories, mysteries and contemporary moral dilemmas, each of which teach the children the importance of seeking out, examining, and defending the truth found in God's Word. The treasure hunt ends in the discovery of the ultimate treasure--a complete gospel presentation! The TruthQuest VBS teaches kids from unique perspectives and emphasizes the need for discernment in today's world. Just because a child is taught something doesn't automatically make it true. All teachings should be checked against God's Word for accuracy and truth!

Why WebLink?
The idea of purchasing a VBS program on CD-ROM seemed new to many churches when TruthQuest introduced the concept in 2001. After all, VBS programs are typically sold in flashy, colorful and expensive packages. Often times, the materials you purchase are not reproducible, and frequently, you'll find that you need to go back to the publisher of the VBS to acquire additional books, manuals, lessons and materials. At TruthQuest, we do things a little differently. Instead of spending large amounts of money creating fancy unnecessary packaging, forcing the price of our materials up, we have opted to keep costs at a minimum--for us and for you! One CD-ROM includes ALL OF THE VBS MATERIALS YOU'LL NEED! For one low price, you get all of the guides, manuals, lessons, skits, templates, flyers, forms and clip art you'll need to plan and operate your VBS. Simply insert the TruthQuest VBS CD-ROM into your computer, install the included software (if necessary), and print as many copies of our manuals, guides, lessons and materials as you need. Most of our materials are fully reproducible! You can print them yourself in full color or in BW, and you can photocopy them as well. Because our materials come on CD-ROM, they are also replaceable and reusable. If you spill coffee on your Director's Guidebook, simply print out a new one! Or, repeat the VBS program a couple of years after you originally use it--all of the materials will still be there for you on CD-ROM! Why didn't somebody think of this before?

Memorable Characters and Unique Perspectives!
The TruthQuest characters are featured weekly in our Sunday Morning Children's Worship program and are instrumental in teaching kids in our VBS program. Here's a quick overview of our characters and their teaching focuses:

Doc
Doc is a creation scientist who knows that God created our universe just as it says in the Bible, and that science is simply the study of how this wondrous world works. Doc teaches Biblical principles using illustrations from science, and emphasizes an understanding of the scientific method so that the children will be able to recognize that concepts such as Darwinism are not truly scientific facts. True science can never disprove the existence and power of God! In fact, as Doc teaches, it points to God!
Casey
Casey is a detective who sets out to solve simple mysteries that arise in dramatic skits. Casey's searches for the truth often lead her to situations where the answers seem unclear--until she discovers the truth in her Bible. Casey likes to remind the children to think like the Berean Christians, who verified Paul's words to them by checking in their own copies of the Scriptures. Casey teaches children that even when the answers seem unclear, God's Word will always help them to find their way and solve their mysteries!
Blade
Blade is a not-so-super super hero who tries to protect truth and justice in the city. Despite his lack of any special powers and his general silliness, Blade does have one very useful tool on his side--the Sword of the Spirit--his Bible! Blade teaches the children to become "master swordsmen" by properly wielding the Sword of the Spirit through Scripture memorization.
Reid
Reid is something of an adventurer, and his favorite kinds of adventures are those which lead him into books of the Bible, books of literature, and books of history. Reid teaches the children how obedience to the Scriptures can resolve conflicts in literature, whether fictitious, historical or Biblical, and how disobedience to God can result in disaster.
