Vacation Bible school




“The children really liked the building projects. Everyone was anxious to come back the next day.”
—Jeffrelyn Arterburn, Collierville, Tennessee United Methodist Church

“Under Construction” is a vacation Bible school curriculum developed by Smyth & Helwys Publishing in consultation with Habitat for Humanity International.

About the curriculum
The curriculum uses construction metaphors to teach children about community and the need for decent shelter for all people. “Under Construction” shows children how to help others in their neighborhood through Christian service.

The benefits
Children learn Biblical scripture, and churches gain vital witnesses for Christ. In the process, Habitat for Humanity gains potential advocates and builders.

Most importantly, families in the community immediately benefit from the teachings of “Under Construction.” Some vacation Bible school children have made and presented crafts to Habitat homeowners. Others have raised hundreds of dollars to help local Habitat affiliates build houses.
