Voices-only Wednesday: A revival (Creedence Clearwater style) at VBS


Welcome to Voices-only Wednesday, when we scour the Internet to bring you the best a cappella tunes we can find.

It’s Vacation Bible School season, which increasingly seems to mean music videos. Here’s the latest from my home congregation, the Memorial Road Church of Christ in Oklahoma City. The theme for this year’s VBS is “Master of the Universe.” If you were a kid in the 1980s, you’ll catch the reference.

(I got excited when I saw this year’s logo, thinking that He-Man and Skeletor might make an appearance in the skits. But no such luck.)

The kids did get a taste of some classic rock, at least. Here’s an a cappella retelling of Jesus healing (and forgiving) a paralytic from the Gospel of Mark, chapter 2, to the tune of “Willy and the Poor Boys” by Credence Clearwater Revival. 

VBS, meet CCR:

Speaking of classic rock, here’s a callback to last year’s VBS about Queen Esther, to the tune of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'”

See the full post from last year for more videos, including a Katy Perry tune (no foolin’).
