What is Vinegraft?
In these times of physical distancing and lockdown, we've all been looking for ways to maintain community. This is true for our children as well.
Video games provide worlds where friends can connect, but there are many drawbacks to the unfiltered and unconstrained realities of most online environments. Our children need private online spaces where they can grow healthy relationships, but also safe places where ONLY friends they know from church can gather.
Not to mention, our children don't need more screen time. We want them to dig into God's word. We want them to grow in their faith. We want them to abide in Christ.
If there's going to be a faith based platform for our children, it needs to be intentional on both of these fronts.
So, what if there was an online world where kids could meetup with their local church friends for an organized time of fun and Bible teaching? A world where the kids would need to work together and crack open their Bibles to solve trivia, puzzles, riddles, treasure hunts, and mazes? A world where Bible learning adventures are intermingled with theological building blocks of the faith?
That's where Vinegraft was born. Yes, it rhymes with Minecraft, and yes, Jesus is the "vine" that we trust in and are grafted into (John 15:5, Romans 11:17).
We are writing an entire Bible curriculum and creating this virtual world. We are partnering with churches like yours to offer this service, to augment kids church programs.
