The Bible accounts of God's mission for us share how He made the universe, His promise of a Savior to Abram, the birth of Jesus, our Savior, Jesus' death and resurrection and Jesus' ascension."
    Focus – Application, Evangelism and Bible Content

    Strengths –
    • Miraculous Mission has a strong evangelistic emphasis
    • Excellent, creative and engaging lessons which do a tremendous job of involving children in the Bible adventures.
    • I especially love the second part of each Bible lesson where children talk in teams about the lesson, what it means and how they live it - excellent!
    • I LOVE the "Bible Challenge" station – LOVE how children focus on God's saving Word, learning it, understanding it and living it in their everyday lives!
    • Strong focus on the Bible and getting the children into it!
    • Director’s book is easy to understand and covers almost everything you need to know as you plan, prepare and present your VBS with helpful info for recruiting and training volunteers.
    • Love the "Daily Encouragement" ideas which connect with each day's point . . . you will be able to use these with your volunteers during VBS!
    • Excellent and complete safety info - all publishers should include the info Concordia does!
    • One of the best - most complete - director's books!
    • LOVE the focus on caring for and encouraging volunteers - excellent!
    Would like to see –
    • More enthusiasm in the open/closing – object lessons, games, science projects, stunts – something to capture the children’s attention and get them thinking!
    • More craft ideas - especially inexpensive ideas which do not require craft kits.
    • While there are some activities to help children take what they learned out of the church and live it in their everyday lives, every day, I'd like to see a stronger focus on specific things children will do each day to live what they learned.
    • Information on how to involve special needs children in the VBS - I'd like to see ideas spread throughout the curriculum.
    Concordia says, "Our God created our vast, amazing universe and also loves each of us with a vast, amazing love! He loved the world so much He sent Jesus the promised Savior to live, suffer, die and rise again to save us - the most Miraculous Mission of all!

    I am so impressed with Miraculous Mission VBS. If you are looking for a VBS with a strong evangelistic focus and a focus on challenging children who are believers; all with a theme which is thoroughly woven through each part of the day, take a good look at Miraculous Mission. 
    Concordia did an excellent job with their VBS - if you find a place to use it - for VBS, Sundays, mid-week all year or a special family event, you will be so glad you did!
