Focus – Evangelism, Application, Content

Strengths –
  • Once again this year, Group's VBS Roar! has amazing, creative and engaging Bible lessons! I’m so glad to see children engaged in the Bible adventures, but would like to see station leaders open and read from their Bible, or have children do this – this helps children make the visual connection the event they are hearing/experiencing is from the Bible!
  • Complete Director's info - excellent and complete safety, security info and helps to engage children with special needs.
  • I LOVE how the teacher's resources stress why the Bible account matters. Excellent!
  • I LOVE KidVid Cinema and am extremely happy to see it is part of Roar!
  • I love the Imagination Station again this year!!! Children will LOVE the activities and get and remember the points! 
  • Love the “God Sightings” – great way to get children to focus on noticing how God is present, passionate and powerful!
  • I love all the creative resources to help churches decorate! Group makes creating your own African adventure look easy and fun!
  • “Huddle and a Prayer” time is great – love the way it helps children see their crew leaders are praying for them!
  • Group once again has an excellent Opening and Finale – with lots of energy and an abundance of creative ways to engage children! Love it!
  • Operation Kid 2 Kid has a project which engages children in helping babies in need in Zambia through World Vision.
  • Great songs again this year.
  • The digital curriculum is a nice option for churches which want digital again this year - it would be nice as a resource churches on a limited budget could buy on its own.
Would like to see –
  • Ideas to help children serve in their own communities
Group says, "Each day at Roar VBS, kids travel through field-tested rotations that reinforce relevant Bible Points and immerse kids in new adventures. At Roar, one memorable Bible Point is reinforced throughout each station, each day—making it easy to apply long after VBS is over." 

Roar! is an excellent option for a VBS where children will want to be there every day.  Roar! has a strong focus on creatively engaging children in every learning station, solid evangelism, strong Bible content and application, so if you are looking for a VBS with a focus on these things, most certainly take a look at Roar! from Group!
