Discover that God is good even when life gets wild!

At Roar, kids discover that God is good even when life gets wild! Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Wild Bible Adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with the Safari Celebration that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned.

At Roar VBS, children don’t just hear about God’s love; they see it,  touch it, sing it, taste it, and put it into action through God Sightings. As they travel from station to station, they go deeper into their understanding of God and God’s Son, Jesus. Most important, children learn that because Jesus loves us, he came to die for our sins and make a way for us to live with God forever.

The final day, Thursday, June 13, will conclude with a program for parents and family. The program begins at 4:30 p.m.

Roar VBS is for kids ages 4 through kids entering 5th grade.

ROAR VBS Parent Letter

Dear Parents:

Get ready to embark this amazing adventure with us!

At Roar VBS, kids discover that God is good even when life gets wild! Roar VBS is filled with unforgettable Bible-learning experiences kids will see, hear, touch, and even taste! Plus, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats keep everyone on the move.​ (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.)

VBS is from 1:00-4:30pm each day.  However, new this year, we are offering a free bag lunch to students at noon. You MUST register for this on the registration form so we can plan the number of bag lunches needed accordingly. Students coming for lunch will be supervised in the Fellowship Hall.

Parents, grandparents, and friends are invited to join us for Safari Celebration each day at 4:00 p.m. That’s where we will be having a daily celebration of Jesus’ love you won’t want to miss.

Everyone—parents, grandparents, family, friends-is invited to our closing program on Thursday, June 13 at 4:30 p.m. Come and celebrate our week at Roar VBS with awesome music and hear from the kids what they learned during the week.

We are able to offer Roar VBS for FREE. Every child will be getting a Roar T-shirt (at no cost to you), so please make sure you marked a t-shirt size on the registration form.  Each family will also receive a ROAR VBS soundtrack CD this year.

Check out our Volunteer Information and Additional Ways to Help Make VBS a Success pages for more information on how you can help us offer this amazing fun, faith-filled VBS adventure to our youth.

ROAR Donation Information

Through God’s blessings and the generosity of donors, Bethany Lutheran Church continues to be able to offer Vacation Bible School free of charge to all participants-both Bethany members and those in the community.  Every child in the community should have the opportunity to discover they Jesus is always there for them. Roar VBS gives us this opportunity through amazing experiments, games, lip-smacking snacks, surprising Bible adventures, incredible music, and making new friends.

However, there is an expense for us to do this.  There is an estimated cost of $25 per participant for Roar VBS.  In addition to the materials, supplies, and food, this year’s cost also includes a t-shirt for all participants. Kids love wearing the t-shirts every day!

How can you help us continue to make this vital children’s ministry available to everyone in the community?
