In light of the discovery that many aspects of Roar! Vacation Bible School curriculum perpetuate racist stereotypes and cultural appropriation, we are sharing this article from the General Commission on Religion and Race, VBS is not Immune to Racism. The preview elements of the VBS curriculum were very limited in scope, and we were not previously aware of the content mentioned in this article until we had already purchased the curriculum. We are sorry for any harm or confusion this may have caused and are committed to a more thorough vetting process in the future.
Instead of using “Roar,” our theme this year will be “To Mars and Beyond: Explore Where God’s Love Can Take You.” We are looking forward to an outstanding VBS experience with solid lessons, fun games, great music, and fun for all involved.
Cultural and racial diversity and the value of all people as God’s beautiful creation and gift are important to all of us, and we want to make sure that anything we teach our children values the entirety of God’s kingdom and the belovedness of each person.
