Our VBS Team at First Lutheran is aware of some of the recent news about portions of Group Publication's Roar VBS materials. We have made the necessary changes to address these concerns.
Here is Group's statement regarding the concerns that have been raised:
"Hello, Friends in Ministry! Thank you for calling to our attention some concerns with some experiences in Roar VBS. We are very sorry and apologize for any misunderstanding, insensitivities, or hurt we have unintentionally caused. Your feedback reminds us of the importance of humbly listening to those we serve.
To address these concerns, our team has created modifications and revisions to the curriculum. These are available today for you to download here: http://bit.ly/2F0UAQI
We are committed to redouble our efforts in future programs to create and vet materials that are inclusive, respectful, loving, and focused on Jesus.
Our heart is to immerse your kids in God’s love in a way that sticks with them forever.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at VBSTeam@group.com, and we’re happy to respond. We appreciate your direct communication and pray that your VBS will impact kids’ lives and bring them closer to Jesus!
It is our goal to bring God's grace, mercy, and Jesus' love to each and every person who walks through our church doors. If you have any questions about our VBS or anything else for that matter, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We are blessed to serve whenever and however God plans. God's richest blessings to you!
