Dear Parents: Hear ye,
hear ye! In Jesus, the Victory is Won!
That’s the message children learn at Concordia Publishing House’s
2017 VBS with Purpose®, Mighty Fortress. Join the celebration—where
children learn about Jesus, our Savior King, who conquers our fears
and delivers us from evil. So raise your banner high, and give
thanks to God.
At Mighty Fortress, VBS kids confidently
celebrate that Jesus, their champion, has won the victory over sin,
death, and Satan, acts through His Word, and keeps His promises.
Because the victory’s won, every day is a day to celebrate! God’s
victory is shown in the Bible accounts of the fall of Jericho, God’s
rescue of King Hezekiah’s kingdom, King Josiah’s reading of God’s
Word, the Savior King’s triumphal entry, and Jesus’ victory through
His death and resurrection.
Each day, kids look into the
Bible to discover that God is our Mighty Fortress, our Shield, and
our Deliverer. Each VBS session starts at Mighty Fortress Opening,
where the children gather with their team leader. They sing, hear
God’s Word, pray, watch the opening theme video, learn more about
your mission project, and learn the day’s Take-Home Point.
After the Opening, teams head off to five rotation sites for
Storytelling, Bible Challenge, Snacks, Games, and Crafts. Finally,
everyone comes back together at Mighty Fortress Closing for music,
prayer, and a wrap-up with the closing theme video. Before they go,
kids get a Victory’s Won Collectible to help them share the day’s
theme and Bible verse with their friends and family.
Parents, grandparents, and friends are invited to join us at
Mighty Fortress. Closing
for each day at Saint Cyril of Jerusalem Parish
- a daily exploration of
Jesus the Victory is Won!
