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—In Jesus the Victory is Won!
