Many of us across the country are still making preparations for VBS 2018 to kick off at our local churches, but Group VBS (the masterminds behind 2018’s Shipwrecked theme) just announced their theme for next summer, and it has us all ready to make some serious noise!
Roar! Life is Wild, God is Good is all about exploring God’s goodness through an epic African safari adventure while celebrating a ferocious faith that powers us through this wild life! Kids will have tons of fun, all while being presented the gospel through activities such as the Imagination Station, the Hungry Herd Cafe, Stampede Sports, Safari Celebration and SO much more!
Take a peak at their promo video that they just released to help you get a good picture of what next year’s adventure is going to look like!

To help you kick off your VBS 2019 planning, I’ve put together a selection of fun decor and supplies that fits the African Safari theme so that you can have quick and easy access to some really fun backdrops, props and more! Most items listed here are found at Amazon, so if you’re a prime member, you can have everything you need delivered to your door in just 2 days!
Keep in mind: Many items shared here are from Amazon (you know how I feel about my beloved 2 day shipping) and many items are from Oriental Trading, who each year does an OUTSTANDING job of keeping VBS supplies relevant to the yearly theme. I will make a note of where each item is listed in case you have a preference of where to order. Oriental Trading frequently has free shipping deals, most often on orders over $49.

Please Pass On The VBS Love!
After your VBS has come to an end, please reach out to a fellow church in your area to see if they could use your leftover VBS supplies. Many churches (often small congregations) elect to not have a VBS because funding is too tight. Just think about all of the additional children that could be presented with the gospel because donated decor made VBS at a church possible!
Have you already started daydreaming about the fun safari adventure you and your church will be taking during the summer of 2019 with Roar! VBS from Group? Do you have additional decor ideas you’d like to share? I’ve always loved VBS so much, and I love sharing helpful tips and tricks to help make your VBS a success! I truly hope your VBS makes kids come alive and ROAR! with the love of Christ in their hearts!
