Ultimate Starter Kit Plus Digital - Roar VBS 2019 by Group
Are you ready for an African adventure that engages the whole herd? Your Roar Ultimate Starter Kit is packed with everything you need to get started on a VBS experience where kids discover a ferocious faith that powers them through this wild life.
This kit includes physical resources and samples just like the standard starter kit, but it also comes with the Digital Download Access Pack. This pack includes a USB drive loaded with digital leader guides, music, videos and more. It opens up all-new ways to manage, share, and utilize your VBS content.
The Roar Ultimate Starter Kit Plus Digital allows you to deliver resources with the touch of a button. You can hand volunteers the manuals from your Starter Kit or e-mail pdf's so they can use whichever format feels most comfortable. The Plus Digital kit also safeguards against leaders who might lose that that ever-important Sing & Play manual at the 11th hour.

Ratings & Reviews
The Group VBS is always great. The flash drive with the digital downloads didn't work in our kit this year. Be sure to check yours right away and not wait too close to your VBS start date. Concordia immediately sent the files via email though.
ROARing for the First Time.
Our church hasn't offered VBS in several years. This will be the first time for us using Group VBS; So far, I am extremely pleased with Group's ROAR. Of course, the proof will be in the pudding this summer when we teach VBS. One option I wish was included, the ability to not have to purchase the preschool version. But, if we were offering the whole program, the cost really isn't that bad for a total Elementary Curriculum. Love this Theme
Everything You need in one place!
The Ultimate Starter Kit Plus Digital is everything you need to start planning for VBS. It has both the paper version and the digital of all the manuals and guides. In addition, you have a sample of the imagination station items.The kit price is really good and was delivered in a reasonable time frame. The best part of this kit itself is the can with all the materials. This year they really stepped up the game in getting us excited for VBS. When you open the can it roars!
It is awesome. It comes with a roaring lid which is so cool. The info in it is perfect. Now on to planning....

My go to place for VBS!
by Mrs. Kim
Always a great experience ordering from Concordia Supply. Prompt delivery. My go to place for VBS.

This Starter Kit is great! It includes all the leader manuals for elementary and preschool leaders as well as samples and decorating ideas and DVDs. But the best part and the reason why my church orders this type of kit each year, is because it includes the phenomenal digital jump drive! This jump drive has allowed us to be able to go fully digital and it contains so many clip art images, resources and miscellaneous materials it is invaluable! Last year, our main assembly computer shut down and we lost all previously uploaded slides, buddy videos, music videos and logos only 20 minutes before the opening session was set to begin. If we did not have the digital jump drive on hand that contained EVERYTHING we needed then we would have been lost for the day. But the digital jump drive saved us and in well under 20 minutes we had all that we needed for the rest of the VBS week reloaded and ready to go!

The Roar kit is alright. It contains the basics only. I wish it had the decorating posters and better bible buddies. The craft ideas are also very cheaply made. I do like having the digital files of everything.
A great VBS!
This VBS is easy to use and I love how all of the stations work together to explain the Bible truth & memory verse. The curriculum provides a lot of hands on activities to make the Bible stories come alive & memorable to the kids. The music is awesome! The kids loved all aspects of this VBS.
Over all high quality Starter kit - We've been using them for years
We just wrapped up our VBS with Roar and had a fabulous experience! The kit helped us prepare well and figure out adaptations before committing to all the materials. Music is always so well done and the format works super well for us. Decided to tweak a few things after seeing some of the criticisms (mostly over reactive, but reminded us to keep in the forefront respect for all people and our differences). The most concerning was the way the Elementary story role playing of Israelite slaves. So had the teacher tell the story as they made the bricks , using words like 'can you imagine being told to ...?' The presto chango gizmo was cool, but took too long without some extra prep, but the rest were fine. Appreciate having the Celebration summary skit as we use that on our final evening to share with parents. Thank you!
We loved using roar this year by group.
<br> We love that all the Bible stories went together instead of being separate stories from the Bible, it flowed with our every day lessons. Instructions were very thorough even though we did use our own adaptations it was still a really good program.
I love Group's "Easy" VBS, and the Digital Version is a No-Brainer
by Lisa G
As a third-year VBS director, I love the Group Easy VBS and the starter kit + digital gives me everything I need to plan. I love that I have all the manuals, clip art, etc. on the USB drive. I think the way they make shaped USB drives (this year's is a lion) is cute and certainly makes sure I know which USB I'm looking for, but I wonder how much it runs up the kit price?! There is a lot of discussion about the racial insensitivies in this curriculum, but if you are like most churches, you read and adapt to make it what fits your audience. My only real request of Group would be to make day one snack something more economical and easier to prep than a snack with fresh fruit. We plan for 100 children each year, and this year we had 60. I usually wait to buy the snack items for days two through five until I know how many kids I have, as they are not generally returnable like other unopened products are.

rotations did not allow enough time for all activities
Great start...still missing a few things
by Pastor Holly
The Roar Starter kit was efficient and very helpful. It provides a lot of information and resources. I took off a star because Group still will not offer the fonts in the $200+ purchase price, and videos that are needed in opening and closing segments still have to be downloaded from their site, which is time-consuming and often troublesome. The USB is most helpful and worth the extra money.
Thorough and useful
Thorough and complete - this digital starter kit was very useful to our team, and allowed us to plan for our VBS far in advance using the many promotional materials and downloads. We will order this kit each year!
Digital kit ROCKS!
by Kim Butz
I hesitated to get the digital kit this year as I wasn't sure it would be worth the extra cost. But it was SO worth it! I was able to plan and put things together at home, or where ever I was. Made my hectic VBS life so much easier than in past years where I would have to run back to get my directors manual. I also wasn't worried about my station leaders having the booklets. I was able to look at the flash drive to get the information I needed even without the books. This was a lifesaver in so many ways!
