Vacation Bible school is a wonderful opportunity for us to expand our outreach in the community.
The origins of Vacation Bible School can be traced back to Hopedale, Illinois in 1894. Sunday school teacher D. T. Miles, who also was a public school teacher, felt she was limited by time constraints in teaching the Bible to children. So, she started a daily Bible school to teach children during the summer.
Thanks to Alyson Murray and the other volunteers who help make this program a success. Vacation Bible school is a great summer activity for our children. Christian education is at the heart of our strategic vision and this program is one that helps in that effort.
