As the temperatures rise, vacations are taking place and children are outside playing. Also with the change of season, comes time for Vacation Bible School.

Signs can be found hanging outside of churches advertising their events’ theme, time and location all in hopes of teaching children more about Christ.

“We hope for boys and girls to grow more in love with Jesus and we hope to bring our children to Christ,” First Baptist Church of Demopolis pastor Carl Williams said.

First Baptist Church will hold their VBS this June 3-7 from 8:30 to noon with the theme Colossal Coastal World.

Williams said they have a great time at VBS and a great group of helpful volunteers.

The First United Methodist Church in Demopolis is also preparing for VBS this year with their theme Kingdom Rock…Where kids stand strong for God. The event is for rising kindergarten through fifth and will take place June 24-28 from 1:30-5 p.m.

“Our theme this year is Kingdom Rock…where kids stand strong for God.  It is our prayer that Kingdom Rock VBS will allow God’s love to come to life like never before drawing kids and adults closer to Christ,” Jennifer Jordan of First United Methodist Church said.
