Churches prepare for Vacation Bible School

Posted May 7, 2012

UPDATE: Read this post for more Vacation Bible Schools.

The school year is nearly over and that means local churches are gearing up for another summer of Vacation Bible School.

These free or nearly free week-long programs are usually on weekday mornings, though some are offered in the evening. They are typically offered for preschoolers to fifth or sixth graders, though it can vary.

Most require children register and many fill up pretty quickly. So be sure to contact the church before you go to make sure your child has a spot.

Go Ask Mom readers have shared some details about local Vacation Bible Schools with me on Facebook, Twitter and email. Here's what I know about. If you know of more, please share in the comments section below or email me the information and I'll post it.

    Its really cruel to children to insert the word "vacation" before the bible school part.

    I disagree wholeheartedly.
