Along with the summer activities such as swimming, playing at local parks and another activity for children is bubbling to the core—Vacation Bible School.

Vacation Bible School, in its traditional sense, is often a time for children to learn Bible-based lessons in a church environment during the summer.

The structure of a vacation bible school program may range from completing assignments in workbooks, hands-on activities and fieldtrips.

In South Fulton, four churches have Vacation Bible School programs upcoming, all with different themes and age groups welcome.
