Every summer, churches around Northeast Mississippi live out Jesus’ teaching “Let the little children come unto me.”
With music, art, crafts and lessons, Vacation Bible Schools spread the good news that they hope will foster a lifetime love for the Lord.
“The whole idea behind Vacation Bible School is telling kids about Jesus,”said Rebecca Feather, children’s minister at First Baptist Church in Tupelo.
Many churches around the area hosted Vacation Bible School events during the first two weeks of June.
The Daily Journal visited Blackland M.B. Church in the Palmetto community, and St. James Catholic Church, First Baptist Church and Hope Church, all in Tupelo. See more photos in today’s Daily Journal.
