Vacation Bible School underway in Atmore

Published 3:43pm Monday, June 10, 2013

Summer is here and the time for Vacation Bible School has arrived as churches all over town prepare to welcome children into their houses of worship.

Last week a crowd gathered each morning at Brooks Memorial Baptist Church for this year’s VBS, “Colossal Coaster World.”

Friday, at a special Family Night service, Pastor Robert Heard led the children as they showed parents how much they had learned over the course of the week.

“I just want to thank all of the parents for letting us spend this time with your kids this week,” Heard said.

Although VBS at Brooks Memorial has ended, there are still plenty of opportunities for kids in the Atmore area to enjoy the Bible School festivities this summer including upcoming VBS programs:
