It’s summertime and nothing points that out so much as the vacation Bible schools that are popping up at almost every church in the area.
Some denominations have chosen to use a common theme in their teaching, while others are coming up with their own theme.
Many Baptist churches are using the theme this year of “Boomerang Express, It all Comes Back to Jesus.”
There are several that are meeting this week, while others are scheduled for later in the summer. It’s not too late to get involved.
Bible school began May 27 at Saint Mark Missionary Baptist Church and used the theme of “On the Move, God’s Grace from Place to Place.” Children and adults were invited to become a part of the school as they met in the evening.
Other ongoing schools include Ridge Road Baptist Church with the theme of “Passport to the Promised Land” (6 to 8:30 p.m), Wallace Baptist Church (6 to 8 p.m.), Cedar Hill Baptist Church (5 to 8:30 p.m.,  Zion Hill Baptist Church (6 to 9 p.m.), and First Baptist Church of Brewton (8:30 to 11:30 a.m.). These will run through Friday.  First Baptist Church of East Brewton’s Bible school will be June 8-12, from 5 to 8:45 p.m.
St. Maurice Catholic Church will have vacation Bible school beginning June 14-18 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. St. Maurice is hosting along with St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church and First United Methodist Church and will have classes for ages preschool through the fourth grade.
The Mid High Youth of First United Methodist Church will meet from June 8-11 at the church from 9 to 11 a.m.
Calvary Mennonite Church, located on Mason Mill Pond Road, will have Bible school June 15-20,  at 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 6 p.m. on Saturday. Classes will be for age 3 years through adult.
