Christian Science Vacation Bible Schools seminar

October 31, 2010

Vacation Bible Schools have been a common summer activity in many mainstream Christian churches.  Today, a small but growing number of Christian Science groups are developing, sponsoring and offering Christian Science Vacation Bible Schools (CSVBS) across the USA.  We’ll use this blog to provide information on these activities, sharing ideas, providing lists of CSVBS locations, etc.

Seminar description: Christian Science church members around the country are taking quiet yet significant steps to advance Bible literacy in their communities. This seminar provides information to help your CS Church set up a summer Bible School for your community. Seminar participants are provided with a number of resources including sample curricula, lyrics to Bible songs, etc.

Background: members of the Sunday School staff at First Church of Christ, Scientist in Raleigh, North Carolina were inspired by an article in the Christian Science Journal (January 2006 by Ingrid Peschke) that described how a church in Laguna Niguel, California conducted a summer Bible school for children. The North Carolina folks got in touch with the California church members for additional information, and then organized their own program. During the summer of 2006, the Raleigh church had about 30 children attend their five-day event focused on Christ Jesus’ parables. The Bible camp was such a success that they did it again subsequent summers. CS churches in northern Virginia, Florida, and Washington, DC, have also done Bible school programs in the summer.
