You can still register for vacation Bible school in Cobb County

This summer, don't just sign your children up for summer camps and swim lessons. Keep the faith going all summer long by signing them up for one of the many vacation Bible school programs happening around Cobb County this year.

At VBS, children learn valuable lessons about virtue, study passages from the Bible and participate in charitable endeavors in a fun and interactive way.

Some churches follow a premade VBS curriculum that includes videos, songs and crafts, while other churches create their own.
