St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church held its annual Vacation Bible School June 5-7 from 6-8 p.m. The theme this summer was ‘Camp Firelight’ and lessons focused on the bible verse “Whenever I’m afraid, I will put my trust in you,” Psalm 56:3.

“This vacation bible school marked a new beginning because of the fact that school is out  and it gives us an opportunity to corral our children,” stated Rev. James H. Willis, Sr., senior pastor of St. Paul MBC.

“We want to coral them and give them some spiritual background because this unfriendly world will be trying to attack them but with them coming into Vacation Bible School, they were all taught on one accord and it makes an entire difference in what the rest of their summer will be like,” he stated.

Students young and old learned about trusting God through difficult circumstances. The classes studied biblical figures such as Ruth and Jacob as well as accounts of Jesus’ word from the Gospel. The engaging lessons encourage all attending to lean on the Lord and deepen their faith.
