Summer in Mexia a time for vacation Bible school
By Roxanne McKnight
St. Luke United Methodist Church, of Mexia, revived its vacation Bible school this summer after a hiatus of many years.
Vacation Bible school, a common activity in Christian churches, usually consists of four or five days of fun activities with a religious theme held during the summer months for children from kindergarten through at least fifth grade, if not higher.
St. Luke UMC held its VBS last week, Monday through Friday, July 22-26, with the help of volunteers from the congregation: teachers Mary Burns, Lavonda McCrary, Darron Collins and Jackie Smith; and aides Rosie Durham, Brittney Jones, Mariyah Wiley and Myron Thompson.
