Parents can take their children to a safe, religious environment during postwide vacation Bible school from 9 a.m. to noon Monday through June 14 at Comanche Chapel.

The four-day course, themed “Kingdom Rock: Where Kids Stand Strong for God,” is open to prekindergarten through sixth-grade students. Children older than sixth grade are encouraged to volunteer as part of a leadership training program, said Stacey Wilson, religious education coordinator for the chapel.

“We do it every summer right when the kids get out of school,” she said. “A lot of parents look forward to it.”

Wilson said the event gives children an opportunity to learn about Christianity in a fun and safe environment with activities such as puppet shows, singing and crafts.

Last year, more than 400 children attended the free school.

“They’re going to learn a lot about the gospel of Jesus Christ,” Wilson said. “It’s a spiritual environment ... open to any religion or any faith.”

Wilson said she’s had many families join the chapel after attending the school.

“A lot of the children, they go back home and share with their parents,” she said. “You don’t have to have a strong religious background. It’s something we like to offer (to people) outside of the chapel.”
