    This is the time of year when churches hold their annual week of intense, kid-focused Bible study.

    Children are on summer break, so churches can hold the sessions during the day. Or at night, like our church has done for many years, primarily to involve more members who have day jobs. And during the summer there’s no hurrying home to bathe and get to bed because there’s no school the next day.

    The Bible is the textbook for the week, with emphasis on stories about Jesus’ life or Old Testament heroes.
