Church Under Fire for Inviting Kids to Vacation Bible School

A Baptist church in New York City is facing backlash after they passed out flyers inviting children from a nearby public school to attend Vacation Bible School. Some neighborhood parents accused the church of being discriminatory because they oppose gay marriage.

The Vacation Bible School was hosted by Sixth Avenue Baptist Church – a week-long event featuring songs, games, arts & crafts and Bible stories. They were assisted in the event by a youth group from South Carolina that was in New York City doing missionary work.

Local parents became outraged when three members of the visiting mission team handed students promotional flyers inviting them to attend the church event.
