Do you want to provide outstanding, God-honoring role models to your elementary-aged children or grandchildren this summer? Then bring them to America’s Great Stories!

Each June, the America’s Great Stories series inspires hundreds of elementary-aged children by portraying four American leaders who loved God and served their fellow man. Presentations are historically accurate, kid-friendly, and inspiring.

The free, 45-minute-long sessions take place at these locations and times in June:

THURSDAYS, JUNE 1, 8, 15, and 22.

7:00 p.m. at the NEW City Impact Center
(Located at 1035 North 33rd Street.)

FRIDAYS, JUNE 2, 9, 16, and 23.

10:15 a.m. OR 11:00 a.m. at Scott Middle School
(Located at 2200 Pine Lake Road. Please park in the back and follow signs.)

1:15 p.m. OR 2:00 p.m. at Morley Elementary School
(Located at 6800 Monterey Drive. Please park in the east lot and follow signs.)

The 1:15 session at Morley is full (due to group reservations). We welcome you to the 2:00 presentation there!

Simply choose one location because storytellers rotate. Caregivers must remain with the children they bring—adults enjoy the time-honored tradition of storytelling, too!

Children’s Bibles that retail for approximately $20.00 are also available to each child (or family) who would like one, while supplies last. Children will also learn a patriotic song and a Bible verse.

Reservations are recommended for groups of 10 or more: please call Terri Heckman at 402-421-7142.

This series is sponsored entirely by America’s Great Stories, a non-denominational and all-volunteer ministry based in Lincoln. This summer marks its 16th year of storytelling.

We enthusiastically invite you and your children to attend this year’s storytelling program! Invite your friends and neighbors to come, too!
