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!
- Simply choose one location as our storytellers rotate.
- Each presentation is 45 minutes.
- Each child receives a FREE beautiful Children’s Bible, while supplies last!
- Caregivers must remain with the children they bring.
- These are FREE EVENTS!
In late May and June each year, 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.
- Children’s Bibles that retail for approximately $20.00 are also available to each child who would like one, while supplies last. Children will also learn a patriotic song and a Bible verse.
- This series is sponsored entirely by America’s Great Stories, a non-denominational and all-volunteer ministry based in Lincoln. This summer marks our 18th 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!
