Rock Church VBS features medieval fighters

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Some local Quincy Kids took a trip back to the medieval times Friday night.

As part of The Rock Church's Vacation Bible School, children and their parents got to see professional medieval fighting group in action.

The medieval re-enactors practiced their jousting and showcased their expert fighting skills, all in the name of education.

Officials with the Church say because the theme of this year's VBS is "Kingdom Rock", they thought bringing in medieval re-enactors would make learning about the era, more interesting.

"Vacation Bible is all about God, so we thought we'd throw in a little history along with it, to just give them an idea of what things were like back in the middle ages as far as fighting," said Thomas Landwehr.

Re-enactors with the "Ivory Keep" fighting group are from all over the tri-states including New London, Quincy and even Hannibal.
