It is time for Vacation Bible School. Each year a new theme is introduced. The two most popular ones this year are Kingdom Rock and Colossal Coaster World. Regardless of the theme, Vacation Bible School is a Bible-learning experience with team building games, cool music and tasty treats with activities that help faith flow into real life. All the churches ask that registration is made now so that they will know how many children to prepare for. Ages range from kindergarten (about four years of age) through fifth grade.
