Vacation Bible School

Registration is now open for Vacation Bible School, to be offered from 9:00 a.m. until noon, Monday July 31 through Friday, August 4, in Colhoun A. This year’s theme is Rome: Paul and the Underground Church. Guided by St. Paul, children will explore a crowded Roman marketplace, tiptoe past watchful Roman guards, encourage first-century Christians who meet in a dark cave, race chariots and make daily discoveries about God’s love.
