Vacation Bible school planned

Staff report

PIQUA — Upper Valley Community Church will be holding its vacation Bible adventure and Sunday funday for children and their families.

At Maker Fun Factory vacation Bible School, planned for July 16-20, children will discover not only that God made them the way they are, but for a purpose too. Maker Fun Factory is filled with Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun Gizmos, team-building games, Bible songs and treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.

Children will discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life — something called God Sightings. The children will also have the opportunity to participate in a missions project by donating pennies and change that will let the kids in the local community show God’s love to needy villages in Honduras.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for walk up registration. The program ends at 8 p.m. for 3 year-olds and 8:30 for 4 year-olds to grade 5.
