With summer in full swing, many area churches are looking to offer activities that offer faith-based fun for children and other activities to bring the community together.
Several area churches have announced vacation Bible school activities and another has plans for a splashing good time during a pool party:
Come sail away with Living Faith
Activities and biblical lessons will provide kids with information on how Jesus rescues them during a program at Living Faith Church.
The Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus vacation Bible school is open to children ages 3 through 12. They will participate in Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play team-building games and make their own treats. The event is Sunday, July 22 through Friday, July 26 from 6-8:30 p.m. at the church, 1611 Diagonal Blvd., Hermiston. Each day winds down at 8 p.m. with the Sail Away Send-off that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. Friends and family are encouraged to participate.
Also, a penny offering will be taken each night. Part of the proceeds will go toward Hermiston’s Family Promise mentoring program that helps students and families in crises.
