VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL INFORMATION


HENDERSON COUNTY CHURCHES UNITING JOIN FOR FREE VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL JUNE 15 THROUGH 18 FROM 9:00 A.M. TO NOON EACH DAY, TRINITY PRESBYTERIAN

Henderson County Churches Uniting (First United Methodist Church, First Congregational United Church of Christ, Trinity Presbyterian, Grace Lutheran, Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, Providence Baptist and St. James Episcopal) will again sponsor Vacation Bible School (VBS) this summer on June 15 through 18 from 9:00 a.m. to Noon each day. VBS is a no-cost ministry sponsored by the participating churches. It is open to children who will be 4 years of age by August 31, 2015 through completion of 5th grade by June 2015. Registration begins May 7 and ends June 9, at any of the five participating churches or online at: http://bit.ly/discoveryvbs. Each church will also have a supply of VBS music CDs for each registrant – one per family - when completed applications are received.

Trinity Presbyterian, located at 900 Blythe Street in Hendersonville, will host this year’s VBS, and the theme is Camp Discovery. At Camp Discovery, kids will have fun as they explore the Bible, make new friends, sing songs, and learn how Jesus works through them in their everyday lives. Campers discover five Bible truths that excite and challenge them, and they learn the wisdom and the courage to step out in faith and serve—whether they’re at school, playing with friends, or helping out at home. As in the past, children in VBS will be encouraged to bring a daily offering which will benefit the Henderson County Boys and Girls Club. On Thursday, the final day of VBS, children should bring their own picnic lunch and a water slide and ice cream will be provided from noon to 1:00 p.m.

 Adult and teen volunteers are needed and can register at the VBS website noted above or contact Jill Wingard (Grace Lutheran Children and Family Ministry Director), VBS Volunteer Coordinator, 828-693-4890 ext.344. Teen volunteers must be rising 7th graders and older, and will need to complete a medical release form. During VBS week, nursery care will be provided for children of volunteers only. For further information call any of the participating churches.
