VBS is this week

The faith communities of Trinity United Methodist Church, St. Richard Catholic Church and Faith Lutheran Church will sponsor a Community Vacation Bible School this week at St. Richard. Each day at “Bible Blast to the Past” children will be introduced to a Bible story and life focus. Bible time travelers will play games of biblical proportions, create colorful crafts and enjoy scrumptious snacks. But more importantly they will discover God’s constant love through the ages and forevermore. The program is open to all area children from preschool through sixth grade and is held from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Monday, June 22 through Friday, June 26.

There is no fee for the program; Children are just asked to bring in a free will offering each day as well as a canned good to be donated to the local food pantry at the end of the week.

Registration forms are available at www.saintrichard.org. Walk-in registrations will also be accepted. St. Richard Church located at 333 Brookside Dr. in Swanton. For more information call the parish office at 419-826-2791.
