Upcoming Vacation Bible schools set

The following vacation Bible school sessions are planned locally:

This week

• Harvest Community Church, 17285 C.R. 34, Goshen, will be the site of SonWest Roundup vacation Bible school Monday through Friday.

“Participants will discover an old town where the excitement of the Wild West awaits,” according to organziers. Children will celebrate being buckaroos. There will be food, games, music, crafts and true stories that point children toward God.

Children at SonWest will also be collecting donations to purchase school supplies for orphans in Dondo, Mozambique, Africa. Harvest directly supports an orphanage there.

To participate, children must be 4 years old through fifth grade. Hours will be 9:30 a.m. to noon every day.

There will be a kick-off cook out at 5:30 p.m. Sunday. Hot dogs and s’mores will be served around a campfire. Children can also enjoy a pony ride, sing campfire songs and hear camp stories while their parents register them for vacation Bible school.

The final jamboree of the week will be at 10 a.m. July 14.

Parents can register their children in advance online at www.hccgoshen.org or by phone at 543-3528.

The event is free and families do not need to be members of Harvest Community Church to participate.

July 15-19

• Dunlap United Methodist Church, 23674 U.S. 33, Elkhart, will be the site of “God’s Wonderful World” VBS July 15-19 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. There will be storytelling, games, music, videos and arts and crafts. Register at the church office or call 875-7950.

July 14-19

• Riverview Mennonite Church, White Pigeon, Mich., be the site of a summer vacation Bible school event called “Athens: Paul’s Dangerous Journey to Share the Truth” July 14-19.

“Children step back in time at Athens, exploring some of the adventures Paul faced,” according to organizers. “Kids and leaders participate in a memorable Bible-times Marketplace, sing songs, play teamwork-building games, dig into Bible-times snacks, visit Daniel and collect Bible Memory Makers to remind them of God’s Word. Plus, everyone learns to look for evidence of God all around them through something called ‘God Sightings.’ Each day concludes at Celebration — a time of upbeat worship that gets everyone involved.”

A meal will be served from 5:50 to 6:20 p.m. “Athens” will run from 6:30 to 8:45 p.m. each day. Transportation is available. For more information, call 269-483-2067 or 260-336-3210.
