Vacation Bible School set for next week


Pagosa Springs Church of Christ

Include Vacation Bible School (VBS) at the Pagosa Springs Church of Christ in your plans next week. The annual free VBS at the church, located at 277 Lewis St., runs Monday through Wednesday, July 18-20, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. 

The youth group from Woodward, Okla., is returning to help with the three-day VBS and work together with the Pagosa Springs church.

The theme for VBS is “Growing With The Savior.” Students journey each day with Jesus as they study Bible stories from the gospels. Character traits in which children will be encouraged to grow include faith, hope and love. Bible stories and character building come to life with acting, puppets, games, quizzes, songs and crafts. Each child is actively engaged and encouraged as they learn great lessons throughout the VBS. Refreshments are served daily. 

VBS concludes on Wednesday with a hot dog picnic at the park on 8th Street. Parents, family and friends are invited to those activities as well as being encouraged to visit the daily classes at any time. On Wednesday evening, the children put on a program demonstrating things they have learned in VBS. At the end of the program, there will be an opportunity for you to visit the children’s classrooms and meet their teachers. 

Transportation to VBS is provided if your children need a ride. To arrange for the pickup of your children at the stop nearest you, or for more information, call the church office at (970) 264-2552.

We would be delighted for your children to attend the free VBS. Enrollment forms may be found in the paper or will be available the morning VBS begins. Call the office now and leave a message to sign up your children so they can attend this exciting time of learning and growing.
