Natchitoches’ First United Methodist Church will be a bit more lively each evening this week as 140 “Amped” children sing, dance and learn as they attend Vacation Bible School at the church June 18-22. The VBS, held 5:30-8 pm each evening at the church at 411 Second St. is for children from pre-school through 5th grade.
The VBS includes games, crafts and learning as the children learn Bible stories in a fun filled atmosphere. This FUMC’s VBS has traditionally featured a service project for the children to participate in helping children living in other areas of the country and world. This year’s project is “Chicken and Egg.” The project will raise funds for disaster stricken areas of Haiti. The funds will be used to bring supply chickens for families there who will then be able to sell the eggs to help keep their children in school.
While this year’s VBS is full to capacity, the FUMC family is looking forward to welcoming another group of children at next year’s VBS!
