Congregational Church Plans Olympics-Themed Vacation Bible School
Kids are invited to a week of active, adventurous fun at The Congregational Church of Needham’s Vacation Bible School program from Monday, Aug. 27 through Friday, Aug. 31, 8:30 a.m. to noon.
This year’s theme is “VBS Olympics: Join God’s Olympic Team to Change the World,” in which kids will create crafts, play exciting games, participate in meaningful community service, sing upbeat songs and enjoy delicious snacks.
Led by the church’s Youth Minister, the Rev. Jamie Green, kids, ages 3 years old to sixth grade, will learn how they can change the world by providing welcome, food, water, clothing, and care for all people. Each morning, all ages meet together for the Opening Ceremonies. Then kids split into teams by age and travel to different events, like art, story, cooking, service and games. At the end of each day, all kids come back together for the Closing Ceremony.
The fee is $15 per day for morning activities at VBS from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Lunch bunch will be offered from noon to 1 p.m. for $5 per day. Additional children in each family will receive a 50 percent discount. Register by Aug. 1 for a $10 discount. Scholarships are also available.
