Vacation bible school returns next week

Week-long program run by volunteers

For the past 4 years Carla Collie and Christina Dieleman have been coordinating a Vacation Bible School program for the kids of the Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs area.

Workign with a team of about 40 volunteers, they are able to offer the program to roughly 100 kids each summer.

“We teach them about God through great songs, fun games, wonderful crafts and of course interesting Bible stories,” Dieleman says. “We even enjoy a delicious snack that relates to the Bible story of the day.”

This summer, the theme of the program is Panamania,  Where God is Wild about You!. The theme is based on Psalm 139.

Vacatio Bible School will be held at the Agassiz Christian School at 7571 Morrow Rd. from July 11-15, and runs from 9:30 a.m to 11:30 a.m. each day.

Kids ages three through to finished Grade 5 are welcome to join in.

“We will take you to a place where pandas surround you in a bamboo forest of learning about God’s love for you,” she says. “Exciting Bible buddies will join you in your journey as the days go by.”

For more information or to pre-register your child call either Carla Collie at 604-796-2488 or Christina Dieleman at 604-796-3473.
