Vacation Bible School in Agassiz free

VBS plans to support food bank through donations

Agassiz summer program is free for children to attend

The Vacation Bible School is once again being offered to kids in the Agassiz Christian School.

This year’s VBS program is called Kingdom Rock where Kids stand Strong for God. The program is offered July 22-26 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and includes great music, Bible stories, craft/experiment, snack, DVD time and games.

There is no fee, and the program is open to children aged three, up to the end of Grade 5.

In the past, the program has hosted about 100 kids, with the help of 40 volunteers. Last year, the organizers took an offering for the local food bank, delivering money and seven full cloth grocery bags.

They are planning again support the food bank again this year. To pre-register your child, or for more information, call Carla at 604-796-2488 or Christina at 604-796-3473.
