If you’re like most parents, summertime Vacation Bible School means dropping the kids off for morning or evening classes at a neighborhood church for Christian teaching, healthy fun and snacks, and wholesome interaction. Well, Shannon Oaks Church plans to broaden the ‘playing field’ this summer! Kids are not only invited to Bible School, but Moms, Dads and even the grandparents are definitely part of the curriculum! According to Children’s Minister Josh Whitlock, the Bible plainly states the family’s responsibility for taking the lead in their children’s spiritual instruction. So, for Family Vacation Bible School at Shannon Oaks Church, theme and activities for each evening’s Bible School…Monday July 15 through Thursday July 18…will be for every member of the family and for all ages. Crafts, music, games and study will be designed for family participation. Additionally, youngsters in sixth grade and older can opt to be “volunteers” and assist others during the four nights of classes classes, to be held from 5:45 pm until 8:15 pm.
According to Whitlock, a cost of $15 per family will include a pass to Splash Kingdom and a T-shirt to wear at VBS. Free childcare will be offered for children age 3 and younger. On the final evening, families can enjoy all-you-can-eat snow cones, bouncehouses and water slides. Want to register your family? Go to shannonoakschurch.com. Haven’t got family here?
