Church News: July 13

First Presbyterian holding VBS

ANDERSON — "Everywhere Fun Fair" is the theme for First Presbyterian’s Vacation Bible school this year. Beginning Monday, July 15, and running through Friday from 2 to 4:30 p.m., it’s a global celebration with the look and feel of a world’s fair. Children will make friends with neighbors around the world and discover that God’s love can be found everywhere, including their own neighborhoods.

This year the church is partnering with the Church Upon the Rock congregation. Children K-6 are welcome for Vacation Bible School at First Presbyterian, 230 W. Ninth St.

Tabor Church invites children to Kingdom Rock

DALEVILLE — A summer kids’ event called "Kingdom Rock" will be hosted by Tabor Church at the Daleville Elementary School 4-H Pavilion from July 23-26. At Kingdom Rock, kids participate in Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and dig into treats, experience Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them to stand strong, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long.

Each day concludes with Fanfare Finale — a celebration that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. Kids at Kingdom Rock will join a missions effort, raising funds for Mahalia Pa Maisha, a ministry in Kenya, Africa. Kingdom Rock is for kids age 4 through 11 and will run from 6:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. each day.

For more information, call (765) 759-5304 or e-mail amyjo310@att.net.

  • Davis, Verna mug Verna Davis: Got a song stuck in your head? Just surrender Ever have a song stuck in your head? You find yourself thinking about the song at random times during the day. Or humming the song at odd times during the day. Or worse yet, when stopped at a traffic signal you find yourself belting it out only to realize that even with the windows rolled up, the person in the car beside you can hear your not-so-musical rendition.

  • Davis, Verna mug Verna Davis: Peace is worth fighting for Some people say they know how to find peace. We should “simply” follow our hearts, search for meaning in our lives, and fulfill our dreams. Sad to say, those things may bring us a bit of satisfaction, but they certainly don’t bring us peace.
