Marketplace VBS will be an interactive time with costumed adult members creating a Bible town with activities for the children to hear about Jesus in “Bible Times.” Children will be issued Bible type costumes at the door so they will fit right in with the Bible village characters. It will take place July 21-24. Any fisherman who has some frozen fish they would like to donate for use during the VBS, please call the church office at 580-255-0467. It would be greatly appreciated.
- Elk Avenue Church of Christ
The Elk Avenue Church of Christ has set its annual Summer Urban Children’s & Family Camp for July 8-12 with 7 p.m. evening sessions in the church’s Activity Building. This summer’s camp theme is Children of Promise (2 Corinthians 1:20).
The camp is family centered with Bible instruction, singing, and related activities for children of all ages. Craft time each evening will be hands-on projects for children with parents, grandparents, or other adults. The sessions will be informal, using resources, object lessons, and interactive exercises designed for children’s continued spiritual training at home by parents and grandparents.
This is why it is a family camp, one that encourages parents and grandparents to bring and participate with their children. Sessions will be from 7–8:45 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday with Friday evening being a Family Fun Time. For information about registration, call the church office at 580-252-3185.
