First Church of Christ invites families to Athens VBS

A summer family event called “Athens: Paul’s Dangerous Journey to Share the Truth” will be hosted June 9-13 at First Church of Christ, 300 Main St. in Elkins.

Families step back in time at Athens, exploring some of the adventures the Apostle Paul faced. Kids and adults participate in a memorable Bible-times marketplace, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, dig into Bible-times snacks and visit Paul. Each day concludes at Celebration, a time of upbeat worship that gets everyone involved.

Kids and adults at Athens VBS will join nearly a million participants reaching out to needy kids through a hands-on mission project called Lifeline in which families will send peanut butter and offering to children in Haiti and Honduras.

Athens will run from 6 to 8:30 p.m. each day. For more information or transportation, call 304-636-1590 or 304-636-1654.
