Children invited to explore world cultures at WAUMC vacation Bible school

Aug. 4, 2014

Children, ages 3 through third grade, are invited to explore different cultures and learn how God’s love is shared around the world at the Everywhere Fun Fair vacation Bible school at Wauwatosa Avenue United Methodist Church, 1529 Wauwatosa Ave., Thursday, Aug. 14 and Friday, Aug. 15 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 16 from 9 – 11 a.m. VBS participants will share their world’s fair experience during the 9:45 a.m. worship service on Sunday, Aug. 17.

The cost is $10 per child with a family maximum of $20.

Everyone is invited to join in the fun – families do not have to be members of WAUMC. Please visit the church website for a list of parking options and map of the area.

Everywhere Fun Fair takes children on a global celebration. Youngsters will make friends with neighbors around the world and discover that God’s love can be found everywhere, including their own neighborhoods. They will be introduced to special places from all over the world and discover that we are all neighbors and all children of God.

The world’s fair atmosphere offers exciting attractions, such as interactive Bible storytelling, global games, rockin’ music, super science, cool crafts, and more!

Make the fun last with an Everywhere Fun Fair CD ROM at a cost of $4.50. It includes songs and five computer games to help children of all ages remember their VBS experience.
