All kids entering kindergarten through sixth grade are invited to three days of lively fun and learning at the 11th Annual Multi-Church Vacation Bible School from 12:30 to 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, July 8-10, at Springs of Living Water Free Methodist Church , 6957 LaBrosse Hill Street, Bonners Ferry.

After the Wednesday closing, parents and friends are invited to a program by the kids, with refreshments.

Join old friends and new friends for three action-packed days of Bible lessons, games, crafts, music and songs, discovery and science and snacks.

This year’s theme is “Jesus Loves the Little Children” as we learn more about children from around the world and how they are precious, loved and honored in God’s sight.

Troy Roberts will be one of the many talented instructors with his Monday segment on “Jesus and Buddha.”

Troy, his wife Cora and their three kids are home from Northern Thailand for a short summer visit before returning to Chiang Rai International Christian School, where both are teachers and Troy is also secondary principal.

After graduating from Bonners Ferry High School, Troy and Cora have experienced many different cultures, from teaching in an isolated village in Alaska for many years, to their current 10 years of teaching at an international Christian school in Thailand, giving them first hand opportunities to witness God’s love for all the children of the world.

Early registration at Springs of Living Water Church, Trinity Lutheran Church or United Methodist Church—or the Hair Connection downtown—will help avoid long lines –but you may also register on Monday, starting at 11:30 am.
