Wanted: Superheroes

Prairie City Community Vacation Bible School starts Sunday

Calling all superheroes, the Prairie City Community Vacation Bible School is looking for you. In partnership with the Prairie City United Methodist, Christian Reformed, First Reformed, Church of the Brethren and the Christian Church, Hero Central: Discovering Your Strength in God is welcomes children to fellowship, crafts, singing and a lot of fun.

“It’s so much fun to see kids from our community getting together, having a blast and worshiping God. Watching their excitement is such a blessing,” organizer Carrie Burns said.

VBS runs from 6 to 8:20 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and is open to children as young as four to those in fifth grade. The activities will take place at the Prairie City United Methodist Church, 706 W. McMurray St.

Along with the traditional crafts and songs well-known at Bible school, kids will get to take part in science experiments, games and get to eat tasty snacks all while learning about God through stories from the Bible.

Planning for the program is lead by Audra Hiebert, Carrie Burns and Laura Sorenson from the United Methodist Church. Dozens of volunteers will also give their time and talents to the eventful week serving as game, craft and experiment leaders as well as those behind the scenes providing support.

VBS is open to kids from all areas and is free to all participants.

Part of the program is also philanthropic with kids collecting items for the PCM Food Pantry. 

“It’s fun to see the kids compete to see which group can bring in the most donations,” Burns said.

For more information, contact the program organizers on the Facebook page at Prairie City Community VBS 2018.
