Description: GRACE COMMUNITY CHURCH INVITES FAMILIES TO ATHENS VBS

A summer family event called “Athens: Paul’s Dangerous Journey to Share the Truth” will be hosted at Grace Community Church in Altavista. Families step back in time at Athens, exploring some of the adventures the Apostle Paul faced. Kids ages 4-12 participate in a memorable Bible-times Marketplace, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, dig into Bible-times snacks, visit Paul, and collect Bible Memory Makers to remind them of God’s Word. Plus, everyone learns to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes at Celebration—a time of upbeat worship that gets everyone involved.

Athens will run from 6 to 9 PM, Monday, August 5th through Friday, August 9th. at Grace Community Church, 911 Grace Avenue, Altavista. Turn on Ninth Street, across from Altavista High School.
