Age 4 — completed 6th grade

Co-sponsored by First United Methodist Church of Clarion
and First Presbyterian Church of Clarion 

 First United Methodist Church and First Presbyterian Church invite children to participate in an exciting week of Vacation Bible School (VBS).  During this event our youth will explore Bible stories, do fun activities, sing inspirational songs, play games, and eat delicious snacks!  Children four years old through completed sixth grade are invited to share in all the fun.  Classes are formed based on grade completed during the 2016-2017 school year.  Join us at 9:00am each morning in the sanctuary of
First United Methodist Church as we begin our day with a gathering time for all ages.  The daily activities will end in the sanctuary at which time children may be picked up at 12:00pm.

Everyone is asked to enter the church through the main entrance just off  the parking lot.
At the top of the stairs, you will find sign-in sheets for your children.
VBS staff will be available to assist you as needed.
Please repeat this process for signing children out when you pick up your children.
Thank you for assisting us in caring for your child(ren)’s safety.

This year the VBS mission will be collecting food items
Family Friendship Bags (sponsored by 
Clarion-Limestone PTO).
This local program provides 
nutritious food items on the weekends
to children in the C-L School District.
Children are asked to bring the following items to VBS:

Monday - Boxes of instant oatmeal packets
Tuesday - Microwavable macaroni and cheese cups
Wednesday - Canned meat and pasta meals (e.g., SpaghettiOs)
Thursday - Granola bars or individually packaged snack crackers
Friday - Individual serving fruit cups

On Friday, June 16, family and friends are invited to a Closing Celebration and hot dog lunch.
Join us in the sanctuary at 11:45am to watch as the children share what they have learned
through the week and then enjoy a quick hot dog lunch in the Dining Room!

On Sunday morning, June 18, the VBS children will be singing in the worship services at both churches.  Children will meet at First Presbyterian’s social hall at 9:45am.  They will sing at the 10:00am worship service, eat a snack, walk to First United Methodist Church and sing at the 11:00am worship service.  Children may be picked up in the Gathering Room of the First United Methodist Church at approximately 11:15am.
