Vacation Bible schools starting

Two more vacation Bible schools start at local churches this week.

"SonTreasure Island" is the theme for those at Bethany Bible Church, 654 Wilburton Road (across from Mount Carmel Estates). The program runs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday for children ages four through sixth grade. Transportation is available.

Oak Grove United Methodist Church invites children ages 4 to 12 to "Weird Animals: Where Jesus' Love is One-of-a-Kind," from 6 to 8:20 p.m. Monday through Friday. Children will learn about some of God's most creative creations as they participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games and test out "sciency fun gizmos" they'll take home. Each day concludes with The Tail End, a celebration that gets everyone involved in living what they've learned. Family members and friends are encouraged to join in daily for this special time at 8 p.m.

Kids at Weird Animals VBS will join an international mission effort to share God's love by providing water for school children in India.

Closing program is 9 a.m. Sunday, with a continental breakfast to follow.
