PARTICIPANTS IN Vacation Bible School at the Evangelical Free Church last week end the day singing a song about the theme 'Sky' and always trusting in God.

MORE CHILDREN attended Vacation Bible School at the Terrace Evangelical Free Church last week than the previous year.

About 190 children took part each of the five afternoons that it ran, going in groups to different stations for a number of activities and coming together at the end of each day to review what they’d learned and done.

The week-long event was for children age five to 10-years-old with former participants coming back to help out.

Some grandmothers and grandfathers came out to help too.

This year’s theme was “Sky” and the children got to imagine what it would be like to bounce among the clouds, soar with eagles and reach for the stars and that in every experience, they can trust God.
