Workshop of Wonders Bible School

Bible School – First United Methodist

GREENVILLE – The First United Methodist Church on the corner of Sycamore St. and Fourth St. in Greenville invites all children to gear up at “Workshop of Wonders: Imagine and Build With God “ Vacation Bible School on July 20-25, 6-8:30 p.m. A light meal will be provided for participants and volunteers each evening.

Come, explore and experience how the ordinary becomes extraordinary with God! At the “Workshop of Wonders: Imagine and Build With God” children will discover how the ordinary becomes extraordinary with God, meet people from the Bible who used materials on hand to make something amazing with God, experience the love of Jesus as they hear his message to expect great things with God and explore how to use their hearts, minds and imaginations to follow the example of God the one who really does work wonders.  “Workshop of Wonders” is designed to introduce children to a deeper relationship with God through Jesus Christ.  Each activity is developed, tested, and refined to be an engaging, age-appropriate experience that brings the word of God alive to every participant and volunteer.  “Workshop of Wonders” is based on the Bible and the gospel of the living Christ.

Vacation Bible School isn’t just about fun and games however. This year the children will have the opportunity to team up with the rest of the church in an international mission effort called “Imagine No Malaria.”  Through our gifts to” Imagine No Malaria” we are working to help eliminate deaths from malaria in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The fun begins at 6 p.m. on July 20, with a light meal each evening, and concludes July 25 with dinner and a program for all VBS participants, families, and friends.

Children preschool to those who have completed fourth grade are invited to the adventure that  includes music that will wow your ears, interactive Bible fun, super science, cool crafts, hands-on mission work, delicious food, great games and much more!  Parents and caregivers are also invited to join in the Workshop of Wonders PBS – Parents’ Bible School – while their children are enjoying VBS! This adult group will be facilitated by Pastor Angela Meeks. To be a part of all the excitement at “Workshop of Wonders: Imagine and Build With God” and to pre-register call 548-3075 or email gofumc@woh.rr.com or visit  cokesburyvbs.com/greenvillefirstumc.

The mission of First United Methodist Church is to make disciples who share God’s love with all people and minister to their needs.  A member of the West Ohio Conference of United Methodist Churches, the church offers a traditional worship service at 9:30 am with Children’s Church provided, a nursery provided, Sunday School classes for all ages and a contemporary worship service at 11 a.m.
