Heartland church helping kids discover, decide, defend

The First Baptist Church in Kirksville is holding their annual Vacation Bible School this week.

Vacation Bible School season continues throughout Heartland churches.

The First Baptist Church in Kirksville is now holding their annual VBS this week.

This year's theme is "Agency 3D: Discover, Decide, Defend."

Students will participate in activities such as bible study and crafts. There is even some music and singing to go along.

Organizers just want the kids to have fun as they play the role of undercover agents to break the code and find the truth.

"God loves them. There's more to life than what they have right here. God wants them to love others," said said Missions Committee Chair Sherie Eklof.

The vacation bible school will be from 5:45 through 8:30 p.m. from now through Friday. It's open to kids from pre-school through fifth grade.

Registration is still open and transportation will be available. Supper will be served during the bible school. Call 660-627-2273 for more information.
