VBS winds down for this year

The Daily Iowegian

---- — Vacation Bible School was held July 22-24 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at First United Methodist Church in Centerville. Each day approximately 70 children ranging from kindergarten through 6th grade attended VBS.

Approximately 20 volunteers from local churches came each day to teach and assist. The churches represented were: First United Methodist Church, St. Mary’s Catholic Church, First Evangelic Lutheran Church Elc, Drake Avenue Christian Church and First Presbyterian Church.

And each of the three days the children boarded a school bus to travel to Drake Avenue Christian Church to eat lunch at the summer lunch program.

At the close of VBS on Wednesday each child went home with a bag of school supplies and a personalized blessing.
