3. Marco Church invites children to ‘Roar VBS’

A summer kids’ event called Roar VBS will be hosted at Marco Church from July 29 to Aug. 2.


At Roar, kids discover that "God is good even when life get wild! Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Wild Bible Adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long." 

Each day concludes with the Safari Celebration that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. Kids at Roar VBS will join a missions effort to provide nutrition packets and health checkups for moms and babies in need in Zambia, Africa.

Roar is for kids from K through five and will start with a free dinner at 5:30 p.m. and then VBS will run from 6 to 8 p.m. each day. To register your child for the week, go to www.marcochurch.com.
