MANCHESTER - A vacation bible school (VBS) called "Athens: Paul's Dangerous Journey to Share the Truth" will be hosted at Zion Episcopal Church from July 22 - 26. Children step back in time at Athens, exploring some of the adventures the Apostle Paul faced. Kids participate in a memorable Bible-times Marketplace, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, dig into Bible-times snacks, visit Paul, and collect Bible Memory Makers to remind them of God's Word. Plus, everyone learns to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes at Celebration, a time of upbeat worship that gets everyone involved.

Kids at Athens VBS will join nearly a million participants reaching out to kids through a hands-on mission project called Operation Kid-to-Kid, in which families will send photos and personalized Bible coloring books to children in India. Athens will run from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. each day. For more information, call 802-362-1987 or email office@zion
