Easter VBS’ at Wellsburg church

The Wellsburg Community Vacation Bible School team will be offering a one-evening event called “Easter VBS” from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday at the Wellsburg United Methodist Church located on 11th and Charles Street, Wellsburg.

It is open to children ages 4 to 13 years old, but older teens can volunteer to help.

“This special vacation Bible school event will take children on a journey to prepare for Holy Week. Crafts, songs, skits, stories and more will help children learn about events leading up to Easter and the reasons we rejoice,” an event spokesperson said. “Food will be provided as well, so parents can have an evening off to relax and reflect on their own joys.”

Interested participants can obtain a form at any of the following nine Wellsburg churches that are hosting and staffing the event: Christ Episcopal, Community of Christ, First Baptist, First Presbyterian, New Day Christian Center, St. Johns Catholic, Wellsburg Christian, and Wellsburg and Franklin United Methodist churches.

They also can call and leave a message at (304)737-0488 or (304)829-4223 so organizers will know how much food to prepare. For information, contact any of the participating churches.
