For the Miami Valley Today
PIQUA — The Valley Church, located at 1400 Seidel Parkway in Piqua, is inviting children to come and make waves at their Making Waves Vacation Bible Adventure that will be held from Sunday, July 17, through Wednesday, July 20, from 6-8 p.m.
Paula Monnin, the Family Ministry Director at the Valley, stated, “This is a community event, and everyone’s invited. It’s just going to be a lot of fun. We’ll learn about Jesus and have a whole lot of fun doing it.”
Children who are three years old and toilet trained through those who have completed fifth grade are welcome to attend this year’s Bible Adventure.
Make Waves is the theme this summer. Waves are powerful. They make an impact. According to church officials, “The kids will learn that God is powerful and the way they live can impact the world around them.” The Bible verse for the week is “Lord, you are more powerful than the roar of the ocean. You are stronger than the waves of the sea,” taken from Psalm 93:4.
The Making Waves Vacation Bible Adventure will do something special each night, beginning with Sunday night, July 17, which will be hat night, and children are invited to wear their favorite or crazy hat. Monday night is invite a friend night, and children will be asked to invite a friend to the Bible Adventure with them, and they are encouraged to invite friends every night. Tuesday is crazy hair night, and children should come with their hair in a funny style or they can put color in their hair – with Mom and Dad’s permission, of course! Wednesday night is popsicle night. Sunday will be “Fun Day,” and children in attendance at church that Sunday will get to enjoy cotton candy in cones. Most importantly, every night they will be learning who Jesus is and what he wants to do in their lives!
There will also be a mission project benefitting the Bethany Center in Piqua called Quarters for Kids. All of the money brought in will go to provide food for kids packs.
There will be crafts, games, real stories from the Bible, and a foam machine and water games. There will also be snacks each night.
