Hopewell United Methodist Church in Tyrone will be holding a “Living Inside Out” Vacation Bible School from June 16-19. Sessions will be from 9 a.m.-noon.

Registration is currently being accepted online at www.hopewell-umg.org for ages 5-11 years. “Living Inside Out” T-shirts may be purchased for $5 each at the church.
