St. Paul’s Episcopal Church has announced plans for Vacation Bible School, to be held in July.

“Our VBS is going to be held July 14-17 from 9 a.m. to noon,” said Lauren Gallagher. “The cost for each child is $15, which includes a T-shirt.”

Superheroes of the Bible will be the theme. “Ages 4 through children entering fifth grade are welcome,” Gallagher said.

Online registration for St. Paul’s VBS will start Tuesday at the church’s website – stpaulsnewnan.org. “Forms will also be available at St. Paul's,” Gallagher said.

Sharpsburg Baptist Church will be using the Agency D3 theme for Bible School, which has a detective motif. There will be a worship rally at headquarters following by a stop at the evidence vault for Bible study.

There will also be a break room for snacks, training ground for recreation, communications hub for music, a map room for missions and the lab for crafts. Sessions will be from June 23-27 from 6-9 p.m. A free dinner will be held at 5:30 p.m. each day for VBS participants.
