The Belfast United Methodist Church, 23 Mill Lane in Belfast, invites children of all ages to this year’s Vacation Bible School, Pandamania, where God is wild about you!

The event will run from Monday, July 18, through Thursday, July 21, from 5-7:30 p.m. This is an intergenerational event where parents, grandparents, friends and neighbors are welcome to join the young folk in the adventure.

Each evening starts with a light supper at 5 p.m. At 5:30 p.m., the fun and adventure begins! Participants will explore the bamboo forest, filled with crazy pandas, as they discover that God loves us.

Participants will also take part in Bible learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, dig into yummy treats, experience electrifying Bible adventures, and create crafts they’ll take home and play with all summer long.

Kids, young and not so young, will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called “God Sightings”. Each day concludes with a “Rowdy Round-Up”, a celebration where everyone gets involved in living what they have learned. Family members and friends (very important pandas) are encouraged to join in this special time daily.

Pre-registration is encouraged, but not necessary to participate. Pre-register by calling the church office at 338-5575 on Thursday, July 14 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. or simply register at the church between 4:30-5 p.m. on Monday, July 18.
