Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School will be held June 23 at 6 p.m. at Cynthiana Baptist Church
In a world that is always searching for “the next big thing,” some things never change and can never be improved upon. God, His Word, His Promises, and the Gospel will always remain unchanged and that is why we choose to Kick it Old School. We will reinforce this concept through an 80’s “old school” rock and roll concert environment.
We will meet Sunday, June 23 through Tuesday, June 25 from 6-8:15 p.m., followed by the Watoto Children’s Choir performance on Wednesday, June 26. Be sure to mark your calendars.
Online registration is now open for kids age 3 - 4th grade. You can find its link on the Cynthiana Baptist Church Kids Ministry facebook page.
Transportation will be available to children living in town.
