The community vacation Bible school will be different this year due to COVID-19. VBS will be hosted by the St. Paul United Church with the topic, “VBS in a Box.”  Families can pick up the boxes and do the lessons and projects together at home.  They will need to know how many wish to participate and the number and ages of the children. The church would like to have the information by June 30 so that supplies can be ready. A date will be announced later when the boxes can be picked up.
