CHILLIWACK, B.C.—Children at Crossroads Community Church may not be able to attend Vacation Bible School this summer, but they can still have a VBS experience, as the congregation is hosting a virtual VBS program—“Sharing the story of Christ”—from July 20 to 24. “This program is aimed at kids in preschool to Grade 5, but is open to anyone who's interested,” say organizers. “Since this program is all done online, families can participate from any location.” Crossroads is providing everything needed to enjoy VBS from the comfort of home or cottage, including videos, songs, science experiments and daily Zoom meetings to encourage interaction and fun. Families are asked to pay a modest fee and pick up supply kits at the church. To learn more or to register (by July 10), visit bit.ly/virtual-vbs.
