North Side Churches Offer Summer Bible School

Two more local churches are offering vacation Bible schools for young children this summer.

North Addison Baptist Church, 6120 N. Addison, will host “The Wild and Wonderful Good News Stampede” on July 14-18. The school will operate from 9 a.m. to noon each day and is open to all children ages 4 through the sixth grade.

The fun will begin with a pre-registration “rodeo” from 1 to 3 p.m. on July 12. The event will feature barrel racing, a greased “pig” race, “bull” riding, roping, sack races, and other games.

During the week, children will make crafts, sing songs, listen to Bible stories and play games. The week will wrap up with a closing roundup on July 18.
