Plan now for Bible school

It’s June, and area churches are gearing up for vacation Bible school. The first sessions are approaching, so now is the time to make plans. Some sessions fill up, so it’s always a good idea to register early.

• The Spokane Valley United Methodist Church will host “Operation Overboard: Dare to go Deep With God” on June 18-22. Classes will be daily from 9 a.m. to noon for children age 4 through the fifth grade. The activities will include Bible study, water science, crafts and music.

The registration deadline is June 15. Forms are available online at or at the church, 115 N. Raymond Road.

Information: (509) 924-7262

• St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 304 S. Adams Road, will host a tri-parish vacation Bible school with the congregations of the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection and Advent Lutheran on June 18-21. Classes for kids age 4 through the fifth grade will be offered daily from 9 a.m. to noon. The cost is $15 for the first and second child and each additional child is free if registered by June 12.
