"Athens" VBS June 4-7 in Wells

posted on May 13

A Vacation Bible School event called “Athens: Paul’s Dangerous Journey to Share the Truth” will be hosted at Open Doors United Methodist Church in Wells from Tuesday, June 4 to Friday, June 7. All children in the community, age 3 (potty-trained) through 5th grade, are invited.

Step back in time at Athens, exploring some of the adventures the Apostle Paul faced. Kids participate in a memorable Bible-times Marketplace, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, dig into Bible-times snacks, visit Paul, and collect Bible Memory Makers to remind them of God’s Word. Plus, everyone learns to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes at Celebration—a time of upbeat worship that gets everyone involved.

Kids at Athens VBS will reach out to needy families in Dominican Republic through their mission offering. Offerings will go to Solar Oven Partners UMC to purchase solar ovens, which UMC missionaries personally deliver and provide instruction for their use.

Athens will run from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. each day. There is a small fee of $5.00 per child; however, scholarships are available if requested. Registration forms can be downloaded from and are asked to be turned into the church office by May 20. For more information, call 507-553-5453. Athens VBS will be held at 595 1st Ave. SW in Wells, across from the water tower.

$5.00 per child. Scholarships available upon request.
