Los Alamos First United Methodist Church’s Vacation Bible School will not be a run-of-the-mill classroom lecture.

Rather than sitting at desks, the Bible school is turning learning about Christianity into a game.

In fact, the theme for the Vacation Bible School is Studio Go Theme Show.

Camille Westcott, organizer for the Vacation Bible School, explained each day the program will start and end with a game-show and students will have the opportunity to compete in the game and win prizes.

In addition to the games, participants will create crafts, have snacks, produce dramatic presentations and do service activities.

Westcott said every day a speaker will come in and explain how they help people. For instance, a firefighter is planned to speak to students and in turn, young people will make treats for the fire station.

Additionally, she said a penny campaign will be held.

By contributing a small amount of change, students will be able to see how their small contribution can make a big difference.

While many local churches are hosting Vacation Bible Schools during the summer, Westcott said this one is special.  

“I think what is special about this Vacation Bible School is in addition to learning Bible verses and doing activities, they learn how to live a Christian life,” she said.

The Vacation Bible School will be held from 9 a.m.-noon July 27-31.

There is no fee to attend the program and it is open to children age 4-12 years old.

Participants are encouraged to apply ahead of time either by calling Westcott at 662-0905 or by visiting www.             vacationbibleschool.com/lafumc.
