Kingdom of the Son vacation Bible school kicks off next week at the Los Alamos Church of Christ, located at 2323 Diamond Drive. Sessions for children in kindergarten through sixth grade will be held from 9-                       11:30 a.m., Monday through Friday.

A drop-in open house will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. Friday. During the open house, parents can view children’s work for the week and meet teachers.

In a safari atmosphere, kids will learn about effective interaction with God through prayer.

Throughout the week’s adventures, children will discover that God listens, provides, forgives, protects and rules. School activities will include large-group singing, Bible classes, puppet shows, skits, crafts, snacks and games.

The Bible school is free. Parents may register their children or get additional information by calling the church office, 662-3104.
