Vacation Bible School
Location: Memorial United Methodist Church, 250 Bryant Avenue, White Plains
When you're hustling between camp, family trips, the beach and the pool all summer, it's easy to lose sight of God. So local children (and their grownups) are invited to attend a special one-weekend Vacation Bible School offered by Memorial and Central Korean United Methodist Churches on July 18 and 19, 2003.

The theme will be "Lighthouse Kids: Shining God's Light." All ages are welcome!

Memorial and Central Korean's Vacation Bible School will run from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, with dinner included, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, with lunch.

The suggested donation is $10 per person or $25 per family, prorated for those who attend just one day. Those unable to pay are welcome. Contact Martha Rice, Memorial's coordinator of ministries (914) 948-6375 or (914) 949-2146 ext. 15 (MRice2283@aol.com), to ask questions or register.
