Faith Outreach Center, 1125 E 9th St in Rochester, will be having its Vacation Bible School from July 27 - July 30, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. It's free of charge and open to all kids in Kindergarten through sixth grade.
This year's theme is 'Knights of the North Castle'. While on the quest to find the King's armor, there will be learning stations, games, crafts and snacks. This year the church has also teamed up with Renee Rubio, founder of Spark of Opportunity International, to raise mission donations to help in the international fight against child hunger.
Spark of Opportunity International is a non-profit organization dedicated to changing the lives of children and their families in the largest slum of Africa.
If the church reaches its mission goal, as an incentive for donations, both Youth Pastor Eli Hall and Pastor Terry Baldwin will have a bucket of green slime dumped on their heads next week.
Renee's main incentive, however, is the difference it's making for the children in Africa.
