Zapped VBS starts next week

By: 19 June 2013 One Comment

Zapped VBSFirst Baptist Church of Benton (FBC) is trying something new this year — moving vacation Bible school from the church to the Boys & Girls Club in Benton in an attempt to include more children in the community in the Sunday-Thursday event.

Pastor Rick Grant, in a sermon a couple of months ago, said Zapped is a new endeavor for First Baptist Church. He said vacation Bible school is traditionally held on the FBC campus, but church officials wanted to reach out to more children in the community who would like to attend. FBC, in conjunction with other area churches, moved the event to the Boys & Girls Club and is encouraging all kids from all denominations — or those who do not attend church — to come to Bible school this year. If Zapped goes over well in the community, a similar program may be held next year.

The event kicks off Sunday (June 27) from 6 to 8 p.m. Online registration is open and you can access that here. The Boys & Girls Club is located at 105 Cox in Benton and you can get directions to the facility here.

The schedule of events is as follows:
