Note: the following is a press release issued by Calvary Presbyterian Church.

Elementary school-aged children from throughout the Plateau are invited to attend Vacation Bible School from 9 a.m. to noon, Aug. 11-13, hosted by Calvary Presbyterian Church on Porter Street in Enumclaw. Registration is free and open on the church website, organizer Dawn Kinney-Miller said. This year’s theme is “Clean water for all God’s children!”

The three-day event will be followed on Saturday, Aug. 14, by a communitywide 5K water walk to raise funds to provide clean water for communities around the world. Parents and friends are invited to walk on the Foothills Trail with Vacation Bible School participants starting at 9 a.m. from The Summit. Walkers can register in advance at watermission.org or bring a donation and sign up for the walk on the day of the event.

“Our church membership is dedicated to outreach abroad and here at home, and clean water is one of the global needs we feel strongly about,” said Calvary Pastor Lynell Caudillo. She says the church will be following the latest COVID-19 protocols and holding VBS outside, mostly under covered awnings in the parking lot.

“Vacation Bible School is something our church loves to do, so it feels like a celebration to be doing this again with Bible stories, crafts, music, play, and snacks,” Kinney-Miller said.

“Last year when we couldn’t host children at the church, we packed boxes with crafts and games and sent them to children who had attended before,” she added. This year, all staff members and volunteers have received the COVID vaccine. Activities will be offered in English and Spanish, as needed.

Elena De La Paz, the church’s summer intern, is on this year’s VBS planning team. A Whitworth University student, she assisted with children’s church programs during mission trips to Ethiopia, Cambodia and Costa Rica.

For more information and VBS registration. visit the Calvary Presbyterian Church website or Facebook page or pick up a flier at the church office.
