He will pick up starting at Edward Gay at 5:30 p.m. Parents need to meet their children when he takes them home starting at Edward Gay at 8:45 p.m. (Rick will not be able to drive the bus for Vacation Bible School on Friday night because of English Conversation.)

Let’s go to Australia! Vacation Bible School – June 22-26

University Baptist Church will offer Vacation Bible School the week of Monday-Friday June 22-26 from 8:45 a.m. to 12:00 noon each day. This is for children ages 5 through 5th grade. But children in 6th grade or older are very welcome to come and help as volunteers.

The theme is “Boomerang Express” and many of the games and activities will have to do with Australia – as well as learning about the Bible and about Jesus Christ.

If children of international families would like to come please register them online at the University Baptist Church website! Although you can register your children on Monday June 22 it is much better to register them early. Please visit the University Baptist Church website for more information.

Pastor Rick is willing to pick up children who live on or near the Louisiana State University campus – but they must be at least 7 years old and they must come with a card that has their name and contact information. Of course you can always bring your children to the church yourself if you would like.
