T he town’s five churches will come together for a vacation Bible school Feb. 20 to 22 at the Whitehall United Methodist Church on Greenmount Cemetery Road.
“We’ve worked together before, and this is just an extension of that,” said UMC Pastor the Rev. Ginny Deyo, who noted the churches have worked together on summer Bible schools and on a Thanksgiving dinner.
The event will start with a sledding and sliding party for the entire community from 2 to 4 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 20. The party will include free hot dogs and beverages and will be for youths and their families.
The school will continue from 6 to 8 p.m., Feb. 21 and 22. There will be Bible classes, arts and crafts, a movie and refreshments.
Churches involved include the UMC, First Baptist Church, Our Lady of Hope Catholic Church, Trinity Episcopal and First Presbyterian.
