Hudson United Methodist Church

Registration is now open - Hudson United Methodist Church (2670 Hudson Aurora Road) will host an Outdoor Family Vacation Bible School “Concrete and Cranes” on Aug. 5, 12, and 19 from  6:30 - 8 p.m. 

Families, grab your hard hats and tool belts and join us this August for an outdoor, COVID-conscious Vacation Bible School, during which the church grounds will transform into a world of concrete and cranes, rivets and rebar, bulldozers and backhoes. Participants will learn to build their faith on Jesus as they uncover the truth that He who began a good work will be faithful to carry it on to completion. They will make crafts, sing songs, play games, enjoy snacks, and participate in memorable Bible-learning activities. 

Register online at https://www.hudsonumc.com/vbs.html. Online registration is open now through July 15.

This year’s VBS program is free. For more information, contact directors Kerrie Book, Becca Gates, and Jackie Beam at VBSatHUMC@gmail.com.
