Memorial Day in Greencreek

Greencreek celebrates Memorial Day.

COTTONWOOD -- It must be officially summer. School is out or soon will be, and it is vacation Bible school time at two of the churches in Cottonwood. Time for some outdoor fun.

Gas up the all-terrain vehicle and head out on a wilderness adventure like no other. Get up close and personal with elephants and egrets, polar bears and penguins, cockatoos and crocodiles, and so much more! This summer kids will focus in on some amazing, real-life encounters with Jesus and discover the most amazing truth of all – Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the Son of God, and by believing we can have life in His name. Each day kids will make crafts, play fun games, enjoy tasty snacks, and sing cool songs. It’s vacation Bible school time at Emmanuel Baptist Church, 404 Foster, Cottonwood. Children ages 1 through 6th grade are admitted free from 9 a.m. to noon, June 10-14. During the same week, ages 12 through 19 can experience “In the Wild” with Bible study and special activities planned just for them from 6:30 to 8 p.m. This week of fun, food, and exciting learning opportunities is free of charge and open to everyone.
