Bethany Lutheran presents a free pre-Christmas event for kids on Saturday, Dec. 14. “Christmas for Kids” is a one-day Vacation Bible School for children ages 4 to 10. Parents will appreciate the “day-out” time for shopping and Christmas preparations, while their children attend a safe, entertaining event. Parents may drop-off their children any time after 9:30 a.m. and pick them up by 2 p.m. The children may stay for the entire event, or come for an hour or two.
“It is a fun opportunity for kids to learn about the “real meaning” of Christmas, which is the birth of Jesus. Children will enjoy a day of crafts, songs, cookie decorating, stories and games. Lunch is provided and each child will receive a gift,” the church stated. This free event is sponsored by Bethany Lutheran Church, located at the corner of 12th and Thompson streets in The Dalles.
