Day camp, VBS programs resume

The Newnan Times-Herald

After a break during the July 4 week, Vacation Bible Schools are area churches will resume on Monday.

Plans have also been announced for a Lutheroad Day Camp later this month at Christ Our Shepherd Lutheran Church in Peachtree City. The day camp will be July 17- 21 for rising first through sixth-graders.

Camp hours will be 9 a.m.-4 p.m. from Monday-Thursday, and 9 a.m.-noon on Friday.  “Early drop-off and after care can be arranged, if needed,” said David Beecher, minister of music at the church.

Counselors from Camp Lutheridge in North Carolina bring “a quality Christian ‘camp’ experience in the familiarity of the children’s own community,” according to Ellen Pfundt, the church’s children and family ministry director.
