HUBBARD – ROAR! Life is wild – God is good is the theme for Vacation Bible school at Chestnut Ridge Church of God, 7215 Chestnut Ridge Road, Hubbard.

VBS will be 6 to 9 p.m. Monday through July 19 for children, grades kindergarten through sixth (completed). It will begin at a Safari Celebration, where kids will sing, shout, praise, pray, and be introduced to a Bible story and the daily theme. Every station is designed to reinforce the daily Bible Point in a hands-on, interactive way that keeps everyone engaged. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. They should wear play clothes and safe shoes.)
