Vacation bible school

Hero Headquarters was the place to be Aug. 9-13 when North Creek United Methodist Church and St. James Catholic Church joined forces for the third year to host vacation bible school. The two churches hosted 23 school-aged children, eight teens and 20 volunteers to make the program one of the most successful yet. The program featured visits from local heroes who shared their stories with the group this year. Andrea Hogan of the Outreach Center, serviceman Paul Sears and EMT Joe Connelly all visited to share their stories of service. As a result, the students and two churches combined to raise a total of $500 for Save the Children efforts in Haiti. Vacation bible school participants also created hand made gifts for the residents of Tri-County Nursing and Rehabilitation.
