Local Children Enjoy Vacation Bible School

Community children enjoyed five Wednesday nights of fun, games, music, prizes and bible stories during the annual Vacation Bible School (VBS) held at the House on the Rock Church in Rockaway Park. VBS received a large turnout of children, especially with this year's "fiesta" theme. The ages varied from beginners 3-5 years old, primary 6-11, teens 12-17 and adults. There were classes in music instruction led by Katherine Patrylo, a professional high school music teacher along with classes in arts and crafts which were led by Evelyn Castro. Joe W. led the children in teaching bible stories; other assistants included Cathy Patrylo among several others. After the classes the children celebrated with singing, a movie and ice cream. All teachers and assistants were volunteers and the program was free. Associate pastor Garry Patrylo Jr. was the director of the program while senior pastor Patrylo was the adult class teacher.
