Allen/East Allen townships: Good Shepherd hosts VBS

Wednesday, June 19, 2019 by The Press in Columns

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 1335 Old Carriage Road, Kreidersville, is holding Vacation Bible School 9 a.m.-noon June 24-28 for children age 3 through sixth grade.

This year’s theme is “Moses,” and the lessons were written by the church’s Christian education committee. Attendees will learn about Moses’ life, from floating in a basket in the river through God giving Moses the Ten Commandments. Lessons will be taught through stories, songs, crafts, games and more.

All offerings collected during the week will go toward Food for the Poor Inc., which provides meals to malnourished children in the world.

Preregister by calling the church office at 610-262-9517 between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Mondays through Fridays or just attending on the first day. There is no fee to register.

Each child will need a plain white T-shirt to design during craft time. It can be brought along on the first day or purchased at the registration table.


The fifth annual Northampton Area School District Student Council car show will be held July 27 at Bicentennial Park West, 5351 Park West Lane, East Allen Township.

Registration is 9 a.m.-noon. Dash plaques will be given to the first 100 preregistered cars. Awards will be presented 3 p.m.

All makes, models and years of cars, trucks, motorcycles and antique tractors are welcome. The event will also include door prizes, a tricky tray, food, a deejay, craft show and flea market. All proceeds benefit NASD Student Council.

For registration and other information, call Roy at 610-440-2213 or 610-704-9021.
