Stonegate Baptist Church invites children to "Avalanche Ranch: A Wild Ride Through God's Word" Vacation Bible School.

"This year our church is a stampede of excitement as we visit Avalanche Ranch," says Pastor Alfredo Benavidez of Stonegate Baptist Church.

The Avalanche Ranch Program will provide memorable Bible-learning activities for kids of all ages.

Each day kids will sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, nibble Chuck Wagon Chow, take on a Daily Challenge to let God's love grow into their homes, experience electrifying Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God's Word, and create Bible Point Crafts they'll take home and play with all summer long, Benavidez said.

"Avalanche Ranch is an exciting way for kids to learn more about God's love," Pastor Benavidez said. "Kids will join nearly a million children in North America and take part in a hands-on mission project that will reach orphans in Africa.

"Each day concludes at Showtime Roundup - a celebration that gets all participants involved in living what they've learned. Family members and friends are encouraged to join us daily for this special time. We hope Avalanche Ranch will get everyone wild about God in our community."

Avalanche Ranch begins on June 25 and continues through June 29, meeting each day from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Call 668-4514 for information.
