Belmont churches hold Vacation Bible School
IMG 8440

Belmont’s Peace Lutheran Church and Methodist churches held their annual Vacation Bible School with the theme “Animal Crackers” July 28–Aug. 1. This year the children brought a donation each night for Heifer International, a program to give gifts of animals to people in poor countries. The gift is ongoing in that the family who receives the animal must give the first-born female animal to another family in its village. The children and families gathered at the closing program raised $753.59 to purchase animals — a cow, a water buffalo (the original goal) and some chickens to people in need.
