St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Chatham, is planning a week of Panda-Mania for children, August 1-5 from 9 a.m. until noon. This annual Vacation Bible School will offer fun and exciting activities for children from age 4 to those entering 5th grade. The cost is $50 per child; scholarship assistance is available.

The theme, Panda-Mania, refers to animals of the rain forest -– including China’s panda bears -– to help children learn about God and Jesus through music, arts and crafts, group games, snacks and Bible stories. St. Paul’s youth group will be returning from their service trip to China and will talk to the children about their experiences.

It’s not too early to register your child for this summer adventure right here in town. The registration form is available from St. Paul’s website -- or you can stop in the office and sign up. Registration deadline is Friday, July 22. St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is located at 200 Main St., Chatham. For more information, call the office at 973-635-8085.
