From July 15 through July 19, the Taylorsville United Methodist Church will be hosting its Dino-Might Jesus Vacation Bible Camp for 4-year-olds through rising fifth-graders.

Anna Grimes, one of the coordinators of the camp, said in an email interview that the church has been hosting this camp for many years.

“Bible camps are important to our community so children have an opportunity to come to a safe place and learn about stories in the Bible and meet other children in the community,” she said.

Grimes emphasized that this is a great opportunity for the kids to learn how to share a meal and play together.

“We are offering this camp at no cost to the parents. It is our church’s way of showing God's love to the community,” Grimes said.

Grimes also said they will be accepting coin donations each day to raise funds for their special projects.

This year, the proceeds will be donated to Heifer International, where families in need will receive chickens to raise and sell the eggs to make a living.

Throughout the program, the kids will be able to learn about different Bible stories, including the stories of David, Goliath, Daniel, Elijah, and Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.

The church hopes that each lesson will move the participants closer to knowing how much Jesus loves us.

They will also have other activities for the kids such as crafts, singing and games.

Kids who are 3 years old are welcome to come with a parent.

Every evening, they will have a family dinner starting at 5:30 p.m., followed by the Bible Camp at from 6 to 8 p.m.

Registration is free. For more information or to register your kids today, you may contact the church at 410-875-4101 on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
