Buckingham Baptist Church, located at 24234 North James Madison Highway, will host Vacation Bible School July 6-10 from 5:45-8:45 p.m. nightly. This years theme will be “Journey Off The Map.” While exploring uncharted territory, children will discover that Jesus is the Ultimate Guide. They will learn that, even when faced with the unexpected, they can know how to listen for God’s direction.

Each night will start with Worship Rally at the Overlook, followed by a light dinner at Survival Springs. Then the children begin rotations to Bible study at Tangled Branch Tree House, Crafts at Shady Grove, Missions at Boulder Bridge, Music at Rushing Waters, and Recreation at Rappelling Ravine.

Children are invited to come out and have some fun while learning about God’s word. There will be ice cream and an obstacle course that ends with a trip down the big water Slip & Slide (so bring towels) but remember to preregister on July 5 at 5 p.m.

Pastor Doug Adams and the congregation cordially invite all children ages 3 to 11 to attend.

A bit of humor:  A lady gets a speeding ticket and goes to court.  The judge asks, ‘Ma’m What do you have to say?.”  “Your honor, I am not going to pay this ticket.”  The judge asks, “Why?”  She replied, “The sign out front said, ‘Fine for parking.’”
