With the community still trying to return to some semblance of normalcy, it is important that we still have certain constants in our lives. One of those in Shafter is the tradition of vacation Bible school. In years past, there were several vacation bible schools, but this year there have been just a couple. The one held this past week was a community effort, with several churches participating. This information came from Rachel Friesen:

Bryson Bloemhof with his creation from arts and crafts time.

"Shafter Mennonite Brethren Church hosted PandaMania, a vacation bible school, the week of June 29-July 3. It was a fun-filled week of games, crafts, skits, and Bible lessons, for kids in kindergarten through sixth grade.

We implemented daily temperature checks, lots of hand washing, hand sanitizers everywhere, individual craft stations, and lots of personal space. We had to limit the number of children to 70, so that we could keep groups small and not exceed the occupancy cap for the sanctuary."
