Vacation Bible School to produce musical

   This summer's Vacation Bible School at Tolt Congregational United Church of Christ will produce an original musical written by Jack Ballard and Kaila Russell.

   The children attending the Vacation Bible School (VBS), jointly sponsored by Tolt and Sammamish Congregational United Church of Christ, will present the musical to the Sammamish congregation during worship on August 15 and to the Tolt congregation on August 22.

   The VBS will meet from 9-11:30 a.m., Aug. 9-13, at Tolt Church, 4851 Tolt Ave., Carnation. It is for kids entering kindergarten or older.

   Registration fees are just $15 per child, with a maximum of $35 per family. To register, people can call the Tolt Church office at 425-333-4254. Children who are not part of either sponsoring congregation are welcome.

   During the morning sessions, the students will learn songs and lines, make sets and costumes, play and dance, and have a basically good time. The musical includes 10 original songs by Carnation musician Jack Ballard, some written with the help of children.
