Immanuel Baptist Church

When: 9 a.m. to noon June 19-23

Location: 901 W. 28th St., Erie

Details: We are engaged in an epic battle for the hearts and minds of our youth. Every day, children are bombarded with lies about who they are, who their Creator is, and where their salvation comes from. Thankfully, God has given his children armor to wear in this battle between truth and lies, light and darkness, good and evil! Your kids will learn how they can be part of God’s kingdom through salvation in his Son. And they will be equipped with the armor of God as they train to become Keepers of the Kingdom who stand strong in the battle for truth! Kids from kindergarten through 12th grade are invited to join us.

Registration is not required but greatly appreciated. To register, please contact Tom Breter at or 814-866-9319. 

Waterford Baptist Church

Location: 325 East St., Waterford

Details: STOMPERS & CHOMPERS is a dinosaur theme where kids explore our world before the Flood, complete with fun-loving characters, lush jungle environments, and dino-sized experiences. Students will learn ageless truths from the faith and failures of some of the first people in the Bible. And they’ll discover how they can, by faith, follow God’s big plan for them today!
