Bartlett's Immanuel United Church of Christ presented "Camp Shine," an evening vacation Bible school from June 4-8.

Students explored with the disciples Peter, Paul and John as they began the first Christian churches. All camp-type activities were held outside, weather permitting. It wrapped up with a fun Family Night June 8.

The weeklong program delighted children, youth and adults alike with stories of the early disciples and apostles.

The church gives many thanks to the countless hours of the volunteers!
