    GRANT MEMORIAL UNITED METHODIST CHURCH in Presque Isle and the Presque Isle Congregational United Church of Christ collaborated to offer a weeklong Egyptian-themed Vacation Bible School. Numerous volunteers from both church congregations transformed the Grant Memorial Church into an amazing Egyptian atmosphere. Nearly 40 children had the opportunity to gather in their “families” to study scripture, spend time with Joseph to learn about his journey from prison to the palace, sing energetic songs with hand motions, enjoy healthy snacks, have their faces painted Egyptian-style, and create several Egyptian crafts. The week ended with family members attending the final half-hour of the evening to hear the children sing their songs.
