Egypt is the theme at this year's vacation Bible school at Hope Church, from July 18 to 22. The program will run from 2 to 5 p.m. at the church at 240 Wolfpit Road.Each day, children will experience history as they see, hear, touch, and even taste what it was like to live in Pharaoh's empire, a church press release said."They will explore authentic marketplace shops, visit Joseph (who's in Pharaoh's prison, then gets promoted to Pharaoh's palace!), take part in games, dance to lively Bible songs, and sample tasty tidbits" as they discover more about how "God was with Joseph in good times and bad."Information: 203-762-0706 or HopeChurchCT.org.
