A Hannibal church hosts its version of a summertime staple July 21-23.

The Crossing calls its Vacation Bible School, "Crossing Kids Live." The church at 5th and Broadway has activities for preschool through sixth grade youngsters Monday through Wednesday from 6:30-8:30 p.m., with registration starting at 6.

CKL is actually schools going on at once, with preschoolers meeting in the Kids building and K through 6 meeting in the Orpheum Theater.

Crossing Kids Live features a fully produced original drama with a live band, interactive Bible teaching and small group discussions and activities. And, across the street in Central Park, there will be inflatables, games, snacks and more.

To register in advance for Crossing Kids Live, stop by the office at 205 South 5th or go to www.thecrossing.net.
