St. Francis Parish in Sherwood will hold a baseball-themed vacation Bible school this month. "Play Ball" is for children entering preschool through fourth grade. The session is set for 9 a.m.-12:15 p.m. June 23-27.

Children will learn, through the analogy of baseball and the idea of teamwork, what it means to be one with Christ, to work together as part of God’s plan, and to love another as God loves. The session includes Bible stories, crafts, team-building games, and Bible songs.

At the same time, the parish will host a summer retreat for those on fifth to seventh grades. That program, titled "Grand Slam,” will include music, concessions, scavenger hunt, a service project and games.

Registration for both runs until June 9. Forms can be found here.
