Kayla Deneau, Staff Writer

FaithWay Church hosted its first vacation Bible school at Thurl Cook Park in Plainwell  from Monday, Aug. 11 through Friday, Aug. 15.

The Fun in the Sun themed carnival event featured Bible studies, snacks, music, magicians, a photo booth and larger-than-life games.

"This year's topic was Friendship- what to look for in a friend, how to be a friend, and that Jesus can be our very best friend," said Charity Dear.

Faithway Church launched this past January. Services are held at the Plainwell Community Center at 10 a.m. on Sunday mornings.
