RANCHO DISTRICT -- The Calvary Bible School promises a week of fun for

local youth next week, when it has its four-day Vacation Bible School.

This year, the church is offering a computer science-themed adventure,

in which kids will decode certain symbols to discover a message about

God. The event, called "GP4U: Decoding the Master's Plan," is open to all

kids in grades K-6 and is free of charge.

"Computers are so big now, and kids are really into them," said

organizer Becky Tipton about this year's theme. "We thought this would

hook them."

From Monday through Friday, participants will watch skits, do crafts,

sing songs and study Bible verse. A character named Professor

Mega-nog-gin will offer kids the symbols they need to decode a specific

message at the end of the week.

Tipton said the church is expecting 300 to 350 kids from around the

area to attend and hoped this year will be as successful as last, when

the theme was safari.

"This year, we have a simple gospel message, that God created the

universe and loves everyone," said Tipton.
