Vacation Bible School – Gather in the Garden

IMG_0784In summer 2013, the Christian Nurture (children’s education) and Outreach committees  combined together to meet the neighbors. Since Trudy meets many children from Townsend through God’s Garden and brings them to the garden,  the two committees decided to bring a VBS to where the children in the neighborhood first felt welcomed —in the garden. In June 2013 and again in August, we met in the garden or on the north lawn from 1-3pm each day for a week. Children from the neighborhood and church sang songs, decorated t-shirts, hats, made cross pillows, heard bible stories, broke bread together at snack time, and made new friends.
