Church Helps With Summer Program
You might be asking, "What can my church do to help In His Name?" Bethlehem Baptist Church of Clarkesville, GA is a great example of what a church can do. On July 29th Bethlehem brought a group of 12 adults and youth to Harrison Square apartments where they conducted a one day Vacation Bible School with the children.
Arriving just before 3:00, Bethlehem set themselves up at the playground located central to the apartment community. From here they began to gather children by knocking on doors. As the children arrived, the Bethlehem workers began to interact with them. They divided into teams and played a game where they tried to grab bandanas from each others pockets. Following this, the kids gathered under the canopy for storytime. The kids enjoyed making a craft that involved yo-yo's. After more games and grafts, the day was ended with the most importatant snack time.
In all there were over thirty children from the apartment community in attendance. Everyone had a good time! To find out how your church can be involved in activities such as this, contact In His Name at 706-968-6556.
