St. Barnabas' Summer Program
This summer we will be having St. Barnabas' Summer Program on Wednesday's and Thursday's from June 19th to August 8th. The morning session from 9:00 to 12:00 will be for children 3 years and older through those who have completed first grade. The afternoon session from 1:00 to 4:00 will be for children who have completed grades second through fourth.
Our director of Sunday School, Julie Whittaker and Michelle Flauto, a teacher at Little Learners Pre-school will be coordinating the program. We will be using Godly Play materials, supplemented by art, music, drama, and special guests. We will have daily devotions led by the Rev. Sarah Schofstall and others. Julie and some of our volunteers are special education teachers, and we plan to have a medically trained professional on site every day so that we may safely welome all children. We will do our best to accomodate any special needs.
God's workers in the Bible, in history, and in the present will be the theme. We expect to have visits from St. Barnabas, and other men and women from the Bible, along with visits from a present day fire fighter, Nasa engineer, emergency room nurse, a stay-at-home mom, a landscape designer, and others who are doing God's work in the world today.
