You may have noticed that we didn’t have a Vacation Bible School this year. Instead, Christian Ed has decided to try something a bit new. Instead of having a summer program that lasts for a week, we would like to create a new activity a few times throughout the year. One that is meant to foster fun and faith formation for you (YES YOU!) and all involved. Specifically, we want to reach out to our friends at the Jenkins School and invite them into this event with us. How are we doing that? With an activity called Messy Church.
What is Messy Church?
“A way of being church for all-ages to join in experiencing fun and faith formative activities. Found throughout the globe. Based on the values of all-ages together, celebration, creativity, hospitality, and centering ourselves in Christ”
The tagline for Messy Church is, “Church, but not as you know it.” People gather around the Word with games, crafts, activities, and storytelling. Important to this endeavor is gathering around food to share in fellowship and community building. We build relationships with God, each other, and the world.
As time comes closer, we will be reaching out to let you know how you can be involved and to tell you more about what Messy Church will look like. The first event will be in November so be on the lookout for invitations to be involved!
