IB Church to Teach Children about Food and Faith. Free Program Offered July 6-10 at 6:30pmJun 09, 2015 02:42PM ● By Paul Spear
The IB United Methodist Church (455 Palm Avenue) invites children ages 4-11 to learn this July 6-10 at 6:30pm – 8:30pm about the importance of food and faith with this year’s Vacation Bible School focused on helping our neighbors who are hungry. This is a free program open to all children.
The Church currently offers programs to help those who are hungry. These programs include the Broken Loaf Food Pantry, Saturday Morning Breakfast & Shower program and the Community Garden. The church also supports a homeless teen shelter program by providing meals every month and also participates in efforts to end malaria in Africa where children are the largest casualty.
Children attending Vacation Bible School will learn about these programs as ways to help those in need. They will, for example, make a welcome banner for the food pantry, placemats for those coming to the Saturday breakfast; they will help in the garden, donate canned food and make reusable shopping bags. They will in 90 minutes enjoy crafts, songs, games, refreshments and stories from the Bible.
