We held our first Vacation Bible School on the farm in 2012 from August 7th through 17th for the children in the local community of Tom’s Hope and its surrounding areas.
Approximately 50 children/young adults (aged 2 – 20 years old) attended VBS from 9 am – 1 pm each day. The children learned about the Creation Story and the Wordless Book (the Gospel message). Each day was filled with worship time, songs, Bible lessons, games, crafts, lunch and on Friday afternoons, going to the river. Each Friday, the parents were invited to join the children for lunch and river fun.
We owe a debt of gratitude to the parents who volunteered as Bible teachers and cooks as well as the farm staff who served as lifeguards on Friday afternoons when the children went to the river to play in the waterfall and pools.
