“Loving God, we ask for your guidance, that we may be teachers and learners together. Believing that you are in our midst, we set apart those who would serve in our Vacation Bible School. May they serve you in nurturing the spiritual growth of all who are entrusted in their care. Bless each one gathered here, enabling them to be channels of your grace. We pray all these things through your son Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.” Prayer from Centre Street United Methodist Church
Please join our panelists Juniper LaNunziata and Lisa Brown in a discussion about WHY we do Vacation Bible School, what it means, and what we might be do to better align our energy with our church’s mission.
