Chapel and Garwin’s Community Bible School, “Hometown, Nazareth” was held the week of June 6-10 at Chapel Church and was led by Ann Jackson and Heidi Langenbau. Participating churches were Garwin UM Church, Garwin Christian, St. Boniface Catholic, and Chapel Church. About 120 children attended and 43 adults, junior high and high school students helped everyday. Each day the age-level tribes of Judah, Benjamin, Zebulun, Asher and Joseph sang, played games, built projects, and ate feasts of figs, grapes & food just like in Jesus‚ day. They also spent time visiting with Mary, wife of Joseph, in her home. Students learned that Jesus had a family, a name, a home, He went to church, and He served others...just like we do today! The week concluded with a powerful outreach program on Sunday, June 12, at Chapel at 10 am. Children sang their favorite songs; Mary, Eunice, Deborah and the Tax Collector performed a skit where they came to believe in Jesus as the Son of God; they watched a video of the week; and Randy Beichley, one of Chapel’s Sunday School superintendents, recognized those who helped this week by giving each one a VBS cookie, compliments of Chapel’s Age-Level committee.
