2007 VBC: Anglican Pilgrimage 2007 Vacation Bible Camp
Vacation Bible School, 2007 was a 'pilgrimage' journeying around the church and using the stained glass windows as stations for meditation and information. Several of our windows depict Saints of the church and are very beautiful. Everybody loved it! We would pack a snack and sit before a different window each day of the 5 day program, learning about the particular saint.
Then we had several craft activities that included, icons of the saints, Anglican prayer beads, bread baking workshops and our large project that took the week to complete - a special altar frontal created by the kids and it adorned the altar for our final special Eucharist on Friday. We also used it for our Sunday morning services and encouraged the congregation to come forward and see what we accomplished.
