2016 Vacation Bible School Retrospective

Here are some pictures from our Vacation Bible School program of earlier this month. And if you’d like to hear some of the things I learned in the course of doing this program, you can also listen to my message from 8/14. I earnestly hope that the kids learned something too!

On day 1, we took a walk around the neighborhood, looking for solar panels. The kids found all of the five houses on our route, and also found some solar panels I hadn’t noticed (like the small ones on garden lights).

On day 2, we spent some time outside decorating the sidewalks with encouraging messages for passers-by. The kids really got into this, and had no trouble thinking of things that might minister to people’s spirits.

Not many photos from the third and fourth days: on day 3 we found a use for some of that 30-year-old tempera paint from the Christian Ed supply closet; and then on day 4 the kids created banners & posters for the Power for Pastors summer missions fundraising project, and also the fog cleared early enough that we could do sun printing!

World Quaker Day at BFC

Berkeley Friends Church celebrated World Quaker Day 2015 in worship by praying for the worldwide family of the Religious Society of Friends/Friends Church/Quakers–that we would all listen for and attend to the Inward Voice of Christ. Our worship speaker was Charles Blue, the oldest member of our meeting, who spoke on Psalm 23 as a prayer of thanksgiving. We also spent time praising God in song and waiting in expectant silence.

After worship, we gathered for a photo on the front steps of the meetinghouse:
