Children ages 4 (by 9/1/2017) – “Rising Into” Grade 6 and volunteers from middle school age to mid-nineties delight in this week of fun.

Books for Families

Little Things that Turned Out BIG!

June Recommendations from Kat Barden
 
Get a head start on the VBS theme, Little Things that Turned Out BIG, with these books for children, families, and the young at heart.
 
“Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce." ~ Jeremiah 29:5
 
Saving the Ants by Ruth Gilmore 
This is a collection of children’s sermons about the Gospel of Matthew. Use it as a summertime devotional for the garden parables and stories of the Bible. 
 
The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle
Compare the Carle text and illustrations to the plants in the community garden at church.  Watch how they change as we provide nutritional fresh vegetables for our Northside Ministries friends.
