RELIGION BRIEFS: June, 21, 2104

Four Terre Haute churches have united to present children and adults with a five-evening summer adventure and religious experience this week where all can come to dream, create, learn, and do creative works of faith.  

In an uniquely designed joint program of Centenary United Methodist, Central Presbyterian, St. Stephen’s Episcopal and Trinity Lutheran churches, children and adults will bond together in a learning setting.

Children will fire up their imaginations, grab tools and paint brushes and put on their thinking caps in a “Workshop of Science and Wonders” environment.

 Parents, grandparents, caregivers and interested adults will be provided an in-depth biblical background into what is being presented to the children. They will be prepared to answer the children’s questions at home or in the car going home, explain what  the children do not understand, and learn much about the Holy Land and its people.  

Children will be at Central Presbyterian, 125 N. Seventh St., from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday. The Adult Bible Study sessions will take place in Centenary, 301 N. Seventh St., at the same time each day.  

Call Cheryl Moles at 812-232-5049 to learn more about the event or register to attend.
