In 2009, to meet the needs of children and youth in the summer while the moms had their Friday morning Bible Study, we started a Vacation Bible School Program. The groups continued to meet in the mornings on Fridays for a number of years. Then, in 2015, Jack and Patricio (the teachers of the Hispanic Bible Conference) offered to do a men’s class in the evening. Each summer since then, at Grace Fellowship Church in Unionville, we have had the privilege of having a Vacation Bible Program for the Hispanic families we serve. It features Bible lessons and fellowship for all ages–children, teens, and adults. In the past, we have done Precepts Ministries International Bible Studies such as, “How to Make Decisions You Won’t Regret,” “What does the Bible Say About Sex?”, and “Forgiveness: Breaking the Power of the Past.” Spanish Health Ministry staff member Tabitha Pfitzenmeyer prepares lessons for the preschool and elementary children often coordinating, when appropriate, with what the teens and adults are studying.
We are grateful to Calvary Chapel Chester Springs for providing the Precepts Ministries materials for study. We also thank Precepts teachers Cindy and Dave Langford, along with Paula Helm and Pastor Ben Quintana who faithfully lead the teens. We thank God for Grace Fellowship Church and for the many volunteers from several churches who come together to make this opportunity possible for the families.
If you are interested in volunteering for Vacation Bible School, please contact Tabitha at 610-444-3001 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
