Backyard Bible Adventures

July 30 | 9-12 p.m. | Duke Park
August 4 | 4-6 p.m. | TBD
Join Blacknall families as they invite neighbors and friends to come to two hours of fun and adventure discovering how Jesus gathers us together. Children from different parts of the city will be invited to join Blacknall children and leaders in their neighborhoods. Our time together will be filled with singing, scripture memory, crafts, games and fun. This is a great opportunity for all of us to participate in neighborhood outreach and loving our children from Blacknall and beyond. After each gathering there will be opportunity for follow through with neighborhood families later in the week at a cookout or ice cream social.
Summer Story Stations
Sundays beginning June 5, Sunday School hour
Discover how to create, play, listen, pray, imagine, and dance with the stories of the Old Testament. Taste and see what God was up to with his covenant people in the years after they arrived in Canaan. Participating with our Story Stations guarantees that you will walk away with something to talk further about with a child or another friend. The table is set for meaningful conversation to happen outside of the church walls: Why did it happen that way? How was God present in that? How long did it take to walk to Babylon? And what was it like to be in the belly of a whale?
The Thursday morning Women’s Bible Study group transforms into a playgroup on Thursday mornings in the summer, and welcomes all to come and join them! Each Thursday someone “hosts” at a park, pool, backyard, driveway, or playground for the morning. Participants bring their own children, sunscreen, and snacks, and enjoy time together while the children play. A fun low-key way to invite new families into fellowship. Look for a sign-up sheet to host coming in April and if you would like to host a Thursday morning or two, contact Beth Solie.
