This past week, Backyard Bible Club continued its 2011 run with regular Tuesday and Thursday program sessions. We welcomed back children who had been evicted from their previous house, but had not moved far. We had not seen them in over a month, so we were very glad for their return. We were also very glad to see all the children who come. We were also very glad for this past week’s wonderful weather!
We have continued our sessions related to Black History Month with more poems written by black people as well as with more stories about the accomplishments of black people. On Tuesday we read a true story about a family that integrated a previously all-white school; children who “went to war armed only with love.” On Thursday we read a story about a man named Uncle Jed who dreamed of owning his own barber shop and overcame seemingly insurmountable odds to achieve his dream. Next week will wrap up our black history month themed sessions with a president’s day story about our nation’s first black president and a celebration of all people. The week after that we’ll continue moving through our story book Bibles.
Agape continues to plan our summer children’s program, and we should see some exciting changes and developments as summer rolls around.
