2022 COMMUNITY VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL About 70 parents and children came to the closing program for the inaugural Fairfield Community Vacation School. So many people helped from 6 churches.
In partnership with the Fairfield Mennonite Church and their Pastor Brenda Walter, our Outreach Team provided and served the snacks, pizza, ice cream and water for the children all week.
We are VERY grateful to: Hamiltonban Township Community Park for the free use of their facilities; Kathy Lichty from Iron Springs Brethren Church for her leadership as Coordinator; Pastor Jeff and the congregation of Liberty Worship Center for their extravagant hospitality in allowing us to gather in their air conditioned building; and to Lower Marsh Creek Presbyterian Church for purchasing the curriculum and manage the budget; St. John Lutheran Church for providing music; and others who supplied science experiments and activities.
