We are sending a team down to Harvest Bible Chapel on the island of Barbados from August 18-26. Our team, along with a team from Harvest Philadelphia, will be traveling to help put on a Vacation Bible School with the church in Barbados.
Harvest Barbados sits in a community full of children on an island where children’s ministry is not common among churches. We are praying that God would use this week to reach not only the children in the area for the gospel, but their parents as well! Pastor Derek Ward and his children’s ministry volunteers expect between 100 and 150 children to attend, and it wouldn’t be surprising if we exceeded those numbers.
The Vacation Bible School will run from 9:00AM until 3:00PM Monday through Friday of that week and we’ll be ministering to children ranging from ages 3 to 11 years old.
The team of 10 from Vertical Church Columbus is responsible for putting on the main sessions each day which will include leading worship and putting on a space themed skit called “Star Voyage” that goes along with and supports the gospel theme for each day. Additionally, our team is creating and organizing the crafts that the children will do.
Please pray for the team even now as preparations are being made and rehearsals are already going on. If you would like to support this trip financially, please click here. Make sure that you identify Mission Barbados when submitting your gift.
