WHAT’S ADULT V.B.S. ALL ABOUT?

Why should kids have all the fun? It is time to nerd out with adults – VBS style at the Hatchery! Walter Brueggemann will be bringing the Bible time by exploring the prophetic arc of the Hebrew scriptures. Come ready to experience craft, games, pink lemonade, cookies, silly songs, and hand motions (maybe)! Not only will you learn from a master, but you’ll have the opportunity to workshop and craft each daily lesson into a sermon outline, teaching plan, or liturgy you can take home to use.
.

GROW, GO, AND SOW!

* Gain an awareness of the living and life-giving God of Israel.
* Examine the larger story and specific Biblical texts.
* Learn about the prophetic imagination.
* Develop a curriculum or sermon series to put into action.
