British Columbia VBS Goes Green

| |

Vacation Bible school at The Tapestry Christian Reformed Church in Richmond, British Columbia, went green this year.

Sixty children gathered each day to share in God’s calling to plant seeds of love, with the parable of the sower and the seed as the backdrop for their discussions and activities.

The children studied seed planting in plots around the church, ideas for growing food for lunches, reminders of how and why things can be recycled and reused, and other ways in which children and families can make wise choices for more sustainable living.

The children also took field trips to the Stanley Park Ecological Centre and the University of British Columbia Demonstration Farm for exploratory outdoor experiences.

Tapestry pastor Rev. Albert Chu said he hopes “lasting seeds of love were planted during the week for a calling of responsibility to others and this world through caring for God’s creation.”
