GOD'S GARDEN

God's Garden is St. Stephen's new summer children's program for ages 4-12. We invite your young family members to come and discover God's garden gifts and how we can share these gifts with one another–near and far. We will spend August 2-6, sharing stories from the Bible and exploring food & cultural traditions from Honduras, Cuba, Mexico, Haiti, and Ghana. Each day starts in the school gymnasium at 9:00 a.m. with pickup at 3:00 p.m. CT. Your young family members can expect their week to be filled with fantastic, fun-filled games, music, and arts & crafts. Cost is $30 and includes snacks, t-shirt, and all supplies. Each participant will need to bring their own sack lunch.
