About the Curriculum
Dear FPC Families:
Our planners have been working hard on our upcoming Vacation Bible School & Kids Disciple Club, being held July 15-18. We are excited because we are using an Africa theme which connects with two important ministries in our church -- our members who are African refugees, mostly from the Congo, and the youth mission trip to Kenya.
Our plans are based on the ROAR! curriculum from Group Publishing. Recently, some concerns have been raised about cultural insensitivities in this curriculum. As happens every year, we had already reviewed this material and made changes to ensure that it is developmentally appropriate, culturally respectful, and theologically congruent with our Presbyterian beliefs.
We are especially excited that some of our members from Africa will help showcase food, music, and art from their countries in a simulated African Market, and that our older elementary children will tour an Underground Railroad site in Greensboro.
Our hope is to teach the children to respect and appreciate the diversity of other cultures and the uniqueness of all people as we are all created by God, in the image of God, and to remind them that God will be with us through all the happy and the hard times of our lives.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact Lisa Witherspoon at lwitherspoon(at)fpcgreensboro.org or Donna Chase at dchase(at)fpcgreensboro.org.
