Tryon Presbyterian Church (TPC) will hold a summer Bible adventure called “The Big Picnic” at 430 Harmon Field Road, Aug. 1 – 5.
The theme of the event will be the feeding of the 5,000.
Through the first week in August, TPC is collecting 5,000 pounds of food to give to the Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry (TBOM) located at 154 White Drive, Columbus.
Two classes will be offered during the summer Bible adventure. An intergenerational class of children (starting at age 5), youth and adults will focus on the story “Feeding of the 5,000.”
Some of the activities for participants will include:
• Take a look at hunger across the world
• Tour TBOM
• Help with TBOM’s Feed a Kid program
• Hear about the Heifer project
• Create a communion cloth
• Create dry soup
At 8:15 p.m. every evening there will be recreation for children and youth.
The second class is for adults, led by Dr. Dent Davis, focusing on the part food played in the stories Jesus told:
• Monday will feature the miracle of Jesus changing water into wine
• Tuesday will focus on the feeding of the 5,000
• Wednesday will discuss where Jesus gives disciples fishing lessons
• Thursday will feature Jesus teaching about the bread of life and the nourishment on faith.
Friday evening at 6 p.m. the church will hold a picnic at Harmon Field. All are welcome who have participated during the week-long event.
The summer Bible adventure is for ages 5 and up. Registration is required.
