God's Water Heroes, Splash Into Living Waters

Water is God’s blessing, essential for all life!
We are delighted that congregations in Baltimore and in Prince George's County participated in our training and delivered their VBS program this year.

This unique and exciting program enriches not only the children and youth of your congregation, but your adults and families as well. We hope to help deepen their appreciation and enjoyment of the precious waters that God has provided for all of us, and instill a sense of commitment to care for present and future generations through our watershed’s well being.
The curriculum, entitled God's Water Heroes, Splash Into Living Waters, offers interactive games, activities, and learning for elementary through middle school students. The modules are: 1) Water at the Beginning of Creation; 2) Water is Life; 3) Trees for Life; 4) Loving Our Neighbor: Caring for Water; and 5) God’s “still small voice” in nature (1 Kings 19:11-13).
