Intergenerational Events Invite Children and Adults to ‘Get Real’ About Courageous Discipleship

“Get Real: Living as Courageous Disciples” is the theme of an evening of intergenerational events at the Church of the Brethren Annual Conference, 7-8:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 5. The Annual Conference will take place in Columbus, Ohio, on July 2-6. The evening of special events for all ages is organized and led by Joel and Linetta Ballew.

Children and adults who participate will have a wide variety of activity stations to choose from, focused on biblical and modern-day stories of courageous discipleship and an outdoor ministries theme. Activities will be led by volunteers at each station. Plans are for stations to feature camp-type activities, games, arts and crafts, a sing along, a book nook, nature exploration, dramatic storytelling, word puzzles, movies, and more. Participants will receive a sheet to mark off the stations they visit. Prizes will be awarded for completing at least seven stations.

Start at the “Welcome/Greeting Campsite” in the Hyatt Deleware Rooms, where guide sheets and initial information will be provided beginning at 7 p.m. on July 5. For more information go to www.brethren.org/ac .
