Summer Update!

What a fun summer it has been on board The Art Bus Project…and so we wanted to share highlights with you!
ART CAMPS
Plans took off for us and we were able to out  together a summer Art Camp in Hamlin Plantation in July.  We gathered 17 children together and created things that gave us a new “perspective on life”…art goggles, hot air balloons and watercolors landscapes of our neighborhood.  It was a great couple of days with new friends, and we hope to reconnect with them all very soon!  We also raised $500 so that we could do more outreach in our community.
GIRLS’  STUDENT MINISTRIES
We welcomed our middle school and high school students on board the bus to open scripture together and then create art based off of the lesson.  For two weeks we all ventured downtown and served the girls’ at the Pink Bus ministry.  As we learned about being the Salt and Light of the world, we lived it out and encouraged these girls to create their own paper lanterns.
KIDS’ CLUB and Camps at East Cooper Christian Preschool
Each month we pull the bus around to the front of the church to teach Kids’ Club during both services.  It has been such a fun way for us to connect with the children at St. Peter’s and have them creatively engage with their lesson.  We have also had the opportunity to serve ECCP at their summer camps each week this summer.
Vacation Bible School(s)!
In addition to teaching children during out VBS in June, we have trekked from Downtown to McClellanville, serving other churches as they put on their VBS and reached children in their communities,  We were able to provide a unique opportunity to them and one that we hope will encourage them in their mission to others!
