Parkersburg First Presbyterian Church

They spent months planning and then teaching classes that linked Biblical passages to lessons based on the beach, insects and dinosaurs.

Plenty of construction paper, glitter, glue and even popsicle sticks for crafts.

Feeling grown-up sitting in the large wooden pews for prayers before dismissing for the day.

Last day picnic that included hot dogs on the grill and more grape Kool-aid. Anyone for a game of Red Rover now?
