The Children in Action (CiA) class from Beulah Baptist Church recently took a trip to Guido Gardens in Metter. The greenery, flowers and tranquil waterfalls offered a gentle reminder to the group of the natural beauty of the world.
The children enjoyed strolling through the gardens and visiting the replicas of the wooden cross, carpenter’s shop and the Ten Commandments. At each stop in the garden, CiA leader Becky Covington talked with the children and discussed why each one of the replicas was important in the life of Jesus.
While visiting the chapel, the class prayed for the garden’s ministries and all of the people who had visited before them.
The children’s favorite spot in the garden was the replica of the empty tomb. Each class member was amazed to know that Jesus was buried in a tomb similar to the one they were in. Even more amazing was the fact that, when asked if Jesus was still buried, the children immediately responded, “He is risen!”
The CiA teachers and students were blessed with a beautiful day in Guido Gardens and were thankful to Beulah Baptist Church for supporting the trip.
Children in Action meet at 7 p.m. Wednesdays at Beulah Baptist Church in Pembroke. For more information, call 653–2640.
