“On Earth As in Heaven” explores the meaning of the Lord’s Prayer for our world today, using one petition each day to explore faith, justice and the work to which God is calling us. The program this year is unique in that each day focuses on one petition from the prayer and ties the petition to one of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals in easily accessible ways.
We are able to keep our costs low thanks in part to our generous Gethsemane members. You or your children do not need to be members of Gethsemane to join in the Vacation Bible School Fun!
