Church offers free children's Bible club

GLASTONBURY — For one week, beginning July 19,  children between 4 and 12 years old can attend the Children’s Bible Club at the Hubbard Green in Glastonbury.

The free 5-day club sponsored by Glastonbury Baptist Church and Child Evangelism Fellowship will be hosting the club nightly from 6 to 7: 30 p.m.

Pastor Mel Sharp, of Glastonbury Baptist, said the event will include games, songs and Bible stories. Parents can register their children upon arrival.

“It’s open to the public. Anyone can come, you don’t have to be a member of our church,” he said, adding that between his staff and the CEF staff, the children will be under plenty of supervision. All workers have been pre-screened.

Glastonbury Baptist opened in 2008 and Sharp said the church is always seeking ways to serve the community.

“This is something we want to do every year during the summer,” he said. “We want to minister to children and teach them stories from the Bible to teach them to pursue faith in God through Christ. We want to be a family-friendly ministry.”

Ultimately, he said, the church wants to reach out to addicts, offer counseling, help the hungry and work with those living in assisted living.

“These are just some of the ways in which we’re trying to find creative ways to engage the community,” Sharp said.

About 50 people, mostly in their 20s and 30s, attend Glastonbury Baptist each week.

Currently they worship on Sundays at Naubuc School, 84 Griswold St. and for Tuesday night Bible study they gather at New Life Christian Fellowship, 131 Griswold St in Glastonbury.
