The message of the ‘GUTSY Bears’


Church Calendar

Photo courtesy of Grace United Methodist Church Grace United Methodist Church shared “Camp Out VBS” June 25-27. The focus of the camp was "Jesus Is The Light.” Karen Hibbard and Margie Ruff directed the camp. Each evening the children enjoyed “Music and More,” “Bible Exploration,” “Wilderness Games,” and “Projects-with-a Purpose.” During the “Projects-With-A-Purpose” the children made approximately 40 GUTSY bears that week. The children made each GUTSY bear unique with eye and hair color just as God made them. They wrote a personal message for another child such as “Jesus loves you” on a paper heart and placed inside the bear in hope that the “Light of Jesus” is shared to that child during a dark time when they might need a hug and to know that they are never alone. GUTSY bear stands for “God’s Uniquely Talented Special You.” The children were so excited at the thought of sharing their bears. Pictured here are two of the GUTSY Bears they made.

The goal of the program is to make students aware of the consequences poor decision-making can have on a person’s life.
