                 VBS-WOOD

Wes, Sawyer and Hadleigh along with Bev and Gary gathered at church for the story of The Three Trees and the scripture identifying Jesus as the son of a carpenter. Following lunch, they headed out to Roger and Nancy Sturm's Woodshop. Nancy helped us with drilling holes for the opening of the perch. And so we hammered and sanded and glued until the end product was a wren house with a roof from an actual old barn. Thank you to the Sturm's for thier time and effort to help us create a home for birds.

"I like to think Jesus might have done something like this as a child with directions from Joseph, " says Rev. Jan.
