Narnian Adventure Update

A few weeks back this summer’s Great Adventure Days came to a close. The 2014 Narnian Adventure brought children through the wardrobe and into the mysterious and enchanted land of Narnia. Using the theme of The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, our annual four-day children’s program transformed the church into a forest complete with melting snow.

See how it went:

A big thank you to everyone involved in making this year’s Great Adventure Days possible.
