Marjorie’s new approach to Vacation Bible School has attracted the attention of the Concord Journal:
In an effort to try to address some of the modern cultural challenges children face, Marjorie Masse has developed her own vacation bible school curriculum for the West Concord Union Church. The school is set to take place from Aug. 19 to Aug. 23 from 9 a.m. to noon each day and is a summer program for children.
Masse, the church’s director of children’s ministries, said she was able to create the curriculum, titled “God’s Good Earth in Our Hands,” due to her background in environmental science, her past job as the education director at a children’s museum and her experience as a university education professor.
Masse said she created the first version of this new vacation bible school curriculum while a volunteer at a Presbyterian church in Pennsylvania some years ago after not being happy with the model the church was using.
