June 8-12, 2009 Winchester Community Vacation Bible School.

 Six Winchester churches joined together to participate in a prayer safari with over 150 children. 

Winchester Friends who helped teach or helped with snacks: 

Virginia Densmore, Bettye Monks, Delilah Wilkinson, Nita Burton, Rosalyn Landess, Susan Adair, Ellen Craig and Pam Ferguson.

Each morning the group gathered for singing and announcements.

Pam Ferguson and Ellen Craig annually teach the 6th grade students basket making in addition to taking them on a tour of each of the participating churches. After touring the churches, the class spends time talking with the pastor and Pam and Ellen about the different traditions of each denomination.   Here the group of young women are pictured with Pastor Ken Rickett of Main Street Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
