Bible Explorers Conduct Sailboat Races

St. Paul's Bible ExplorersBible Explorers of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Put-in-Bay, raced wood sailboats with lung-power to conclude a period of study about the life-saving grace of Jesus.  Rev. Mary Staley organizes the weekly Bible study for children with the assistance of parents.  This afternoon’s event, held in the church undercroft, included a visit by Commodore Perry!

The sailors, decked out in nautical attire, had to blow their sailboats down a long canal (i.e., rain gutter filled with water).  During the event, Mother Mary referenced various points of interest related to the children’s Bible study.  Participation prizes were awarded, and post-race treats were offered as well.St. Paul's Bible ExplorersSt. Paul's Bible ExplorersSt. Paul's Bible ExplorersSt. Paul's Bible Explorers
