Summer Bible Club

Summer Bible Club (SBC) has been a ministry at Niekerk CRC since the mid 1990's.  SBC offers a Vacation Bible School type program to post high school adults who have developmental differences such as poor verbal skills, weak motor skills, tourette syndrome, downs syndrome, aspergers or other issues on the autism continuum, etc.  Half of them live in group homes and half live with their parents.  SBC meets on six Tuesday evenings during the months of June and July.  SBC culminates with the students and their families attending and participating in a Sunday evening service followed by an ice cream social.  Niekerk is blessed to have many caring adults and youth who enjoy volunteering their time by helping these students during their Bible lesson and singing time and then as they rotate through craft time, recreation, and snack time.  God is honored in many ways as those with special needs share a special friendship with church members and as those volunteers have an opportunity to offer the cup of cold water in His name.
