The Deeper Waters Puppet Ministry uses the vehicle of puppetry and drama to tell the gospel story. This ministry grew out of the Spring Gardens Sunday School as a response to God’s calling to expand this activity into a ministry to touch many more lives. The ministry was officially launched at a retreat held on April 2, 2004 where persons came together to commit themselves as puppeteers and to assist in other areas of costume designing and script writing.
The ministry’s spiritual theme is: Do not be afraid, from now on you will be catching people. Luke 5:10 (NIV). Its mission is to spread the gospel through the use of puppets as a powerful tool of education and ministry, in an imaginative and exciting manner, to touch lives and bring lasting results in Christ Jesus.
Practices are on alternating Saturdays from 2:00 to 3:00 pm for beginner youths and 3:00 to 4:00 pm for adults. If you are interested in joining this ministry, please register with Sis. Roberta Williams.
Future plans for the puppet ministry include ministering in the prison, hospital, communities, schools and the production of a weekly television program.
