KIDS Club begins September 13th

 

Kids Club for K thru 5th grade will begin every Wednesday afternoon starting September 13th from 4:30 until 6:45.

Bible Study – Bible study nurtures youth and children into intelligent, obedient, and biblically-informed discipleship. In grade level groups, each class uses a curriculum that is designed to meet their unique needs and learning capabilities.
Worship Skills – Worship is essential and central to the Christian community. In Worship Skills young people learn about worship and prepare to lead in the Sunday morning service of worship. This is typically done through singing, bell, or speaking choirs, drama, or movement and dance.
Recreation Play – Recreation Play allows  young people to experience great fun at the expense of no one else. They participate in games and active play, do crafts, or experience the hobby or special interest of a member of the congregation. When we reveal ourselves in play, we strengthen friendships, and when conflicts occur, we practice our Child of God theology.
Family Time – Family Time provides a joyous, intergenerational celebration of personhood over a shared meal as young people experience being part of the family of God. Young people are assigned to tables along with one or two adults who act as “table parents.” The group around the table becomes a family as they share meals together throughout the year. Food is served family style. Conversation is purposeful. Life is celebrated!IF YOU LIKE, PARENTS AND OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS, PLEASE JOIN US FOR DINNER– Just call the Church Office at 341-3300 for a reservation.
