FINDING JESUS: Under the Sea

7 week session, January 11-February 22

Each week focuses on a different sea creature and connects to a bible lesson.  For example, the ocean floor is filled with beautiful starfish- too many to even count.  Kids will learn about God’s promise to Abram and how our blessings from God are more than we can count!

 

An email is sent each week with details on the menu and the bible content for the night.  35-40 children attended in Fall 2016.  Please join us!  J

 

 

 

 

BUILDING EASTER

6 week session, March 1 – April 5

 

We kick off on Ash Wednesday with a special lesson by Pastor Ken and some special building time with Lego© bricks! For the next four weeks, kids will learn 4 Bible lessons about the Easter story that they can easily remember every time they play with LEGO bricks - from Jesus’ prayer in the garden to the empty tomb on Sunday. Our 6th week will be a special Easter night -  more details will be sent to families as we get closer to the date. 

 

 

---------------------------------------------------------------- GENERAL INFORMATION --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

SCHEDULE:  Each evening runs 5:30 – 7:30 and will begin & end with a worship time in the sanctuary.  Sign in as early as 5:15.  Children will rotate through four stations each 20 minutes long:  Worship Skills, Bible Story, Dinner, and Recreation.  An offering will be taken each evening during the opening assembly to help cover the costs of the program.  

 

MORE INFO:  

Groups - Children will be grouped according to grade:  Preschool & PreK, Kindergarten & 1st Grade, 2nd & 3rd Grades, and 4th & 5th Grades.  Caring group guides will be with the children in their group the entire evening - from sign-in through sign-out.  

 

Opening & Closing Assemblies – This will be a time of energetic worship & prayer for all ages in the sanctuary.

  

Dinner - Typically dinner will be pizza, grapes, carrots,  lemonade or water, & dessert.  Children are welcome to bring their own packed dinner if they prefer.  A microwave is available.  The children will eat by grades, so that the youngest children will eat first.  Oldest kids will eat by 6:45, so they may need an after-school snack before coming!  

 

Bible Story -  Various interactive methods will be used to teach the lesson of the night.  

 

Worship Skills – Children will learn songs related to the session theme in preparation for the final program (to be held on a Sunday following the 5-week session).  Often this is done with singing & movement, but other worship skills options may include drama, dance, and bells or other instruments.  

 

Recreation – A fun game and/or craft will tie in to the lesson each week.
