WEDNESDAYS@GRACE Kids Sessions – Fall Session

 

It’s like VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL….. on WEDNESDAYS!

Wednesdays@Grace is open to all area children ages 3 (potty-trained) through fifth grade. 

Each six week session stands alone and children can sign up for one or both sessions.  


Registration is available online, forms are available in the narthex, or print a form here.  

 

 

Emojis are a fun way to quickly express our emotions with others.  The Bible teaches us that our emotions are a gift from God, that He has a purpose for all of them, and that we can express them in a good way. During each week of our Fall 2017 Session of Wednesdays@Grace, we will focus on a different emoji, its corresponding emotion, and a related bible story.  Our Fall session will run for 6 weeks on Wednesday evenings:  Sept. 27 – Nov. 1.  The program takes place 5:30 – 7:30 and will begin & end with a worship time in the sanctuary.  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.  Registration now available online OR forms available in the narthex. 

 

Please note that additional Wednesdays@Grace sessions will be offered throughout the year, including a late Fall session beginning Nov. 8.  Children are welcome to sign up for one or more sessions.  Those session dates and themes will be announced at a later date.

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.
