Kids Club Recap!

During Kids Club Sunday our Vista Kids learned that we are called to be Faithful! Paul traveled looking for opportunities to share the Good News, even though it was sometimes not welcome.

We head the story of Paul and Silas in prison and freed by an earthquake that broke the prison door and chains. Paul and Silas could have escaped, but instead used the circumstances to witness to the jailer. They were faithful!

Our Vista Kids traveled out to the prayer garden and pulled weeds. Being faithful is hard work, but rewarding! We ended Kids Club by releasing ladybugs!

"I can endure all these things through the power of the one who gives me strength." (Philippians 4:13)

Mommy and Me!

We had a wonderful time camping indoor during yesterday morning's gloomy weather! The SON shone bright as we praised with bandanas, made wooden instruments that resembled grills, created glow snakes, and snacked on s'mores! We learned that God gives us courage and we don't have to be scared of things like bugs (which we made houses for) or the dark! We read the story of David and Goliath and ended with bubbles and parachute fun!

Don't miss out on our last Mommy and Me of the Spring! Mark your calendars for our water splash day on Friday, May 20 at 9:30 a.m.! It will be water fun day as we talk about the living water, Jesus! Wear clothes that can get wet and bring a towel as we splish splash through our bible story!
