Kids Club: Pre-K through 5th Grade

Each Wednesday night the children begin with a praise time at 6:30 p.m. followed by a Bible lesson and how to apply it to their lives. There will also be Bible memorization, recreation and snack time. Awards will be given out for perfect attendance and Bible Verse memorization at the end of the 12 week session. After 3 consecutive weeks of attendance a child will receive a Kids Club t-shirt. Each night Kids Club finishes with a praise time ending at 8 p.m. We have 3 fun nights planned for this fall—Sept 4 is Sandals/Flip Flops night, Sept 25 is Grandparents night and Oct 16 is Hat night. The Kids Club staff is looking forward to sharing God’s Love and the salvation of His Son Jesus Christ with the children. We wish to thank all the parents, grandparents and others that are involved in bringing the children each Wednesday Night. In this fall session the offerings that the children bring will go towards Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Shoebox. Last year Kids Club sponsored over 50 shoeboxes. It was a great experience for each child to have a chance in not only bringing an offering, but to actually help pack shoeboxes. If your child/children have never attended Kids club, this fall would be a great time to have them start and I know they will be blessed in many ways. In His service, Pastor Bob Hart (309-212-0846),
