Children’s News 9-9-17

September is going to be a big start for us! I still NEED 2 volunteers!!! This would work out to only working 1 time a month! Scripts, recipes and directions are ALL PROVIDED!
-1st Wednesday Volunteer: Introduce the Bible Story and make a special snacks with the kids.
-2nd Wednesday Volunteer: Play the movie short and use Legos to recreate the story

Once September rolls around, our Wednesday schedule will look as follows:
September, October, November, January & February
1st Wed: Bible Story Introduction/Special Snack!
2nd Wed: Movie Clip/Legos
3rd Wed: Imagination Station/Craft night
4th Wed: College Rec Night!

This is also the kick-off for our fall mission focus. We are participating in the church-wide poverty study starting in September. Our kiddos will have 2 missions, one local one overseas.

For the local, we will be filling as many boxes as possible with snacks! We all know what it’s like to have these hungry children and how much these snacks can add up cost-wise. We’re going to fill as many boxes as we can for September and October to send to University Place. Our box is a big one, but we’re off to a good start!!!

For our overseas mission, we’re raising money to send with our College Group on their mission to the Dominican Republic with Filters of Hope. And guess what?!? We have a secret donor who is willing to match us dollar for dollar to $100. So that means if our kiddos can raise $100, it will automatically be doubled to $200!!! Think we can do it? I do!!! Look for our donation gauges in the Children’s Hall in September. The kiddos have already brought in $5… that means we have a $10 total!! What a fun start!

On Friday, September 8th from 6-8 p.m., we’ll have our next kiddo’s event – Tailgate and Skate! Plan on bringing your favorite tailgating food to share while we watch our favorite kiddos skate. Of course, parents are more than welcome to skate too!!

Looking forward to everything we’ve got in the “works” as we get “geared” up!
