Kid’s Quest Families,
Hey!! Holy Week is next week!! That was fast! As most of you know there is not going to be an Egg Hunt this year. Please pass the word and invite all of your friends to come to service on Sunday April 16th to our “Road to the Resurrection” Party! It is going to be impactful and FUN!!! I still need a ton of help to make this great, sign up in the foyer this Sunday!
I am also attaching some Holy Week devotionals so that you can guide your family through the Holy Week and what it is all about. Get together in this season and celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
ON another note here is a list of dates to fill out that empty calendar of yours, (wink,wink).
April 16th is Resurrection Sunday!! We will be having a celebration for our
children in the activity center during the services. “Road to Resurrection” an interactive experience of the Holy Week is going to be amazing!!! We will need a ton of help to pull this off with decorating, games and helping our children understand the true meaning of Resurrection Sunday.
April 19th Awanas and Pioneer Clubs, Jump House and pizza night!!-- This is the night where we will have jump houses, pizza and fun. All the adults are invited to the concert of prayer that will be held in the sanctuary.
April 22nd Love Stockton “Go” Project—We will be supporting Salvation Army this time around. We are encouraging families of ALL ages to get involved in this event. The kids will have an opportunity to be involved by creating some cards to be handed out; parents you can help too! So sign-up when the announcement is made!
April 30th – Be on the look-out for our SSB announcements!!! During the summer
we want to appreciate our amazing teachers just a bit more by giving the summer to take some time to rejuvenate and possibly take a little vacation. So that they can be ready to go for the fall. It’s at this time we run Summer Sunday Blast, a huge 10 week long VBS on Sunday mornings. We will need ALL hands on deck. When the insert in the bulletin comes out, fill it out and help with our summer program needs. It takes a whole Church to grow and build lifelong followers of Jesus.
May 7th—is Sunday School Teacher apperception day! (I made this up) So….Pass on your thanks and gratitude to your child’s teacher(s) when you check them in and out. They are amazing at spreading the word of Jesus to our children and pour into them weekly. I think they are incredible!!!May 13th—Mother Daughter Tea. Mother’s being your daughters for a grand time of sitting and drinking tea and canapés the place is TBA. Cost will be $5 per person. Spots are limited so keep an eye out for sign-ups.
Day Camp!!! Registration is HERE!!! Keep your eyes peeled for the release date. Spots fill up fast!
What are my Children learning?—If you’ve ever had this question that’s OK. I will let you know. Right now we are studying the Gospel Project. It is a chronological walk through the Bible. Every lesson points to Christ and how he is seen throughout the Bible. I have many additional resources available for families who want to dive deeper into these lessons at home. Shoot me an email and I will gladly pass on the information. Also on your child’s activety sheet is a “Family Connection” that you can look at and it will guide you through a quick family devotion that asks them questions about the lesson. Every classroom is covering the same topic so no need to be concerned about different stories in different age groups. How easy is that!?!
This Unit’s main point is “How can we obey God?” Answer: We trust God to give us strength to obey Him.
Be on the lookout for more opportunities to meet and network with more families of Quail and
opportunities to take a moment and spend some individualized time with your children.
YOU made it!! All the way to the bottom of the newsletter. The first 10 people to reply to me with the word “He is RISEN” because our Jesus is ALIVE, will receive a $2.50 gift card @ the Café on Sunday April 9th, 2017.
Giving Thanks to HIM,
Director Children’s and Family Ministries
