All of life around us is as complex as it is inspiring. Life is incredible, it is beautiful, it is precious. This summer we will explore the wonder of God’s design. A design specifically created with us in mind. This year we are inviting all children to be a part of “Magnified” Vacation Bible School (VBS).
Magnified VBS will be a fun filled science experience presenting the Gospel’s truth as the answer for all life’s equations. Throughout the week Children will discover the wonder of God’s creation all around them. Special emphasis will be placed on God’s design and their role in his plan. Each night children will be exposed to live worship, God’s word, experience bible stories, participate in crafts, and some whacky science adventures too…and much, much more.
This year’s Magnified VBS will take place June 25th through June 28th from 6:30 to 8:45. A free dinner will be provided to children and their families participating from 5:45-6:15pm each night. Please register your child (4yrs old through 6th grade) and consider volunteering so you will not miss out on our mission to have an eternal impact in young lives. Child registration will begin May 20th. All early registrants will be eligible for random drawings beginning May 27th. Children younger than 4yrs old may attend with a parent.
On August 13th we officially resumed all Kids Church programming downstairs in our newly renovated children’s area aptly named the Crosswalk.
The Crosswalk has been designed as a city to demonstrate the uniqueness of God’s most special creation, His children. Each of us has been given gifts and talents to serve our Creator, for His purpose.
As believers we must be united in our efforts as a church body to win the world for Jesus. By taking steps with Christ as our personal savior, together in our relationships with one another, the world may see and know Him.
The Crosswalk incorporates many new features aimed at instructing children, providing leadership opportunities, and welcoming the community into God’s neighborhood.
We have many things planned for this coming school year at the Crosswalk for High Five Ministries. We are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. We have listed several things in this month’s edition of the Newsletter to help keep you informed of all the things coming up around the corner. Please do not hesitate to contact Pastor Dan regarding any of the information listed.
Crosswalk Service Schedule Change
Sunday School services are offered to children at 8:00 and 11:00am. Our Kids Church program is at 9:30am.
High Five Children’s Ministry seeks to help children (4 years old through 6th grade) to understand who God is and his plan for them through their faith as believers.
When children try to accomplish something that has taken a great deal of effort a high five to their open hand can mean a great deal. It is a sign of recognition, encouragement and acceptance. God is the eternal source of encouragement for us all. God is the biggest giver of high fives that there could ever be. His hands were held out on the cross, pierced for our transgressions, in love.
The goal of High Five Ministries is to reach the lost and build the saved through 5 Basic biblical principles represented by an outstretched Hand.
Principle I: God is the Savior for the world. John 3:16-17
Principle II: God is our personal Savior and friend. Mathew 22:37
Principle III: We are all special in God’s eyes. Mathew 22:39
Principle IV: God and his word help us to make the right choices in life. Exodus 20:1-17
Principle V: We need to share God’s Love with everyone Mathew 28:19-20
We want children to know the following core truths revealed in scripture for each of us:
God Created You
God Loves You
God Has A Plan For You
God Has A Purpose For You
God Wants You To Live The Destiny He Has For You
We emphasize the parent’s involvement in the ministry at all levels. Please contact Pastor Dan Blakely at (816) 279-2090 or to find out more about Grace’s High Five ministry or how you may get involved.
