Discovery Kids Summer
Our summer days have begun, and this Sunday is a Summer Friends Day! It will be a morning of making new friends within Discovery Kids and bringing new friends to experience an activity-based church experience! Discovery Kids (with the exception of the Chicks) will be joining together in two large groups with opportunities to play, learn, and craft indoors as well as go outside for group and partner games.
Trust us, you won't want to miss out on all the fun of our summer days, so stay up to date: take just a few minutes to keep reading, check for weekly email updates, and join us in beating the heat through these next few months!
Summer Friends Days
We want our kids at Summer Friends Day to have the space to make new friends at church and experience the Word of God more personally by hands-on and learning. To do this, the two younger classrooms will join as will the two older classes (classroom names are listed below). The Lambs and Cubs will start their time together in the Cubs area (the large piano room), while the Eagles and Colts will start their time together outside the Colts room on the grassy area. Half way through our time, the groups will switch. You will pick up your child in the opposite location of drop off - Lambs and Cubs on the outside grass and Eagles and Colts inside the large piano room. Don't worry, maps at the check-in table and teachers at classrooms will be helping us all get where we need to be!
Movie Day is a chance for children (and teachers) to rest while learning about God through featured Bible-based films! Like Summer Friends Day, the Lambs and Cubs will join as will the Eagles and Colts. The Lambs and Cubs will have the option of watching short films (like Veggie Tales) or playing with one another, and the Eagles and Colts will watch part of a full-length film.
Church In The Park
A Discovery Church tradition known as Church In the Park will be revved up with new toys, games, and activities for families to enjoy together! Teachers will not be scheduled to help on these mornings in hopes of providing plenty of opportunities in and between families to connect over playful fun. Everything will be out and ready, so come geared up for a good time!
Joining Sunday is to encourage spiritual maturity in the older children in hearing from our pastor while learning alongside their parents! Lambs, Cubs, and Eagles will have their classes as normal, as to keep a bit of consistency through the non-regular patterns of summer schedules. Colts will join service with a clipboard filled with sermon-related activity pages and will participate in the worship and teaching as their parents do.
Serve This Summer!
As we prepare our hearts and calendars for this upcoming season, we want to invite you to participate in all of the happenings of Discovery Kids as a temporary teacher. As the majority of our teachers are college students have left for the summer, the ministry will only have the ability to thrive with the passion and time of parents and others with the desire to invest into our children. Prayerfully consider serving the children this summer - the little smiles and hugs are worth it!
