Come prepared for a great week of fun and growth!
You will start the day with everyone together in the worship space to sing, have fun, and watch some skits and videos about the day's message.
You will then rotate through different activities: see a dramatic presentation of the day's message, make a craft that reminds you of that message, eat some great snacks, and play some fun games!
You'll then come back together with everyone in the worship space, revved up for some for some more singing, skits, and fun!
Preschoolers will be grouped together and remain in one location where the activities will be brought to them. Children must be potty-trained :).
You must fill out one form per child.
