Rock Climbers (preschool service) Bible App for Kids

March 1 Rock Climbers (preschool service) will be starting a new curriculum! It’s based on the Bible App for Kids and we’re pretty excited about it! If you haven’t already, download the Bible App for Kids and if you want to get a head start on the Bible story for March, we’ll be studying “A Test in the Desert” about when Jesus was tempted, but chose to do what was right!

Awana registration is open

Awana will be starting Wednesday, September 7 at 6:30pm. Awana is an extraordinary club that teaches kids the Gospel and trains them to serve Jesus. Kids work through handbooks and receive awards as they memorize Bible verses, answer questions about the Bible and live out godly lives!

We have Cubbies for preschool and 4K kids with Sparks and T&T for K-6th graders. The Awana leaders are excitedly anticipating the awesome year we’ll have in Awana! Don’t miss out! Fill out the Awana Registration Formand turn it in at church along with payment to reserve your spot in Awana!

Here’s a little more information on the Awana program: Awana info 2014 2015. And if that doesn’t answer your questions please contact Pastor Laura through email or on the phone at church 715-341-4640.

God’s Promises

For the next 2 months in Kids Rock (elementary service: Sunday 10am) we’re learning about God’s awesome promises.  We’re also learning that God ALWAYS keeps his promises.  We’re learning something similar in our series on Hope in Awana (elementary: Wednesday 6:30pm) as we wrap up the year.  Our Awana verse is Hebrews 10:23 “Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promises.”

And for your viewing pleasure here’s an awesome music video from Hillsong Kids that sings our verse for Kids Rock: 2 Corinthians 1:20.  Enjoy!

Welcome to Highland Kids!

Register Here: https://registration.campbrain.com/Portal/Login.aspx?H=SpencerLakeYouthCamp&G=815 Create a new account or use your username and password from previous years.

Now for those of you who want to know more details:

Summer camp is an awesome experience for kids going into 3rd-6th grade!  Kids have awesome encounters with God and grow closer to him through daily devotions with their cabin mates, morning sessions, and worship services in the evenings.  And they have a BLAST on the campgrounds swimming, tubing, playing team sports, visiting the snack stand and camp store, making crafts and so much more.

It’s an extraordinary experience.  We will be attending Week 5 of camp, Kids Camp 1 Monday, August 4-Friday, August 8.  The cost is $190 for camp registration plus $10 for gas money and other incidentals bringing it to a total of $200.  This cost will cover all meals, lodging, and camp activities.  It’s a pretty phenomenal price, especially if you compare it to other summer camps.  The only thing not covered in this is spending money for the souvenir store and snack stand (kids usually bring $10-$20).  We will do a fundraiser in June to help bring the cost for camp down and please don’t let finances be the reason your kids don’t go to camp.  Talk to me and we can work something out.  I want as many kids to attend as possible!  It truly is an amazing, life changing week for many.  Pay only the $43 deposit when you register online, plus the cost of camp tshirts or DVDs you order.

Please register as soon as you can to ensure we get best housing assignments and can appropriately plan counselors for the week.  If you have any questions about camp, please get in touch with Pastor Laura through email or give her a call at church 715-341-4640.
