Dear Kidventure Families!
This week in our Elementary classes (K-5th grade), we kicked off our brand new theme, Berry Blast Theme Park. What better way to start learning about the Fruits of the Spirit than to begin with goodness? As we learned in 1 Samuel 16, the goodness in our hearts is important to God! It doesn’t matter if we get the best grades in school, have the most friends, or even how we dress. It is what is on the inside that counts. And when we’re full to the brim with goodness, we can please God in what we think, say, and do.
Our 5th graders got the special treatment this week! During their small group time, Kia and 15 fifth graders had a blast with a pizza party! We got to know each other more by playing the Name Game, and some of them even got to play another game called Criminal Minds. Don’t worry, though, we didn’t teach any of them to become actual criminals. The main reason the 5th graders had a pizza party is because we would like them to get involved in helping us pull off Kidventure every week. One way they can do this is through joining our Action Team. Each week we sing songs that have different motions to go with them and we are asking the 5th graders to help us in leading the rest of the kids. So, encourage your young leaders to be at Kidventure to help out! They might just find that they have the time of their life doing it!
In preschool, we continued our mission in “Ten Hut Jr.” as we learned we can be happy because God loves us! Mardy, our friend from the Help Corp, showed us how David was so happy because of God’s love for him. One preschool girl I talked to after church had a huge smile on her face and told me she was happy because God loves her! Don’t forget that you can be happy each day knowing that God loves you! Join us again this week as we learn about sharing with others.
Parents, don’t forget you can view/download these devotionals to go further in depth with the lesson as a family:
Pizza with Pastor Dustin is coming to a Pizza Ranch near you! Our goal is simple – to pack out Pizza Ranch! Mark your calendars for Monday, October 18th at the Dilworth Pizza Ranch from 5-8pm OR Monday, October 25th at the Fargo Pizza Ranch from 5-8pm. Pastor Dustin and the Kidventure Staff will be at Pizza Ranch with prizes and fun that you won’t want to miss out on! Use this flier to print off and bring with you as well as pass it along to invite your friends to join us!
We are also looking for volunteers to help us bus the tables that night at Pizza Ranch. We have two shifts each night, 5:00pm to 6:30pm (Shift 1) and 6:30pm to 8:00pm (Shift 2). Please reply and let us know if you’d be willing to help out for one shift.
See you Sunday!
