Dear Kidventure Families!
What beautiful weather we have this week it looks like! I hope you’re able to spend some time enjoying the outdoors this week! We had another GREAT Sunday at Prairie Heights and in Kidventure. We had 137 kids check-in to our classes on Sunday morning, with almost 30 preschoolers and another 30 walkers (1 and 2 year olds)! Our average for number of kids in September was 120! WOW! Each one of those children represents a life that matters to God and matters to me! Thanks for making Kidventure a priority in your home and I pray that your time with us on Sunday is truly beneficial, uplifting, and FUN!
In preschool this week we continued our mission in “Ten Hut Jr.” as we learned to be kind to others even when they are mean to us. Mardy, our friend from the Help Corp, showed us how David was kind to others even when they were mean to him. We should learn to follow David’s example and treat everyone with respect, even when they are mean to us and it’s difficult to be nice. Join us again next week as we learn why we can be happy!
Our Elementary kids (K-5th grade) wrapped up their last week with the Wild West theme, “On the Trail.” We learned that God has plans for us when we obey him. God calls us to become all sorts of people, from reporters, pastors, teachers, and even police officers. No matter who we are, we have the choice to obey God and follow his plan! You won’t want to miss this Sunday as we are beginning a BRAND NEW UNIT called “Berry Blast Theme Park” where we will be on a thrill ride through the Fruits of the Spirit.
Attention ALL 5th GRADERS!!! THIS Sunday October 3rd, 2010 we are having a Pizza Party during Kidventure during both services for all 5th graders with food and fun games!! Invite a friend or two and show up for Kidventure this Sunday morning.

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! I will send out an e-mail with more information and an invitation for you to pass around!
Finally, I would like to introduce to you one of our NEWEST members of the Kidventure Team! Kia Griffey is a college student studying children’s ministry at Southwestern Assemblies of God University. She loves tennis, football, volleyball, reading, and baking. She has a passion to see children connected with their Savior Jesus Christ and to love and encourage them to be all God has created them to be! Kia describes her passion like this, “Really, I just want people to know the incredible love that God has for them, and that He loves them where they’re at right now…God still sees each person as priceless.” Kia will be serving as our Elementary Director – all of our kids Kindergarten through 5th grade will be seeing lots of her downstairs on Sunday morning! She will be helping to improve our game rooms, make sure we have up to date materials and even helping us learn about God is some creative ways! I believe God has brought us this passionate, gifted young leader to continue to multiply our efforts to support and encourage children and families in our community!
See you Sunday!
