Wear your team color night

We announced last night at Kids' Club that next week, Wednesday, February 3, is "Wear your Team Color" night! You can go crazy with it or be a bit more conservative...but you definitely want to wear your team color from head to toe! Start planning those outfits now--this could be interesting! We sent out an email with the list of teams in case you want to know who's on what team...leave a comment if you want the list, but didn't get it, and we'll get that to you asap.

What happened at Kids' Club last night...

Thousands and thousands of dollars worth of "gold" were handed out last night for kids who brought their Bibles and said their verses! It was a close race, but the red team managed to pull out the victory over the blue team.

Don't forget that you can say this week's verse (and the answer to the question!!!) on Sunday for $2,000 extra for your team. You can also say all the week's questions and verses at Kids' Club on Wednesday nights...that will really add up as the weeks go on!

We had 7 kids say their verse this past Sunday:
From the Blue Team:
Daniel, Joseph, and Michael
From the Red Team:
Josh, Cheyenne, Hannah, and Tyler
Way to go Gold Rushers!

This week's verse--January 27, 2010

Remember that you must learn the answer to the question AND the verse/reference!
Q: What is man’s chief purpose?
A: Man’s chief purpose is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.
[Revelation 4:11] Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.

This week's verse

Q: What does the Bible tell me?

A: The Bible tells me what to believe about God and what He requires of me.

(Micah 6:8) He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

We're doing the verses a bit differently this semester. We are going to be learning verses all related to the same topic so that by the end of the semester the kids will have 12 verses memorized all relating to one thing.

Instead of a catechism, we are asking the kids to memorize the answer to a question. The worker will ask the question and the kids will need to say the answer and the verse. Hopefully this will help them keep things straight when they have more verses to say.

Another change is that we are only going to have the kids say the current week's verse on Sunday. They can still say all the verses on Wednesday, but only that week's verse on Sunday.

There are more changes I'll let you know about in the upcoming days, and I'll put the teams up here so you can what team your kids are on. So be looking for more information this week!

Thank you for the opportunity to minister to your children and hopefully your family, as a whole. We count it a privilege and take it very seriously.

Exciting things coming your way...

Just wanted to let you know I was in Green Bay today and picked up some things for kids' club and the new theme that we're introducing this Wednesday. Brent's working on getting some things ready, too, so that we can have an exciting time letting the kids know what's coming up this semester. Miss Rachel's working on a new missionary to introduce to the kids,too. We have some procedure changes we're making, but we're keeping it all under wraps until this Wednesday night. I'm apologizing now in case the kids drive you crazy all the way home from church on Wednesday night...that's all I'm saying...OH YEAH!!!
