Over the past week I have been reflecting on the past year and the ups and downs that we have faced as a family. 2021 has been a challenging year overall, yet there have been great moments of joy too. Below are some of the my highlights from the children’s ministry this year.
We had a wonderful Spring Fling outside with Chick-Fil-A and hundreds and hundreds of eggs. I think every kid’s easter basket was overflowing with candy.
We were able to honor our kindergarten and 1st grade students with new Bibles. We had missed the Bible presentation in 2020, so it was exciting to give all our 1st graders their new Bibles too.
Summertime brought us a sense of normalcy and the children enjoyed Summer Bash with a 30 foot water slide!
Kingdom Camp was a hit and our children worked hard to memorize Psalm 23. We played lots of games and made some great crafts.
The kids participated in four Destination Unknowns. We surprised the kids by going to a trampoline park, Chuck-E-Cheese, bowling, and ice skating. These events were so much fun!
At Camp Maywood, our kids learned about mountain top experiences from the Bible.
Our children participated in Mini Mission Hometown where they completed service projects for Agape and made baskets for some families who needed encouragement. The children always do a great job with service projects which makes me so proud!
Back to School Bash was tons of fun and we jumped in the bounce houses until we were all exhausted.
Fall Festival was cold and rainy, but we still had a blast. It’s always fun to see the kids’ Halloween costumes.
Dinner with Santa was wonderful. This event always puts me in the Christmas spirit.
Exciting things are happening in the Children’s ministry. Make plans in 2022 to keep this ministry a priority for your family.
