Children’s Ministry News
Do you ever get so excited about something each year that when it’s over you start planning for the next time it comes around? Maybe it’s a special vacation or family reunion. It could be a special sporting event or activity like camping season. In children’s ministry it really is the entire summer! Each year when the summer is over we immediately start thinking about and planning the next summer, and this year is no different.
We love what happens at church on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights, but what happens in the summer becomes an incredible boost of energy.
Before the summer gets fully underway, we prepare for The Best Egg Hunt In Town! April 15th at noon will be super fun! The prizes will be bigger, the organization will be better, and the team will be ready. We are collecting eggs and candy all month long. No peanuts please! Next, comes Mother’s Day, Graduation, and Father’s Day!
Finally, the time we are most excited about… SUMMER! By the time we reach June we have already begun building the set for VBS and kids have already signed up for church camp. The dates for Day Camp are June 19-22. It is geared for children 5-8 years old. At the end of summer comes our 7/11 camp for children 7-11 years old. This camp is an overnight camp set for July 23-28! (Special discount codes are available by emailing Matt@tatescreek.org). We are expecting a HUGE group of kids to join us for camp this year so make sure you sign up early!
Tucked right into the middle of camp weeks is our favorite week of the year… Vacation Bible School. Our theme this year is Jungle Safari (how fun is that?) We will learn that God is our Creator, Protector, Provider, Savior, and King. The dates for VBS are July 9-13!!
If you are reading this and think we are crazy… we are! We love spending this time with your children and helping them grow! Contact Matt Lee to join the teams for VBS or Egg Hunt, ask questions, get involved, and help a child grow!
