Kingdom Kids Elementary-Aged Children
Surf Shack VBS takes place June 6 to 10 from 9:00 a.m. to noon for Kindergarteners through 6th graders. Year after year our VBS attracts hundreds of children from within our church and out in the community with its colorful decorations, fun games, cool crafts and super snacks.
This year promises to be just as exciting as our church is transformed into a rad surfers’ beach. Kids will catch the wave of God’s amazing love in every activity. Fifth and sixth graders spend the week in mission. In years past they have traveled to Tulsa to work at the food bank, they have helped clean the church buses, and other fun but helpful things.
There is no charge for Surf Shack VBS but we do ask that children be registered in advance. You may register your kids or sign up to volunteer by clicking here (and we do need a lot of volunteers!).
VBS does take a lot of volunteers and a lot of supplies! For a list of things we would love to have donated, please go to the Children’s Ministry page.
Our third annual Fine Arts Camp is open to elementary children from first grade up. For two weeks, from July 11 to July 24, children will work hard learning their parts for Kingdom Connection, a musical production where the Bible comes to life.
Your kids will discover talents they never knew they had through the direction of our Music Director, Linda Pollock. They will also learn more about God’s Word as they sing, dance and act their way through the production. And there is plenty of opportunity for parents to help with building sets and helping their children learn lines. The camp culminates in a performance before the entire congregation during our Sunday services on July 24. Watch for more details about when children will be evaluated for the different parts.
Summer Camps for Children
Three camps are available for elementary age children this summer. All are at beautiful Camp Egan near Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Children will spend one, two or three nights at camp depending on the age of the child. You may register for camp here. Susan Goins will be happy to answer any of your questions at 918-341-4580, ext. 325 or you may email her at email@example.com.
Generation Next Youth Summer Activities
Jaimie and Jennifer Willis, our Directors of Student Ministries, are in the planning stages of a fun-filled summer for junior high through graduated seniors. In addition to weekly activities there are two summer camping opportunities you need to know about:
Green County District Camp at Camp Egan runs from June 18 to 22. Teens grow closer in their relationship to Christ through small group encounters, worship services and having a lot of fun with their brothers and sisters in Christ.
Youth Force takes place June 26 to July 1. Our junior high students through graduated seniors will converge on the City of Owasso to spend a week in mission with teens from other churches. By day they will work for those who cannot make needed repairs on their own homes. They will forge relationships with each other and with the homeowners. In the evenings they will have fun fellowship activities and worship in their “God Squads.” For information on how to sign up, contact Jaimie or Jennifer. There will likely be opportunities for parents to work with the teens as “God Squad Leaders” or “Tech Angels.”
For information about these great opportunities or anything at all having to do with our Student Ministries program, please contact Jaimie at 918-341-4580, ext. 304 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Something for Everyone!
Children from kindergarten through high school will have opportunities this summer to learn more about the Bible, grow closer to Christ, or create lasting relationships with other Christians. Get your children signed up today!
