Welcome to Kids for Jesus 2013-2014! This fall, children in grades one through five are invited to be a part of this year’s Christmas musical: Christmas in Reverse. It is going to be a lot of fun --- learning new songs with actions, practicing the play, learning Scripture verses --- and playing games!
If your child(ren) wants to take part in the Christmas program on December 15, 2013, they need to come on Wednesday evenings to Kids for Jesus. There will also be a pre-school program for children ages 3 years through kindergarten. The Christmas musical will be presented to family & friends on Sunday evening, December 15, 2013.
The second half of the Kids for Jesus year (January – April 2014) will be more traditional and follow the curriculum The Story. There will be skits, music, games, and lessons in the classroom for smaller groups.
Kids for Jesus will begin on Wednesday, September 18, 2013. Wednesday nights at Word of Life will look like this:
6:00-7:15 Kids for Jesus (KFJ)
6:15-7:15 Adult Bible Studies
6:00-7:30 Junior High Youth Group
7:30-9:00 Senior High Youth Group
Every week we will provide a family friendly meal in the half hour leading up to Wednesday night activities at WOL. Pizza, subs, chicken, hot dogs and more will be on the menu. Come and enjoy a meal without the hassle! Get to know other families and make new friends.
There is no charge for the meal, but your support is greatly appreciated as a free will offering is collected. We try to keep the cost of dinner around $3-$4 per person. Parents, please make sure that your children under 13 are properly supervised during the dinner time and before/after KFJ.
Reminders will be sent out, but please take note that there will be no KFJ on the following dates: October 16, November 27, December 25 and January 1.
All children need to check in at the registration table before the Kids for Jesus night begins. It is important that we have a phone number of a parent in case of any emergency. Friends are welcome to join your child(ren) at Kids for Jesus. Have your child’s friend check in at the registration table with them when they come. We have enclosed two forms regarding contact information that should be filled out and returned to the church.
In order that we may provide the maximum amount of safety and security for your child(ren), we need you to come into the building to pick up your child(ren) at the end of each Wednesday night. The parking lot tends to be a busy place with cars coming and going, so please come inside the building to pick up your child(ren) at 7:15 P.M. Together we can decrease the risk of an accident.
In His Service,
