Summer Kidville News

Kidville classes have had a successful run during this school year. Dedicated teachers and helpers have taught and tended kids in a variety of ways in Noah’s Park & Ride (newborn through age three), Fun Factory (age three through kindergarten), and Uptown (first through fifth grades). During the Spring quarter we added KidSpace, a special class just for fifth-graders. Directed by Tary and Chris Jenkins, this practical program was designed to help kids transition confidently in to middle school and into church youth group by equipping them in the basic beliefs of their Christian faith.

Currently we are gearing up for our summer Kidville programs. We want to give our regular teaching staff the summer off, but we also want to offer a quality program for all kids, both Saturday night and Sunday morning. Nearly 70 slots need to be filled to staff each class for the entire summer. We are currently over halfway to our goal and it looks like we will be able to run the summer program at the level we would like. If you have not yet seen what areas of service are available in the Kidville area for this summer, please check out the flyer in the Welcome Center. Your help is needed, even if you do not consider yourself a teacher. And if your kids are part of this program, we strongly encourage you to help out a few times this summer. I believe you will find joy and satisfaction in sharing your love of Jesus with our wonderful Kidville Citizens.

Next weekend for Father’s Day kids will have a unique opportunity to get together in the Fellowship Hall during regular class times and create a gift for someone special in their life. The design team is Ed and Candy Sanders; I know kids will have fun and parents will be delighted! Be sure your child is part of this end-of-the-year event.
