Why is it that every summer I think it will be relaxing and less crazy and that I will have some time to catch up, but then without fail EVERY summer is more insane than the entire school year!? It’s honestly like I develop amnesia every year in May. Someone please just tell me in advance that next summer is going to be stupid-busy, like the kind of busy that you need a nap when you think about it – kind of busy. OK?
So, yes. It was busy. That is why I haven’t been keeping you updated. I am grateful for my routine. In this moment, I love my routine so much that I wish I could kiss it! Kids are back in school (yes!), Wednesday Night Activities have started back up, the Nursery/Preschool/Student Chapel renovation is complete, and I have already made my hair appointment 2 months in advance (just more evidence of how much I love my routine and how desperately I just want to be ready and prepared – yes, even when the gray starts to show again!)
Before I give updates on all that is coming up in Kids Ministries, let me just show you what we did this summer:
I am so proud of this renovation. I cannot begin to tell you the amount of hours, blood, sweat and tears that went into this. I am forever grateful to those of you that poured your energy and love into making it
beautiful perfect.Thank you ABC! This nursery says: “We love your kids, we care about EVERY detail, and we want you to feel at home here.”
With the renovation came our new Automated Check-In System. I am excited about this addition because it helps to increase our security. We are still learning the new system, but each week it gets a bit faster. Thank you for your patience!
In addition to the renovation, Kid’s Ministries had a packed summer schedule with trips to the zoo, an epic Water Gun Fight and Welcome Back Party with a bouncy house!
And now we are back to the routine.
For today, I will update on what is happening in Kid’s Church. Keep checking back for updates in other areas of ABC Kids Ministries.
We started a new series in Kid’s Church on Sunday called “Heroes of Mega City.”
This will be a great series. They will be learning valuable lessons from stories in the bible, if you would like to get a glimpse click Here. And NEXT Sunday they can come to church dressed as their favorite Super Hero! If your child comes to church dressed in their costume, please take a picture and email it to me. I would love to put some pictures together throughout this series.
Here is a picture of me as my favorite Super Hero.
I was feeling pretty awesome in this picture. Kind of like I do now that I am back to the routine!
