It’s one of the biggest announcements of the year! Children wait expectantly as July approaches. But the time has come and we are very excited to unveil this years theme.
“Follow the Clues”
It’s a week of being detectives searching for the clues, to solve the mystery of the man who beat death! We’ve had some great themes over the years, from space, pirates, knights, even crazy scientists! There’s been puppets and skits and high tech videos (well sort of hi-tech). Each year has been jam packed with fun and creative ideas. And while kids (and leaders) always have the most amazing adventure, the best part is that each and every theme centres around our teaching about Jesus. This year will be no exception!
That’s why Kids Holiday Club is so important and why I want to ask you to help. For what we are doing is not just giving kids a good time. For church families this gives your children one of their best holiday experiences. It makes Jesus a normal part of their life and holidays in a way that is extremely positive.
Meeting day after day means it’s easy to build a deeper picture from God’s Word as the week goes on. And for the many who come from outside our church, its a chance to introduce them and their families to Jesus – and to pick up from last years club, or from what they have learnt in scripture or Kids Plus.
Three things you can do:
1) Sign up your kids (and grandkids, nieces nephews neighbours) and sign them up early. Last year we were close to capacity and it always helps if the regulars are in.
2) Sign up yourself. One of my favourite parts of holiday club is working with so many others from Church. And whatever way you get involved you’ll be joining something of immense importance. From delivering brochures or preparing craft, to coming along during the week to lead a small group there is, as the saying goes, something for everyone!
3) Pray – in your Bible studies, with your families, in your quiet times. Pray that it’d be safe and fun and organised but most of all a clear message to the kids about Jesus their Lord.
