Go! Children’s Ministry Update

Go! Children’s Ministry Update from Lynne Focht for Spring 2014:

The staff and team members of GO! Children’s Ministry are excited to serve your family by providing quality Sunday School classes. Each week we strive to cultivate an environment where your children are safe, happy, and engaged in learning and activities.

“GO!” stands for “loving God, loving Others” and we try to instill these two main principles into everything we do.

Mark your calendars for the following important dates coming up over the coming Spring weeks:

Children’s Ministry Pizza Party (during regular service)
Sunday March 30th

As an incentive for attending Sunday School, the GO! kids have been adding links to a paper chain, with the promise of a pizza party when it reaches the front of the church. They are excited to watch it grow and have been looking forward to the party for some time.

GO Children’s Ministry Meeting
Sunday April 6th

This carry-in meeting will be held in the café following the morning gathering. It is a great opportunity to join our enthusiastic team of volunteers! If you have a heart for kids and can make a once-a-month commitment, you might be just the role model we are looking for! Help make a difference in the life of a GO! kid this season!

Candy Collection
For Easter Sunday Egg Hunt

We are once again planning a spectacular Easter Egg hunt for the children and can use your help in our “Candy Drive.” We would gratefully appreciate your donations of candy or other small trinkets to fill our plastic eggs. We will be able to take donations until April 13th!

Splish Splash

Promotion Sunday 2013

Promotion Sunday will take place on August 4 celebrate the children who are “graduating” from the children’s department and those moving up to the next class. This year we will be having a “Wacky Water” theme. (Warning – you will get wet!) I am counting on as many volunteers as possible to pitch in and help. It is going to be awesome and the kids are so excited to have a special fun day!

Some activities for the day include:

  • Dimitri’s famous BBQ Ribs (1/2 rack baby back per person)
  • Water balloon and squirt gun wars
  • Giant inflatable water slide
  • Dunk tank
  • Bubbles for the youngest children
  • Games
  • Slip ‘n Slide

Please email directly at Lynne@spiritlifechurch.us or text at 937-418-4413 if I can count on you to help us make the day awesome! If you know someone who doesn’t currently volunteer with the children’s department but would still like to help out, please pass this on to them as well. The more help the better. I am hoping for a huge turnout!

Go! Children’s Ministry Update

Go! Children’s Ministry Update from Lynne Focht:

Superheros in Training

Welcome to our special superhero training facility – aka GO! Children’s ministry. I am so excited to present the unit for this month – “Becoming a Superhero for God”. Your kids will be learning character developing lessons, such as being truthful, forgiving others, and standing up for what is right. These biblical principles are presented in a fun and engaging way, balanced with superhero crafts and games, as well as snack time.

Your children are very special to us and we enjoy every Sunday with them. We are so pleased to be able to partner with you in their spiritual teaching!

What’s New in the Nursery

Our youngest members will be engaged in a unit that focuses on what we do at church. They will learn that at church we sing, we pray, we thank God, and we are friends. These lessons include songs, hands-on activities and plenty of play time! Thank you for trusting our capable hands with you precious babies!

Pre-K to 1st Grade

We are presenting Bible lessons in a fun and age-appropriate way to this special age group! We encourage play time, building social skills, games, arts and crafts, and story time. We also have a special classroom friend – Ziggy the mailman – who brings a letter each week to the children.

This month we will focus on never giving up doing good work, telling the truth, giving generously of ourselves, and following through on what we say.

Kids will be building their characters while learning special Bible stories!

Pre-K to 1st Grade

Talk about Superheroes! What a great group of kids we have in our oldest class!

We are excited to be teaching them to stand up for what is right, forgive others, be humble, and what it means to be a loyal person and follower. We love our older kids and encourage plenty of time for building friendships through games, crafts, and snack time!

Go! Children’s Ministry

The following is a blog from Lynne Focht, Spirit Life Church’s new children’s ministry director.

Children’s ministry in a word – go! – loving God, loving Others.

Welcome to Spirit Life Church’s Children’s Ministry!

We are pleased and grateful to have the opportunity to minister to your child. We count it a great privilege and look forward to developing a relationship with each and every parent!

We believe that God has given the first responsibility of children to parents; therefore, we see our role as a partnership with parents in leading their children into a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ.

We believe learning should be fun! Each week we strive to present the message of Jesus in fun and creative ways. Your child will experience teaching that is age-appropriate and fun filled.

Go represents the idea of teaching our children that God loves them through innovative and exciting activities that are sure to be fun-filled! At Spirit Life Church we promise:

  • A safe environment from our new sign-in procedures to our practices in monitoring your children. We strive to maintain clean playrooms that are welcoming in every way!
  • A child-centered approach to delivering the message. We divide our kids into three age groups to best meet their needs. The curriculum follows a new theme each month that children can appreciate and meets them at their level. We want our kids to love Sundays and know that they are welcome at church!
  • Variety – we provide a variety of activities centered on the lesson theme. We love arts and crafts, games, music, snacks and even science experiments. We like to keep the children engaged in activities that teach, inspire, build teamwork and fellowship, and bring His word to our kids in a way in which they can relate.

Children’s ministry is one of the most important endeavors of our church and we want nothing but the best for our kids. We are staffed by an amazing group of volunteers who truly love what they do each Sunday in the Children’s Department. So come check us out—we can’t wait to show you the great things happening in go!
