Hello Bright Beginnings Families! It’s been a while since you’ve had a new post!
The short answer is that I took a technology break during Lent and have had a hard time getting back into the swing of all things technology. The long answer is a possible future blog post…
So, where are we now?
Wiggle Waggle Wednesdays has begun!
If you are unfamiliar with Wiggle Waggle Wednesdays, here is a quick overview:
All children in the Garden or Backyard classes who attend on Wednesday nights will be assigned a team (orange or blue) and will compete the entire summer to earn points for their team.
Attending Service: 1 point
Wearing Their Team Color: 2 points
Winning Games Played Each Week: 3 points
Bringing a Friend: 5 points
Memorizing the Lord’s Prayer: 10 points
Memorizing Each Month’s Bible Verse: 10 points
Being Able to Recite All Four at the End of Summer: Priceless (and 20 points)
You can help your child by making sure they attend Bright Beginnings on Wednesday nights, being willing to transport an extra friend or two, reminding them to dress in their team color (anything from hair accessories and hats to shirts and socks count) and working with them to memorize the Lord’s Prayer and verse of the month at home!
June: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1
July: “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalm 129:14
August: “This is love for God to obey His commands.” 1 John 5:3
The Lord’s Prayer: “Our Father, in Heaven, holy is Your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven . Give us this day our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for Yours is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory forever. Amen
We will be playing our games either in Kid City or in the grassy area just outside Bright Beginnings. If you have any concerns about your child being in either of these two areas during service, please let me know.
Our children enjoyed creating and performing their team cheers a couple weeks ago as we kicked off Wiggle Waggle Wednesdays.
The following week they completed an obstacle course to earn points for their team.
And tonight we will be painting with ice!
I can’t wait to see our children’s artistic interpretations of Genesis 1:1. Hope to see you there!
If your child has yet to attend a Wednesday evening this summer, there’s always room for more on our teams, so come join us!
See you soon,
