wiggle waggle wednesdays are here!

Tonight was the opening night of our 3rd Annual Wiggle Waggle Wednesdays!

047

Over this summer the Garden and Backyard kids will be participating in Wiggle Waggle Wednesdays; it’s basically our own version of Kid City’s Wet & Wacky Wednesdays, just a little less wacky and a lot less wet!

We will be playing exciting games (think elementary gym class…remember parachute day?!), worshiping with music and movement (think drums and other fun percussion instruments) and putting God’s Word in our hearts (memorization!).

Each child in the Garden and Backyard will be assigned a team (either Orange or Blue) and will be competing all summer to earn points for their team.

Attending Service:  1 point

Wearing Your 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 are at church, being willing to transport a few extra friends, reminding them to dress in their team color (anything from hair accessories and hats to colored shirts and socks are great), and working with them on memorizing the Lord’s Prayer and verse of the month at home!

June:  “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.”  Deuteronomy 6:5

July:  “Do to others as you would have them do to you.”  Luke 6:31

August:  “Children obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.”  Colossians 3:20

The Lord’s Prayer:  “Our Father, in Heaven, hallowed be 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 Thine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory forever.  Amen

Tonight we had fun creating cheers for our teams.

Thanks in advance for making our summer of Wiggle Waggle Wednesdays a success!  We’re looking forward to Wiggling and Waggling with your kiddos!

* We will be playing most of our games in Kid City (as they are out on the baseball field getting wet and being wacky) and we may play outside a few times in the grassy area outside Bright Beginnings.  If you have any concerns about your children being in either of these two areas during service, please let Ryanne know.
