Children’s Program: MIND GAMES
All the children will love a variety of ridiculously fun games designed to make them think. We will incorporate some art into the series! Children ages 4-6th grade are encouraged to join us as we learn more about important Bible points!
*With God nothing is impossible
A different Bible point is taught each night of the series; games are related to this Bible point. The children’s program is held in the children’s chapel, following supper on Wednesday nights.
