October is nearly here and it sees the start of a brand new series for Kids Church in both Richmond and Barnard Castle.
Here is all you need to know as parents for the upcoming few weeks.
Starting on Sunday 4th October is the awaited return of one of our Movie Madness series. We love Movie Madness in Hero Factory. It is a chance to watch a clip of a film and see what we can learn from it, linking it back to the bible and seeing what God says about it all. We are excited that this series is based on the Pixar film HOME.
This month we see the start of a different series in Richmond and Barnard Castle, this now means if you attend both services your children will be learning different things. Starting on Sunday in Barnard Castle our new series is ‘The Story of…’ each week we will be looking at a different story in the bible and seeing what we can learn from it. The story will be told by some amazing videos that have been put together by the incredible Kids on the Move. We are so excited that we have this incredible resource that we can use for our kids.
A few things to know:
Every week all children take part in connect groups. In that time the leaders spend time chatting to your children about what we have been talking about and then working through a work sheet with the kids. I know sometimes the worksheets can seem tedious and you probably put them straight in the bin, but as much as these are for our kids they are also made for you as parents to see what we have been talking about. Please if you get chance can you spend some time looking at the sheet and talking to your children throughout the week about what we are learning about. If you do I would love to hear all about it and what your kids had to say.
Every week a lot of children are not getting signed in. All children who are attending Hero Factory need to be signed in. If you think your child will not be attending Hero Factory and staying with you please don’t sign them in, just sign them in if they decide to come. Recently we have been seeing a lot of children not being signed in or children being signed in and then not coming. For fire safety only sign your child in if they are attending, if you do sign them in and they change their mind just pop up and let us know.
I wanted to finish this post by letting you know that our incredible kids across both services gave £263.77 in the offering. This is unbelievable and has completely blown my mind. Our kids are the best.
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to message me. I will be happy to help.
