Summer Family Challenge

Click on the graphic to get the information.

The Summer Family Challenge is an exciting “choose your own adventure” family activity that provides parents and children with many different options for a memorable, fun, and faith-filled summer. The idea is simple: Each family receives an 8-page Challenge Guide with various assignments  (easy to attach to the fridge). Then, they work together to complete as many of the challenges as they want. Each challenge has a point value, ranging between 10 points and 350 points. At the end of the summer, the families with the most points win a special prize! Everyone wins something! Most importantly have fun!  Questions? Email Lia at


Weekly Kids Worship Videos

This month is all about creativity! Creativity is imagining what you could do because you’re made in God’s image. God’s creativity is indescribable. It has no limits! So, this week, take time to look around at all the things God created. Take a look in the mirror, too! After all, you were made in God’s image. Each one of us was created to think, feel, and act just a tiny bit like Him. Have a great week!
