I have the best job on the planet! I love what I get to do as I see life-change happen in kids and families. I know without a shadow of a doubt that it takes many people to make the weekend happen at NewSpring. I am thankful for the many of you who have found your place in volunteering at NewSpring. Every single volunteer is valuable to make NewSpring an inviting place for guests.
If you have not yet found your niche for volunteering, I have an opportunity for you to step up and get involved. Tomorrow, Thursday, February 20, KidzWorld and The Wire are hosting auditions for tech, puppeteers, musicians, actors and actresses as well as Adventure Avenue Praise Team members. If you want to have a impact on the next generation, I invite you to come out tomorrow evening at 6:30 p.m. We will meet in the auditorium first and divide up from there for individualized auditions. We are going to have lots of fun and some great give-aways. Whether you want to help in KidzWorld or The Wire, please come tomorrow night.
For those who may not feel comfortable on stage but would love to engage kids and students on a small group level, we need you too! This weekend you can stop by Volunteer Training (in Adventure Avenue) after any service to ask questions and fill out a volunteer application.
My prayer is that you will ask God to show you where He wants you to serve at NewSpring and then take the steps to make it happen! You will be glad you did!
I know there is still snow on the ground, but KidzWorld and The Wire are thinking about summer–and camp! We have some exciting news for 4th graders about summer camp this year. In order to help your child make a smooth transition from KidzWorld into The Wire, we will be promoting 4th graders into The Wire on Memorial Day weekend, May 24/25. That means they are invited to attend camp with The Wire on June 2-5 at Sky Ranch Camp in Quapaw, OK! It will be a great way for them to have quality time getting to know the leadership team from The Wire. We will also take several KidzWorld staff and volunteers to camp so your child will have familiar adult faces around as well.
This is a great opportunity for your child so I hope you will take advantage of this chance to give your child a great start in The Wire. Registration for reWired Camp is now open and you can get more info and register your child here.
For those of you who may have children younger than 4th grade, KidzWorld Camp will happen on July 1-3 at Sky Ranch Camp. It will be open for kids entering 2nd-4th grades in fall 2014.
We are so excited to offer summer camp this year for elementary age kids who will be entering 2nd through 4th grades in Fall 2014. KidzWorld Camp will happen July 1-3 at Sky Ranch Camp in Quapaw, OK. This is the camp we have used for the past 4 years and we love their facilities. They have lots of outdoor activities available for the kids. Our KidzWorld staff will plan the programming so it will be very high-energy and fun just like it is on the weekend. Kids will get a chance to spend quality time getting to know our KidzWorld leaders and volunteers. This is a great opportunity for your child to have a few days of fully focusing on God while still having a great time enjoying God’s great creation.
Registration is now open at newspring.org/camp. You can get all the information you need and register your child. Please be aware that there is limited space available so make sure your child gets a spot for KidzWorld Summer Camp by registering today.
Thanks for letting us be part of your family’s spiritual journey!
