Pizza, anyone? What does pizza have to do with learning about God? Well, today our bottom line was: When you put God first, everything else falls in place. So the kids got to make these “pizzas” to help them realize that just like a pizza needs a crust to hold it all together, so we need to put God first in our lives to help everything else fall into place. It was a blast!!
Here I am presenting a KidzWorld check to Pastor Mark. All during the month of December our kids have been bringing their offering to help with the cost of the new Adventure Avenue Theater puppet stage. These kids have been excited about having a part in this great project. Many of them have younger siblings or friends who will be able to enjoy the theater. After our offerings this morning, the total the kids have given for this project is just over $600!! Thanks, kids, for sacrificing for others.
Last Wednesday Debbie and I had a meeting with the Preschool Dept lead teachers to discuss many things but the main reason was to discuss the opening of a second theater for our children at NewSpring. I am so excited about this theater and the potential to engage our younger ones on a whole new level. Darrel and Karla Stinson have stepped up to the plate to be in charge of the theater and it is going to be over-the-top fantastic! They have such a passion for kids and they have some awesome workers that are going to make it “the best hour of your child’s week”! The work has already started; the carpet has been pulled off the floor and the underlying concrete has been sanded and stained. The next step is painting the walls and ceiling. Dale and his crew are already working on the puppet stage that is going to be in there. With that all in mind, our Grand Opening will be Feburary 17th and we are pulling out all the stops to make this Grand Opening something to remember.
I am always amazed by the high quality of volunteers we have in KidzWorld and their dedication to connecting with children here at NewSpring.
One last thing… let me encourage you to give to this special project. We have a chance here to have a big impact on children of Wichita and we are going to need your help to do it. Pray about a special gift to the remodel projects at NewSpring. Your dollar will go a long ways in reaching boys and girls and men and women to Jesus!
