Bible Memory Bash 2012 (K-Grade 4)
We are beginning a new 8 week series in Main Street called “Winter Extreme” focusing around winter sports competitions (X Factor Games). It teaches the children how to be disciples of Jesus and what that means. Each week there is a Bible verse that goes along with the lesson to reinforce what they have learned. It is so important and so valuable for your children to commit scripture to memory. This is the age they absorb it and retain it! So with this being said I am encouraging and challenging the kids to be a part of the BIBLE MEMORY BASH. This is how it works:
- Each week, over the next 8 weeks, from January 8th to February 26th the kids will be given a new memory verse card that they collect on a ring and take home with them.
- At the end of 8 weeks if they have memorized all eight verses and are able to say all of them by themselves to one of the Main Street leaders they will be rewarded with their own “X Factor” medal and a Victory Party in early March (date to be announced) to celebrate their achievement.
Please encourage your children to be a part of this activity. They will need you to be their cheerleaders and coaches. The true reward is not in the medal or in the party but in the truths that they will hide in their hearts!

Sniffle Sniffle! A Note for Parents from Kidsville
It’s that wonderful time of year again – cold and flu season! I know, very exciting. In Kidsville, we’re all about sharing – except when it comes to our germs! To that end, we’re is making every effort to keep those silly germs at bay for the benefit of all of our fantastic kids (not to mention fantastic leaders) – lots of Purell and hand-washing! So, we’d love for you to join us in the fight against phlegm, the battle against boogies, the conflict with coughing…well, you get the idea. If your little soldier is fighting their own little bug, please help us out by doing one of 2 things: You can keep your brave little sniffler on the sidelines for a week to protect the rest of the troops, or at least let your leaders know what we’re up against so they can make every effort to secure the fort against enemy influenzic invaders! Thanks for your help, parents! Together, we can help keep everyone “over the weather!”
