Kid’s Club is scheduled to meet every Wednesday in February.  All elementary students (K-5th) are welcome to come!  Each week we will have a Bible story, snacks, & prizes.  Kid’s Club meetings also usually have a lesson and games and occasionally we have a craft or other special activity.  Kids Club meets from 6:45 – 8:00 PM, beginning and ending in the HFM gym.

We will continue talking about Jesus’ miracles through the month of February.  We will be looking at Jesus raising a girl from the dead, feeding 5,000, making a blind man see and Peter realizing Jesus is the Son of God.  Our memory verse (worth 15 KC pts. each week) for the month of February is 1 John 4:9  This is how God showed his love among us:  He sent his only Son into the world to give us life through him.

 On February 5 we will be having an Indoor Sledding Party (no snow gear required)!  We will have hot chocolate, “sled” in the gym, play a game of Jeopardy, and hear the Bible story and have snacks.

On February 12 we will be making our annual Valentine’s Day deliveries.  We will be decorating heart shaped cookies and delivering them to people in our community.  All of this will happen between 6:45 – 8:00 PM.  Parents, please be advised that children will be leaving the HFM campus and traveling in a vehicle driven by a KC volunteer.  A signed permission slip is required for children to participate in the deliveries.

We will begin a 2-4 week craft making special wooden crosses on February 19.  The 4th-5th graders will be making crosses out of matchsticks (with the tips burnt) and the younger kids will be making crosses with pieces of clothespins.

The February bonus Bible reading worksheet (Matthew 16:13-20) will be available to pick up at Kid’s Club from 2/5-2/19.  4 KC pts. will be awarded for each correct answer (up to 20 KC pts. total).  Bible Reading Bookmarks will be available each week to review the Bible story at home!  Bonus questions can be answered for 6+ extra points.

We will be awarding KC points this year for kids to earn weekly prizes or save up for special things.  The grand prize (if kids have the self-control to save) is a trip to Chuck E. Cheese on Wednesday, June 10, 2020.  This trip will cost 425 KC points and can be purchased any time throughout the KC year!
