(There will be no Kid’s Club November 22.)

In November, we will be finishing the story of Samson as well as learn about Ruth & Boaz, Samuel and King Saul.  Our memory verse is 2 Timothy 3:16 “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching and for showing people what is wrong in their lives.  It is useful for correcting faults and teaching how to live right.”  Each week the underlined portion can be said for 10 KC pts. or the whole verse can be said for 20 KC pts.

In crafts on 11/8 we will be making cards for soldiers.  On 11/29 we will begin making snowflakes (this craft will take 2-3 weeks to finish).  On November 15 we will be having our annual Thanksgiving Feast!  All children are invited to bring 10 servings of their favorite food to share.

The bonus Bible reading worksheet this month will be from 1 Samuel 3:1-20.  Kids can pick up a worksheet after the 11/1 Kid’s Club.  4 KC pts. will be awarded for each correct answer (up to 20 KC pts. total).  Worksheets are due by the end of the 11/15 Kid’s Club.  Bible Reading Bookmarks are available every week to encourage kids to read each week’s KC Bible Story.  They are available at the announcements’ table, right outside the partitions in the gym.

This year Kid’s Club will offer KC points for attendance, Bible memorization, bringing your Bible, bringing a visitor, and attending Sunday School.  KC points can be used to purchase prizes at any time.  The ultimate prize is a trip to Chuck E. Cheese on June 6, 2018 from 1:00 am – 7:30 PM!  The Chuck E. Cheese trip costs 400 Kid’s Club points.
