Kid’s Club is for all children in Kindergarten – 5th grade and meets nearly every week there is school from 6:45 to 8:00 pm.  A meeting usually consists of a Bible story, singing,

snacks, games, occasional crafts, and a Bible lesson.  Please click here to register your child for Kid’s Club!

If your child needs a ride to Kid’s Club, please call van coordinator Sharon Frank before 4:30 PM Wednesday at 517-425-0634.

Kid’s Club is scheduled to meet 2 Wednesdays in April – the 10th and 24th.  (There will be no KC 4/3 because of Spring Break and no KC on 3/17 due to Holy Week.)  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.

On 4/10 we will be having an Easter party and talk about Jesus’ resurrection!  On 4/24 we will be talking about the apostle Paul and how he came to know Jesus.  The memory verse for April (worth 15 pts. each week) is 2 Corinthians 5:17 If anyone belongs to Christ, then he is made new.  The old things have gone; everything is made new!  In crafts on 4/24 we will begin making a Mother’s Day craft.

Bible Reading Bookmarks will be available each week to review the Bible story at home!  Bonus questions can be answered for 6+ extra points.

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.
