In June, our Creation Kids crew learned about different lessons with the help of safari animals!

Lions taught us to be humble through the story of Samson and Delilah.

Zebras taught us to be honest about who we are, with the story of Jacob's deception of Isaac.

With the story of Zacchaeus, tigers taught us that God can make anyone's life better!

Elephants taught us that while they may never forget, God forgives and forgets our sins, giving us a fresh new start when we need it.

Creation Kids and Connect Student Ministry invite you to attend our Back to School Bash on Saturday, July 27th! As our Creation Kids team wraps up safari-themed bible lessons, we are excited to have one more wild adventure before the adventure of this next school year begins!

Come dressed in your safari best as a wild animal or wacky explorer to see if you can snag the ultimate back-to-school prize in our costume contest! Hunt for school supplies, and bring a backpack to take home your discoveries. Come prepared for wet and safari-wild-fun-in-the-sun, as we will have a giant slip and slide, water relay games, water balloons, face painting, and of course, a giant inflatable obstacle course. Food, water, and snacks will be provided, as will shady refuge for the sun-shy safari explorers. We look forward to launching into the school year together!
Creation Kid of the Month!
For the month of June, I would like to present the Creation Kid of the Month award to
Rayanna DeVaughn!

Rayanna has been a loyal Creation Kids attendee and participant with nearly perfect attendance. She always arrives to Elementary Worship ready to listen and focus, and is always very kind and considerate of her friends. We love Rayanna for her sweet personality, her awesome answers to questions, and the loving example that she is to her peers!

Congratulations, Rayanna!

(See Ms. Rachel on Sunday July 7th for your Creation Kid of the Month award!)


*Your child could be the next Creation Kid of the Month! This award is given based on overall attendance, participation, and demonstration of Creation Kids values! For each monthly winner, a super cool prize is awarded, and they get to be a church-wide celebrity for the entire next month!
Upcoming Curriculum and Lessons
Creation Kids Mission
We believe that every child is a gift from God, uniquely created to do good works and to bring glory to Him! It is our duty to welcome our children as Jesus welcomes them, with open arms, respect for who they are as individuals, and with a loving foundation. (Psalm 127:3; Ephesians 2:10, Matthew 18:5) Our mission is to partner with families in equipping their child to worship, serve, grow, and share the love of God!
"Back to School,
Back to School,
We know the safari will be cool!"

"Wow" Moments!
On "Tiger Day" a few of our friends got to wear one of the three stuffed tiger bracelets during lesson. When Mira asked if she could wear a tiger too, RJ sweetly offered her his! Awesome job being a great friend, RJ!

Each Sunday, Carlos leads a selfless and prayerful example to us all, by always bringing up thoughtful prayer requests with the goal of helping others. Carlos, I am so impressed by your big heart and your love for those around you.

August-September
Creation Kids will begin a series on Fruit of the Spirit on August 4th

We will cover a new Fruit of the Spirit each week, and hope to end this series with a field trip to an orchard for apple picking! (details TBD)
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
