September allowed us to settle back into a consistent routine and weekly schedule. It also remained warm and sunny, which left us plenty of opportunities to get the kids outside and run off their pent up energy from those long school days. We started a great new series learning about the “I AM” statements that […]
August came and went – and just like that, Summer 2019 is over and school is back in session. We started the month with our annual backpack and school supply outreach. We were able to help 174 kids this year. Huge thanks to the John Mark Sunday School Class at St. Stephen UMC, who came […]
July is always our kids’ favorite month of the year. Why? Camp Awesome! We took 38 kids and 14 adults/teenagers to Hidden Falls Ranch on July 1 for our annual 3 days of crazy fun. We climbed, hiked, swam, rode horses, tie-dyed our camp t-shirts, ate S’mores, laughed a lot, and ate some delicious food. […]
We have already had a blast this summer! In addition to our regular weekly Bible studies filled with crafts, snacks, and water balloons, we were able to partner with 3 different churches to create some fun new memories and friendships for our kids. We kicked off the summer at Cathy’s Pointe with the Hillside North […]
Its hard to believe, but we’ve finished our last month of the school year! May was filled with some great weather (when it wasn’t raining). We continued learning about the Armor of God, and the kids got in their last bit of fun with Lia before she had her baby boy (on Tuesday, May 28!). […]

February 2019 is in the books. We spent a lot of time indoors due to the cold. (but got out to run around as much as possible). We had a lot of kids out sick. But no matter what, we found ways to have fun, learn all about Jesus, and meet new some new friends. […]
Our first month of the new year flew by. We started our study on the life of Jesus each week, played as many wild and wacky games as we could, made some fun things, and met some new friends. And, as always, we had a blast!
