In February of this year, we had a Disney Frozen Party. As you can see in the above selfie, we had Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and Olaf at the party!
Despite it being awintery snowy day, we had 16 kids preschool through 4th grade that came out to see the characters and make crafts and win prizes! Seven of the kids have no church connection. Please pray for these and others as we continue to reach unreached in the community.
Our 22nd prouction as a Theatre was a repeat of a story for the theatre, but a different version. We performed the Disney version of Peter Pan. Sarah played Mr. Smee, Captain Hook's sidekick! Peter Pan had 5 shows with 4 sold out completely and one more than 80 % sold out. With a cast of 48 kids grades 4 to college, the show as a marvelous success. Many of the teens who were in the show began regualrly coming to youth group.
Easter at the Mall!
It's always amazing to me that we can do what we do. Our church is so small, but we dive in to do the work God has for us. Having a 3000+ easter egg hunt followed by a worship service in the food court is one of those big things!
Our whole family served at the Mall. I coordinated the Egg Hunt and the Kids Ministry as well as teaching the older kids, Debbie coordinated the Preschool area and taught the Preschool Bible Story. Josh assisted with the Egg hunt and preschool games, and TJ and Sarah served on the worship team.
