This summer, we have something new that FaithWorks! is very excited about! It’s called
Step Up 2012! This event will be a FaithWorks!-has-left-the-building kind of thing! It will complete our connecting, growing and sharing summer trilogy!
FW! Summer Part 1: Every Sunday, our summer FaithWorks! team will be going over-the-top to give our kids a great opportunity to CONNECT with each other and CONNECT with God. We know how important the relationships our kids have with their church family friends is!! We will spend the entire summer learning from David and using his story to help us have a better relationship with each other and God in a series called “Kid 2 Crown”.
FW! Summer Part 2: For an entire week, a team of FaithWorks! adults and youth will be sharing the Gospel with our kids at Camp Lakewood. This is a place to GROW and where lives are transformed. Kids grasp God’s love for them! So many have claimed Jesus as their Forever Friend at summer camp that we invest hours and hours into developing an amazing week! As of today we have over 30 FaithWorks! kids registered for camp!!
FW! Summer Part 3: June 25 will begin Step Up 2012 and FaithWorks! will reach out to SHARE God with the kids in our community. I am so excited about this!! This will be a fun evening where we help our kids understand that everyone is a masterpiece (see Ephesians 2:10) and need to Step Up their activity level! It is important it is to take care of our bodies with healthy activity – because we are a gift from God! FOR KIDS 4 YRS (by June 1) THROUGH FOURTH GRADE.
Here’s where it gets really exciting: We have created a one-day event that will take place in four locations on four consecutive days! Your child can attend on June 25 at Clay North along with our Swanson Elementary School neighborhood. They will receive a pedometer and a water bottle and spend the evening running, jumping and dancing! They’ll learn lots of ways to Step Up their activity level and even get a healthy dinner.
THEN, over the following three days, Step Up 2012 will travel to three different locations: June 26 – Hope Ministries’ Family Life Center; June 27 – the LaSalle neighborhood where we do the food distribution on Good Fridays; and June 28 – Eastside Park in Niles, Michigan.
Here’s a great way to serve our community with your kids!! We want you to help at Step Up 2012 with registration, hanging out with a group of kids to move them from rotation to rotation, making box dinners, filling water bottles, setting up tents, dancing, jumping and running!! Stop by the Do Something counter this weekend after either service and talk to a Step Up 2012 team member.
All FaithWorks! kids and their friends are encouraged to attend on June 25!! The other three days, when you come out to share with our community, your child can be right there with you!! How cool is that?!
