First Fundag Is in the Books

We had our first kids club, Fundag, happened today.  We got there and set everything up.  Grace asked us this morning how many kids would come.  We had no idea.  We knew that there would be kids from our church, but they were also inviting friends, and we had invited many people in the neighborhood.

Ahoy, matey!

For today and the next three months, we have a pirate theme.  JJ, who at one time was in our children’s church, played the part of Angry Pirate.  The kids had to work together to get back the treasure that anger steals from us: health, peace, friends and self-control.  The kids really responded well to the entire service, and they took plenty of flyers to invite their friends.  We had 15 kids today, and I think that we’ll have more the next time.

Some parents even stayed to see what Fundag was all about.  It was great to get to know some of them as well. We had people outside of the room who were amazed that there could be a service just for kids.

It was so wonderful to do this as a family.  Grace helped with a modern day chalk drawing.  Instead of chalk, she used an iPad.  Wow, how things have changed!

Grace drew a picture while a story was being told about the dangers of letting anger build.
