KIDVENTURE ACTIVITIES

We desire to see kids and families live on mission together through a lifestyle of being involved in God’s Word, responding to His Spirit, and loving others by serving together. Please check out our Kidventure Resources page here.  We have videos, worship and parent guides to download/watch so our kids won’t miss out on our activities.  See below what’s coming up in Kidventure this week:

We’re having a Kidventure Talent Show! Do you dance? Play an instrument? Juggle? Do gymnastics? Enter to win a Grand Prize (by age group) by posting your talent to Facebook and/or Instagram and tagging us at @gckidventure. All ages are invited! Last day to enter is May 30th. Winners will be voted on and announced on June 1st. We can’t wait to see all your gifts and talents!

TASTE OF GRACE
May 31 | 2:00PM | Contact: Lauren
A few times per year, we invite those who are new to Grace Chapel to join us for Taste of Grace; a dinner with our church leadership. In this season where a dinner is not possible, we would like to invite you to a Zoom Taste of Grace! This is a chance to be with some of the church staff, many of whom you are seeing during church online. We will talk about who we are as Grace Chapel, get to know a little bit about you, share our strategy of care during COVID-19 limitations, and hopefully answer some of your questions! We hope you will join us! If you have any questions, or if you would like to attend, please email Lauren.

Incoming 6th graders will be invited to join weekly Ardent events and will receive separate communication from our Youth Pastors with more details. For questions about Ardent, contact Emma.
