We are thankful for the hundreds of volunteers that made Promotion Weekend a success. We had almost 900 children in Small Groups (nursery - 4th grade), virtually all of them in their new grade levels. Even with that number, it's amazing to think this weekend probably won't be our biggest attendance of the fall, since many folks were still on vacation. Praise God that He gives us the opportunity to share the Gospel message!
As a quick recap, our Preschoolers (2 years - 5k) learned about God as the Creator of the universe, even memorizing Genesis 1:1. They will continue this series for three more weekends, before doing a new series on Adam & Eve. See our website for our Preschool Curriculum outline.
In Camp Grace, there was honestly not a whole lot of deep spiritual content. We had a fun time with songs, skits, and "campers" getting to know their new leaders and friends. See the video below (or on Vimeo) for some clips from our Pelham Road 11:15 service and our (newly launched!) Camp Grace programming on our Downtown Campus. Yes, he really did put icing in his armpits, and then eat it.
This coming weekend, we'll resume with our regular Camp Grace curriculum (see the schedule on our website). If you have a child who is new to Camp Grace, see this post.
