May - June Theme:  

HAPPY CAMPERS

During the months of May and June kids will be taught about the adventure of living life with God!

When Jesus walked this earth, he invited twelve men to share in his life and to join him on a great adventure. Today, Jesus invites each of us to join him on this great adventure of life in Christ.

MEMORY VERSE:

“God began a good work in you. And I am sure that he will carry it on until it is completed. That will be on the day Christ Jesus returns.” 

Philippians 1:6 (NIRV)
