Kids In Action (Grades K-5): Wednesday 6:45-8:00 p.m.

(Formerly "Kids 4 Truth")  Besides Bible lessons, games and other fun activities,  children learn about the joy of helping others through various projects that benefit local schools and our community.  

Along with our church body, Kids In Action raised $480 for the hurricane victims, sent treats and more than 30 notes of encouragement to the teachers and staff of a local school.  In addition we made a donation of Legos for Lego Club at the school.  

Next up….SHOEBOXES!

For this year, if you would like to pack a shoebox on your own, you can bring it to the Kids in Action table in the foyer and we will make sure it gets delivered to a drop-off location.  Please include a check or cash of $9 per box for shipping.   Please see the link below for more details.  You can also pack a shoebox online!

We have leftover shoeboxes from last year if you would like to use one.  Please turn filled shoeboxes in by Sunday, November 19th.  

Starting in December, we will once again be collecting items each month to work towards a shoebox packing party next November.  Stay tuned…

“Lights! Love! Action!...Here and There!”

Puppet Ministry  (Jr High and up, meets as needed)

Lend a hand...and your talents with the West Sub puppet ministry.  Our puppets are always a favorite feature of our summer Kids Club (VBS) program and we are looking for ways to incorporate them into other ministries as well.  No experience is needed.  We would also like to extend the invitation to anyone interested in making props and costumes.  Our puppets will be performing every Sunday  during December to introduce each week's sermon.  Come and see if this fun and creative ministry is for you!
