Little Ladies Night Out is an outreach event that is hosted three times a year. The girls from church are given flyers in sealed envelopes that they can take to school and pass out to other girls in their classes. The girls who participate are between the ages of 4 and 11. This event, Colour Your World, includes colour games, crafts and science activities. The devotional “Who is the Greatest” looks at the theme “true greatness comes in serving others”. The devotional uses the story of “The Rainbow Fish” and the story of Jesus and the children. To learn more, download this program.

God invites each of us to join his Amazing Race! This Bible program teaches campers what it means to be in this race and invites them to join it. Here are some of the key points campers will discover: God’s Race is for everyone; What is God’s Race? It’s God’s Course for us; The Finish Line is life with God in heaven forever; Sin takes us off course; God strengthens us in the race; and God’s grace put us back on course Key verse for the week is 2 Timothy 4:7: I have competed well; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith! May your campers be able to echo these words of the Apostle Paul. This Bible program uses a large group – small group teaching style with dramas, group activities and station activities. Also included are cabin devotions which could be used as small group discussion times when your campers need a break from their physical activity or as a final teaching time at the end of the day. NOTE this is a 42 page download. If you would rather purchase a printed copy you can order one through our on-line catalogue at www.saministrycatalogue.ca

Games

Plan a special night just for the kids to celebrate the joys of winter. Evening should include: games, devotional and food. Here’s a sample game:

Snowball Madness – Divide group into two teams. Each team is given several empty soda cans and one large bag of marshmallows. Each team tries to build an igloo (wall) of cans while the other team tries to knock it down with marshmallows. You will need a center line that the teams cannot cross.
