I realized the other day that we haven't told you too much about the children's program that we have at the church! It is called XLR8 and it is every Friday afternoon from 3:30-5:00. The children range anywhere from preschool to 6th grade. It is run by a lady in the church and I help her out. XLR8 averages about 20-30 kids. Quite a few of the kids do not go to our church, so it's a really neat opportunity to get kids into the church and learn about the Lord!
This term the students learned the books of the Bible, the 12 disciples, the Beatitudes and 5 Bible verses! All term they work really hard to learn their information, because at the end of the term they are quizzed in order to earn badges. Last Sunday we had an XLR8 awards ceremony where the students were presented with the badges that they had learned from the term. Here are a few pictures from the event!
At the start of the awards ceremony, the kids sang and did the motions for their favorite song! Jesus is My Superhero :)
The student's names were called one-by-one and they came up to the front where they were pinned with their badges!
