Playcation 2017: A great start to our summer.
Last week almost 90 preschoolers started their summer off here at ClearView. We had such an encouraging week leading these children through a variety of learning activities which incorporate singing, thinking, and playing. These are all elements that most of our children are able to enjoy on any given Sunday; however, not all of these children attend church regularly. It was a nice taste of what we offer every week here at ClearView.
1. Sing: Each group sings and worships together every day. They sing praise songs about who God is, and how great He is.
2. Think: This year the children’s Bible study examined the life of David. We were able to see how God is so good, faithful to His children, and keeps His promises.
3. Play: We try to incorporate play in everything we do. This is one of the best ways preschoolers learn.
Overall we hope that our children will resemble Christ when he was a child like mentioned in Luke 2:52 “ And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”
Here is a quote from one of our first time families who attended Playcation this year:
“This was our first year of Playcation, and we just wanted to send a quick thank you note. It was such a fun and special week for the kids. My daughter isn't away from me very often, and her teachers were so loving and patient with her as she adjusted to leaving me each day. They are already looking forward to next year.” Catie
We are so proud of the leadership who helped make Playcation such a success. Two things that stood out the most about this year’s leadership teams were: the diverse age ranges of the leaders, and their ability to plan and execute Playcation in such a loving and peaceful way. It was truly an intergenerational week here at ClearView. The body of Christ was at work discipling at every age level.
We are so fortunate to have a church family who sees the value in reaching out to families with young children to provide a day camp experience that focuses on teaching God’s truth in such a fun way. Thank you for being intentional about how you pray for our community and investing your time and money into our Kids Ministry at ClearView. We are a church that is making a difference in our community and bringing people into the Kingdom of God.
