Here’s what’s happening this month at Cornerstone Kids. You will find information about what the kids are learning, preview videos, take home materials and more.
Summer with Cornerstone Kids officially kicks off this week, and there is so much to look forward to – Summer Serve Days, WinShape Camps for Communities, Merge Camp, Camp Splish Splash on Sunday mornings in Pebble Path, and Sunday mornings with superheroes in Rock City. There will also be Movie Nights and a Back to School Beach Party this summer at Cornerstone. We know this will be a fun-filled, faith- filled summer, and we can’t wait to spend it with you and your family!
In Pebble Path, get ready for Camp Splish Splash in June and July where our preschoolers will experience great Bible stories along with plenty of wet activities and loads of water fun! They will learn about Noah and the ark, Jonah and the whale, Moses and the Red Sea and other epic water stories that will help them grow in their understanding that “God’s way is perfect.” 2 Samuel 22:31.
In Rock City, we’re excited to spend June and July discovering what it means to have Conviction and to stand up and get in the story – God’s story! And, we’re doing it with superheroes! Our theme verse will be, “Don’t ever get tired of doing the right thing.” 2 Thessalonians 3:13. There will be lots of capes, masks and heroic happenings all summer long as we dig into great Bible teaching that will show us that Jesus was able to live with conviction because He knew the will of His Father, and that gave Him strength and courage to do what is right. We want our kids to know and grow in God’s character because when they do, they will be superheroes, too, and will stand up for the things that matter to God.
