  • 3 SGLs (Small Group Leaders) per group
Why are small groups good for kids?

  • Leaders can lead with authentic faith, encouraging kids in their spiritual walk also

  • Resources will be provided on how to engage kids in conversation about what they are learning
  • SGLs will be building relationships with parents as they drop off and pickup, or even other times as applicable, in order to support the family

Eggs of Easter 2021.jpg

  • Your kit will include 8 days of Devotional Cards with verses, songs, talking prompts and more.
  • Each day's devo should take about 5-10 minutes. Set aside time before naps, bedtime or dinner.
  • This is NOT the same as the Resurrection eggs. We chose to focus on the whole gospel instead of just the events of Holy week. Feel free to add those conversations. We want to make sure kids understand who Jesus is and what He means to them.
  • Each child in your house will get their own set of eggs with the daily symbol inside so everyone's hands are busy!
  • You will want to increase the "drama" by not letting them look ahead.
  • There are also extra activities included if you want to add to your Holy Week festivities.

Register for your kit NOW!

Vacation Bible Clubs- -Backyard style

In 2020 we hosted our first ever Backyard Bible Clubs and it was a great success! Kids, parents, grandparents and teens all over WNY worshipped and learned about Jesus in their yards, living rooms, friends' houses, parks..... And we got to partner with Cornerstone Church on Grand Island. We look forward to more opportunities like this!

Fall Fest

Traditionally we have hosted a BIG fall party at the end of October. 2020 will look different but we look forward to a great time.
