Weekly SNAC, 27 May 2018 - Kids Holiday Club - God’s Kingdom Awakens

“A long time ago in a galaxy far away…” No wait, that’s not right! “A long time ago in a galaxy far away…” No wait, that’s not right! “In 7 weeks’ time in a church right near us… 150 children and their leaders will descend ready to hear all about how God’s Kingdom Awakens.”

As many of you know, I’m talking about Kids Holiday Club. KHC is SNAC’s annual 4-day holiday program for kids in K-6. We spend the mornings singing, playing games, eating delicious food, doing amazing crafts and most importantly hearing from God’s word. This year our theme is Star Wars: God’s Kingdom Awakens and we’re looking at the Bible’s teaching on God’s Kingdom. With 7 weeks to go, preparations are well and truly underway and we are getting excited! 

One of my favourite things about KHC is that there are opportunities for every member of SNAC to be involved. Below are a few suggestions for how you could serve. I would love you to prayerfully consider how you might like to be involved. KHC is an incredible opportunity to reach out with the gospel to children and families in our community (plus it’s an absolute blast!) We want everyone at SNAC to be part of it! So contact someone below, or if you have a different way you’d like to be involved, please don’t hesitate to contact me! And… may the force be with you!

1. Pray- Praise God for another opportunity to encourage Christian kids and reach out to those in our community.- Please pray that kids and families in our local schools would be bold in inviting friends to come. Pray that many would come and hear the good news of Jesus.- Please pray for the team as we prepare. Ask God to give us creativity and boldness as we dream about what KHC will look like this year.- Pray for those teaching as they prepare talks and discussion group material, that God would give them understanding and clarity as they read his scriptures and creativity as they write.

2. Register and invite- Register on the SNAC website at snac.org.au/khc- Or use a paper form and hand them back to Emily (Bex Nth), Rick (9am) or Carmel (10:30 Carlton)- But just as importantly, talk with your kids about who they could invite to KHC to come and hear the gospel. Pray for them with your kids every night from now until KHC! And grab some extra forms to pass on to their parents.                  

3. Craft- Each day our kids take home a themed craft. This is a highlight for many kids! If you’re crafty (or if you can use a pair of scissors) and are happy to help with things before or during the week please contact Carmel (This email address is being protected from spambots.

4. Design- Each year we transform the church to fit the theme (Star Wars). If you’re interested in dreaming up or designing some of the decorations then please contact Avril (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

5. Construction- We have some ambitious activities and design concepts that need to be constructed. If you’re handy with a power tool or hammer and nails please contact Avril (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

6. Kitchen- Each day at KHC we provide morning tea for over 200 kids and leaders. This is a mammoth task and we need people who can help in the kitchen each morning at KHC - Or if you can’t be there the week of perhaps you could pre-cook food for the week? If you’d like to help, please contact Carmel (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

7. Activity planning- If you’re a Star Wars fan we’d love your help with ideas for Star Wars themed activities. If this is you please contact Jess (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

For any other ideas on how you might serve please contact me!
