Every Sunday thru Sept. 3 in REVIVE Kids is a BIG summer party for our 3-10 year olds during our 10:30 AM Sunday service. Our Activities Center looks like a tropical beach paradise complete with surfboard and surfer dude attire when the kids enter each Sunday.

The kids will be playing fun games outside (weather willing) so please dress them appropriately, preferably in clothes suitable for playing in. There will be some games involving water balloons but none of the kids will get too wet that they will need a change of clothes. Each kid is placed on a team where they earn points with hopes of winning for the month and earning totally gnarly prizes!

When the kids come inside each Sunday, they’ll be treated to our ‘Surf’s Up’ series, where they’ll learn about the ‘Beati-dudes’ — or better yet — the Beatitudes: eight blessings promised to those who seek Jesus and live for him. The Beatitudes can change the way we look at life and help us to live in a way that honors Jesus. Our REVIVE Youth students will star in a totally righteous skit each week to reinforce the lesson in the ‘Surf’s Up’ series for that given Sunday.

So kids will learn to chill with the Beatitudes. Here’s the memory verse for the series: “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32 (NIV)

The kids will also be treated to our awesome Kids Praise every Sunday and a cool snack when they come in from outside.

Ever played Noodle Golf? How about What Ball, HallE Ball or Beachball Badminton?

If not, that’s OK … That’s why Wacky Wednesdays exists for REVIVE Kids! Every Wednesday from 7-8:30 PM, kids will not just have a ton of fun — it’ll be a ton of WACKY fun with sports like these and many more.

There’s even a Fidget Spinner Week and a Christmas in July with snow and ice, and many traditional games will be played backwards — how’s that for wacky?!!

Of course, there will be special, wacky snacks too!

Our Wacky Wednesday schedule kicks off July 12 and runs through July 26. After a two-week Summer break for our church the first two Wednesdays in August, Wacky Wednesdays crank back up again from Aug. 16-30.  

There are even Wacky Wednesday Bible verses to underscore this thrilling theme, beginning with Matthew 19:30 and Matthew 20:16 about the last being first and the first being last. Other Wacky Wednesday Bible verses featured will be Proverbs 3:6 and Isaiah 55:8-9.

If being wacky is your kid’s thing, which usually comes with the territory for kids, then your kids need to turn out for Wacky Wednesdays!
