Blast from the Past

I was organizing files and came across pictures I have taken of various things that I never blogged about. So I thought I would post them so that I could know when/what they were.

Pic from 2008.

Princess Annie and Dudley the Dragon.  This is truly a happy memory. These two puppets were our mascots in children's church. Princess Annie was a sassy princess who thought everything revolved around her. The kids helped me teach her lessons about God and who He was and that He is the one to be glorified.

Funny Story:

This castle stage was in three pieces and on wheels and could be pushed back and turned around so that the youth could use the space on Wednesday nights. Each Sunday after children's church we would pull the pins out, push the middle back to the wall, and flip the ends (they actually had a different brick pattern on the back for the youth set. It was and ingenious design and I miss the couple so much that made it!). One Sunday we still had a little guy about 4 years old…

What's on my kidmin to do list this week? May 28, 2017

I’ve been having internet troubles the last few weeks.  Today I’m writing this post in Word so I can copy and paste later because I want to keep my habit of blogging.

So much has been happening, planned and unplanned and I hope to share some changes we’ve made in our children’s area soon! For today I will post my “Kidmin to do” list for the week of May 28, 2017.

Sunday – PIT Crew practice.  We have this once a month. This is our team of 6th grade and up that does puppets, drama and helps in children’s church. We will have pizza and work on upcoming performances and lessons.

Monday – Memorial Day.  I thank the men and women for the sacrifice they gave. We have no idea what they have done for us.  I may work on puppets!

Tuesday – I’m so excited!!!! I’m going to spend the day with my buddy Corrine! She will be in Texas and we will get to hang out today! I really need this break and I’m so looking forward to it.

Wednesday – PowerSource night! My last week of teaching on Ruth. I’m prayin…

What's on my kidmin to do list this week? May 1, 2017

Last week was so busy I didn't even get to post my to-do list! So how about a "to-done" list?

Week of April 24-30th

I taught at my associations VBS conference. I had fun. I had to set up my room and teach on the same day so I kept it simple. Here's a pic of the set up:


The rest of the week I spent on our new check-in system. I spent hours making the name badges, testing the scanner, printer and reports.  I'm trying it out all sorts of ways before I present it to the others so I can know all the ins and outs of the program and how it will work best for us.  I think we like it and it will work well for us since our internet is so terrible there is no way for us to use an internet based system. I will be doing a detailed post about it soon.

I spent one whole day outlining the next three months for our Wednesday night program "PowerSource".


Here's my list for this week May 1-7th

Plan, prep and rehearsal for our annual "GF Kids LIVE!" where ch…
