This past week RT Kids had an awesome opportunity to partner with George Washington Carver Academy here in Highland Park in having a last day of school event for the kids. It was a fantastic day filled with bouncy houses, face painting, water balloons, gaming trucks, carnival rides, and more! (Shout out to Pastor Gunn of Power Company Kids Club for allowing us to borrow their inflatables!) It was a great chance for RT Kids to get more involved within the community and build relationships with both the kids and the leaders of the school. Moving forward in the fall, we are working to begin holding school assemblies and other programs within the Highland Park schools, as well as getting connected to and working with some of the boys & girls clubs in the area. SO excited for all that God is going to do!!
This Sunday in RT Kids we celebrated Father's Day! The kids had the chance to make 'Reasons I love you' books for their fathers/grandfathers/etc and they did a great job, with their handmade books turning out super cute. During our lesson time, we talked about how God desires to be our father, and even when our earthly fathers can't always be around, God is a father who will always be there to hear and help us.
Looking forward to July, we are super excited to be having our "Superhero Sunday!" Another day of breakfast, costumes, prizes, and mad fun. . . it's going to be a good time. More details coming soon!
