Our Big Summer Plans!

Our Big Summer Plans!

It’s hard to believe that Summer is just around the corner.  In case you haven’t heard, we’ll be taking a break from Vacation Bible School this year and focusing on some new outreach methods.  We want to have activities the whole family can participate in and we’d like to get out in the community a bit more.  If you’re in the Erie, PA area, be sure to join us! Here’s the plan:

Five Fabulous Family Movie Nights: July (Dusk-11PM)

Pack your snacks, lawn chairs and blankets and bring the whole family for an outdoor movie fun on our “big screen”. The movies are free and guaranteed family friendly! It’s a terrific way to enjoy some family summertime fun! Movies begin at dusk. In case of inclement weather, movies will be held indoors in the gym.

Monday Morning Storytime in the Park: June, July, and August

Parents and kids, join us for storytime at Whitford Park this summer! Every Monday Morning at 10:30AM (except July 4th). Listen to a fun story geared towards ages 4-6, have a snack, and enjoy a craft together. Children must be accompanied by an adult. All ages welcome. No cost. Hope to see you there!

Wednesday Night: The BIG STORY

There is a lot of stuff in the pages of the Bible, but believe it or not, it’s all one Big Story about God’s love and his plan for us and the world.  This summer, in Kids’ Club at East Lake Road Alliance,  we’ll explore the major stories in the Bible and how they are all connected.  After hearing the story, the kids will head to stations to explore parts of the story in fun, hands-on ways. Stations may include things like cooking, drama, puppets, art, math, science, games, history, prayer, nature, wood-working, or computer.  Program runs from 6:30PM – 7:30PM. Every week will be something new and different!
