Science, the Bible & Fun with Poppa & Grandma

For the past two years my grandsons have been going to my church on Wednesday nights to participate in the mid-week Children's Ministry. Last year Josiah took Karate and 
earned his yellow belt. This year he is doing science projects and learning "cool stuff". Caleb has a lot of fun in his "class" as well.

Next year there will not be a mid-week Children's Ministry at my church as we are starting a big building project - ultimately we will have an all-new Children's area. So, for the year there will be no mid-week Children's Ministry, I'm writing curriculum I'll use with the boys on Wednesdays. It is called, "Science, the Bible & Fun with Poppa & Grandma". Each week there will be a science project, Bible lesson (about angels in the Bible or children in the Bible) and two Minute-to-Win-It type games. There will also be crafts or baking projects or games or trips to the park or other fun options for the "fun" portion . . . although all of it will be fun! The boys will learn one verse each month and work on service projects as well. It will not be the same as being at church on Wednesday nights, but it will be a lot of fun for the year of the building project.

I don't want my grandsons to miss a year of learning and fun on Wednesday evenings, so I am writing the curriculum and we will be learning and having a lot of fun! Passing on a heritage of faith to my grandsons is something which really matters to me and this is one way I will be doing so on Wednesdays in 2015 & 2016!
