Thank you for the Hot Chocolate for the whole family for December 1 advent calendar. The girls wanted to drink theirs by the fire.
Thank you! We didn't expect a "kid's church" bag this month because of the family services at "grown-up church." Ever since we started in October, Felix has been so excited about God. He loves watching the SOVKids team and doing the projects. Yesterday, after Pastor Christian's message, we made our own advent candle centerpiece. Last week, he came in and grabbed his kid's Jesus Calling book, and told me, "Dad and I are going to learn about Joses and God." "Jesus? Moses? Joseph?" "Yeah, and God." Also pictured, him cross-referencing the story of Scar and Mufasa (Daniel and the Lions Den) in his Bibles.
Thanks for the at home craft SOVKids! Overheard in the hall: "It's okay baby, God takes care of us. God will be with us wherever we go."
Online Sunday School!!
The kiddos sure enjoyed their special treat. Thank you all for your hard work on putting together the fabulous online fun each and every week. We ❤️ and miss you!! Merry Christmas 🎄
Boys enjoying their service. Thank you!
Thank thank you for all the awesome pictures from WAPO! Both my kids had a blast this past week.
Thank you for all the hard work that went into VBS and Sports Camp! My kids loved it! We are so thankful for SOV's kids programming!
We made it through the snow to deliver this box to John and Suzanne today! Such a fun and special thing to do! Our hearts are happy! #loveyourneighbor

Our Trout Lake campers think God is….

I think the highlight of my week was watching Grady overcome a huge fear and go down the zip line. I love how his cabin mates cheered him on and were so proud of him too.

Today many of our campers overcame some big fears. I’m so proud of them for their courage.

Hey sovKids!
Join us this weekend for our first Summer at sovKids! Parents attend the 9:15am service and kids will head outside for some summer fun. We’ll worship together, hear all about how Jesus walked on water, and then get a chance to play on a 16ft inflatable water slide and 32ft slip n’ slide! Wear your swimsuits and bring a towel.

See you Sunday!

ROCKY RAILWAY | DAY 4

Today was another "rail"-y fun train adventure! 🛤

Jesus' power lets us live forever in heaven with Him! We also had a few very creative sovKids raise money for our alpaca mission by setting up lemonade and craft stands in their neighborhoods - way to go! Tomorrow is the last day to bring in your donations to help purchase alpacas for families in Ecuador and our final day of Rocky Railway VBS!

Lace up those racing sneakers! This Sunday our Surge students will be putting all their training to the test as they run their race through obstacles of all sorts. 👟

1st - 5th Graders, come ready to decorate your "race jersey" before getting a little messy and enduring some outdoor challenges as a class during large group!

In our Surge sovKids online video last Sunday, Keri and Kayla competed to see who could whip up the best wikki stix bridge in less than 60 seconds. We ended up with two very unique (and strange?) interpretations. Which is your favorite?

If you didn’t get a chance to watch the video yet, you can find it on our website at sov.church/sovkids. May the best bridge win!
