Faith Lutheran provides a supervised, faith-based Christian program for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade whose parents work when there is a day off from school (we have had middle school-aged siblings as helpers, too). KidPower is open to any child who meets the age requirements. They do not have to be members of Faith Lutheran.
We must have at least 3 families registered by the deadline in order to hold KidPower.
Upcoming KidPower Dates:
- No upcomming KidPower dates have been announced.
The registration book is located in the front office at Faith, or you can call the church office at 320-587-2093 to reserve a space.
KidPower runs from 8am to 5pm (if you need an early drop-off, we can arrange it). Some activities we have done in the past include bowling, going out to a movie, visiting the library, crafts, games, skits, and baking.
Cost per day (includes 2 snacks, lunch, and all activities):
- $15 for one child
- $25 for two children
- $35 maximum per family
Dorothy Desens, Shelly Grorud, and Wendy Toops will lead KidPower for the current sessions. If you have any questions, please call 320-587-2093 or email Wendy Toops.
Good News. Great Joy. Spread the Word! Such were the angel’s message and song to shepherds on the hillside. It is the same message for us. Jesus and His gift of salvation are too good to keep to ourselves.
We share the Good News many ways. One of them is through “Operation Christmas Child,” for which we fill shoeboxes with delightful things to arouse excitement for Jesus in the hearts of children all over the world. Children receiving boxes are told that it is the love of God, through Jesus’ birth and saving love on the cross and from the empty tomb, that make these gifts possible.
We hope you will consider putting boxes together again this year. If you have some, but not all of the materials for assembly, be sure to bring them to the church. You can bring completed boxes or simple articles to put in the boxes. Pick up a brochure in the narthex, church office or gathering space. If you can’t find them, ask the office. The brochures spell out exactly how the boxes must be assembled, boys and girls differently, and for specific age levels. Following the brochure makes it easy. Here’s what you can do:
- Pick up a brochure.
- Fill a box following the brochure’s instructions.
- OR, bring articles for children for others to pack (again, see the brochure for what can or can’t be included in the box).
- Opt to provide cash to help pay shipping costs (each box costs $ 7.00 to ship). If you make out a check for $ 7.00 or $ 14.00, etc., make it out to “Samaritan’s Purse.”
- Pray! Pray for the Name of Jesus to shine through the gifts.
Remember the deadline: SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10. Dean Dietel will pick up the boxes for shipping on November 11.
Bring everything related to Operation Christmas Child to the church office: completed boxes, cash gifts, articles for boxes.
On Wednesday, November 6, beginning at 9am, FLC Seniors are invited to work with Release time students to pack shoe boxes together. Let Pastor Pilgrim or Kacie Fahey know if you can share your time and serve your Lord in this activity. To read more about Operation Christmas Child, click here.
Along with helping ground our children in the faith, Sunday School is one of Faith’s most important outreach ministries. It draws families who might not otherwise participate in the church. Please pray for all our Sunday School students, their teachers and families, that God will use this ministry to build up faith in Jesus.
Sunday School is also a significant expense for Faith’s program budget. That is why we are tying the fourth of this year’s High-5 special offerings to this important ministry. These five offerings were designed to bring forward some of the major offering income that is usually required at year’s end to meet all our ministry expenses.
During September, High-5: Back to (Sunday) School will provide an opportunity to support Sunday School and other vital ministries of Faith with a special gift or perhaps to catch up on offerings after summer travels. Please consider prayerfully how God has blessed you to be a blessing to others.
The start of another year of Sunday School kicks off with the Extravaganza on Sunday, September 8.
