Indoor Egg Hunt on Palm Sunday (also on Sat)

IndoorEggHunt

 

This is going to be a great weekend at Redeemer.  At our Albany (Sun 10 am), Rome (Sun 10 am), and Utica Campuses(Sat 6 pm, Sun 9 am, Sun 11 am) we will have an in-door Easter Egg Hunt.

Here are some important details to keep in mind:

  1. It will happen after each service in the hall of the Uptown Wing (Utica/Albany) and in Rome in the main level and Oneway Space.
  2. We will place foam eggs on the walls instead of plastic eggs.
  3. We will provide each kid with a map and together with their parent they will wander the hall (room) and mark on their map where they find eggs.
  4. They do not collect the foam eggs.
  5. When they are done they turn in their map and we give them candy in return.  We will have gift bags made up with different quantities of candy.  Based on what they mark on their map will determine which bag of candy they will receive.
  6. Don’t forget to invite friends and family

Parent Link Live

I wanted to share another great resource with you.  It’s called Parent Link Live brought to you by the reThink group.  They are the company that produces our preschool curriculum and many resources that we use.  Each month they post a podcast that is seven to ten minutes long talking about issues relating to parenting.  Here is an excerpt from their website explaining the vision…

Parent Link Live helps parents and church leaders understand how, by combining their influences, they can accomplish more for the spiritual wellbeing of a child than either could individually. With Parent Link Live, you’ll be able to plug Carey Nieuwhof’s insights on parenting essentials. As lead pastor of Connexus Community Church, Carey has become a highly recognized leader in enabling churches to partner with parents.

I’ve really enjoyed these podcasts and found them very helpful.  It’s well worth the time so take a minute and visit Parent Link Live and you can listen to January’s podcast here: https://soundcloud.com/rethinkgroup/growing-a-kids-faith
