3 Part Summer Challenge for 1st-5th Graders

This is a challenge for our 1st-5th grade children’s church kids.

Prizes:
IMG_0090Complete one part: Choose “big” prize from children’s church
Complete two parts: Kiwi Loco gift card
Complete all three: Trip to Roaring Springs in August (day TBD)

Scripture Challenge:
Memorize Philippians 2:1-18. You may choose the version of the Bible you would like to use. It does not have to be word perfect, but it needs to be very close. You must recite it all at one time.

IMG_0001Creed Challenge:
Memorize the Apostle’s Creed. This creed helps state what we believe as followers of Jesus.

Mission Challenge:
Read 2 of our missions books and turn in a short report on the books. The report should answer questions like, Where did the story take place? Who are the missionaries involved? What was your favorite part? What did you learn from the story?

You have until August 4th to complete the full challenge. You can use the whole summer to work on each part of the challenge at a time. You do not have to do all three things at once. For example, you do not have to recite the scripture and creed at the same time. Whatever you complete by August 4th will determine your prize.

Your parents can help you along the way! Examples of how they can help are by listening to DSC_0081you practice your memorization, helping you come up with memorizing tools, reading the books with you, thinking of a good question to answer in your report, or reading your report before you turn it in.

If you have any questions, ask!
